One step forward, two steps back for Wolves

One step forward, two steps back for Wolves

In what was deemed our latest must-win game, Wolves once again stumbled to a defeat.

The loss dumps us back to the bottom of the Premier League table.

In such a tight division, Wolves seem to be going about things completely backwards this season.

Wins against Manchester City and Liverpool should have been unexpected bonus points, but instead they've proved crucial in keeping us within touching distance of those above us.

We need the points against those in and around us and yet we've now lost to West Ham, Wigan (twice!), Fulham and you could even throw in Aston Villa into the current mix.

(We've also lost to Blackpool but with their amazing form I don't include them in the relegation mix.)

So on to the game itself, Frederic Piquionne's cross after an hour ended up in the back of the net after a touch from Ronald Zubar.

Wolves unfortunately didn't find Robert Green in England World Cup form and instead found an in form shot stopper who denied us chance after chance, before Freddie Sears sealed the win in the 79th minute.

'We are two points from safety and as far as I am aware we are not getting relegated in the morning.' McCarthy told the BBC after the game.

'We are scrapping away and we played well enough today, we should have equalised to be honest.

Vital Wolves Comment: Mick concluded: 'We have to just keep playing the way we have in the last two games without giving goals away.' Obviously easier said than done, lets hope the cheque book comes out soon to improve our defence.

Is'nt that the general idea?to score goals without the other team scoring.It's a bit like a boxer Mick!you hit without getting hit.But you need the personal to perform this function.VitalWolves advice?spend some money this week on players that we will play on the pitch and not need time to settle or get fit or have a wife living abroad or sit on the bench for 75 miutes before you bring them on.

I have just read the stats again, 10 shots on target, 15 in total (to their 11) 10 corners to their 5... when is the last time we scored off a corner? Will Stephen Fletcher ever start another game for us, cos that is a pretty expensive substitute. Chelsea at home, Manchester City away and a tricky cup tie in the middle. Funnily enough, if we do somehow manage to beat Chelsea we could find ourselves 15th.

The pattern of results indicates that we will win the next match, whomever we are playing. At least, having taken it easy yesterday, the players will have plenty of energy to expend.

We will play much better against Chelsea and be cruelly denied by a late goal. And I don't reckon we will get anyone of note in the transfer window.

Baggies, Villa, Birmingham and ourselves all separated by just four points in January. Who wouldn't have taken that if on offer at the start of the season??

A very good point well raised Akela, and keep an eye out for an updated article on the survival battle with input from all the other clubs- will be interested to see where everyone else thinks they are going to finish. Never pretty is it, bottom of the league, but as unlikely as it may seem write now a win over Chelsea and we could jump 5 places the same West Ham did on Saturday. We'll see eh
