Lucky to have this set of players says Mick

Lucky to have this set of players says Mick

Wolves and Spurs played out a thriller at Molineux.

The entertainment levels and the commitment shown from the Wolves players clearly showed that if we can keep this level up, we will avoid the drop this season.

'I'm delighted that the players get credited for their quality and I am always proud of their effort and commitment and the way they play,' our Mick told Wolves Official Website.

We had to come from behind twice to get something out of the game and were even forced to equalise twice late on when referee Mark Halsey disallowed Richard Stearman's goal.

But with three minutes remaining Steven Fletcher bagged the equaliser to send everyone happy with a 3-3 draw.

He continued: 'I admire them because they don't leave anything in the dressing room when they go out on the pitch.'

'To keep coming back from behind shows what a great group of players I am lucky to have.'

Vital Wolves Comment: Do goalkeepers get too much protection? For me, while clearly biased I didn't see anything wrong in the Stearman's goal and yet a foul was given to save Heurelho Gomes.

Just seems a bit soft to me.

Well, it was not always apparent early on in the season. To use a McCarthyism, the players at times did roll over to have their tummy tickled. However, performances have improved over the last few games and, even better, they have been consistently good. Clearly, the real prospect of relegation concentrated the mind and the players have responded to the challenge. Perhaps it's O'Hara's influence. Even Stearman has cut out the silly mistakes and is beginning to realise his true potential. I no longer worry about the outcome of matches and feel that we do possess the skill and the determination to avoid the drop. It's still not certain though, and that is due to complacency and the throwing away of points in games we should have won, especially against our relegation rivals. Wouldn't it be sad if, having found a winning formula and the makings of a mid-table team, we still go down and lose our best players?

The Wigan -v- Blues type of matches are the ones which complicate the calculations regarding our chances of survival. Naturally, I would like both sides to lose but, as this is impossible, is the obvious solution a draw? It might be ... but only if we win and make ground on both teams. If not, we have a choice: not that we can affect the outcome. Do we (a) want to see our nearer rival driven further into the mire and the other one move further out of it, or (b) pull back the latter into the mire, while seeing the former make up ground on us. I faced this dilemma when watching the Blues -v- WBA game.
