Another good point and also a clean sheet at the sixth time of asking made sure that we are now up two places to 14th and more importantly five points clear of the drop zone.
You could even say we are effectively six points clear due to our relatively good goal difference of minus 22. It`s not bad in comparison to Hull`s minus 33, Burnley`s minus 34 and Wigan`s minus 30. It really could come down to that especially if everything is to play for on the final day of the season. The bookies are also starting to fancy us to stay up as our odds have lengthened to 9s, 10s and 11s.
It was a great atmosphere at Molineux yesterday as Wolves fans continuously cheered our team on after recent good performances away from. You would be mistaken to think that we had beaten Everton such was the cheer that greeted Mike Jones` final whistle.
We rode our luck at times but the determination of people like George Elokobi and Jody Craddock to get in important positions at crucial times paid dividends.
I always thought it would be hard for either team to get a good passing game together as the midfield was so crowded. Both teams opted for five men in midfield and it just ended up being a bit scrappy at times..
Following the result yesterday I feel it`s so important to carry the good form into next weekend. Arsenal will be really up for the game as they know that either Manchester United or Chelsea will drop points in their lunchtime clash. You get the feeling we may have to park the bus and attempt to catch them on the counter attack as we did at Villa Park last weekend.
I think next week will be the same as when we went to Eastlands to face Manchester City at the start of the season.
Everyone was on a high after winning at Wigan and we just wanted to see Wolves put in a good performance. As it happened, Wolves only lost 1-0 and were unlucky not to have taken anything from the game. If Wolves can put in a similar showing next week that doesn`t damage our goal difference then I will come away happy.
I`m really looking forward to going down to the Emirates, it`s now only one of three Premier League grounds I haven`t been to and it looks like a great place to both play and watch football. Here`s to another point (or three)!
Up the Wolves!!!
