Lets drag Newcastle into relegation fight

A win over Newcastle on Saturday would drag them back into the relegation dogfight according to our Mick.

Newcastle might feel comfortable sitting in 11th on 36 points, 4 points clear of relegation, however a win for Wolves and that would only leave them with a 1 point gap over ourselves.

"They`ve got 36 points but if we beat them, they`re in it, no question," Wolves gaffer Mick McCarthy told the Express & Star.

He continued: "Put it the other way if we win at Newcastle, are we out of it?

"They`ll be saying if they beat us they`ll be clearer just like Villa were saying before our last game.

"That would put seven points between us and them and would make them hard to catch."

A win for Newcastle would almost certainly secure their future in the Premier League, but a win for us would also go a long way in the battle to avoid the drop.

Vital Wolves Comment: Since Doyle was injured on international duty we have been running a front page poll asking who we should select to play in his place.

So far the voting is too close to call:

45% of the vote has gone for Steven Fletcher, with 45% also going to Sylvan Ebanks-Blake, after the link with the possible signing of Jeremie Aliadiere the 'Someone else' option at first rose from no votes to 7%, but this has since dropped to 5% while Stephen Ward has steadily picked up the odd vote lifting him to 5%.

I would like to think the vote for Ward to start was indeed an April Fool vote. And the other. I will be amazed if it is not Blake or Fletch who start; my vote went for Blakey but I am wondering if that was based more on Mick's selection history and subsequent expectancy... I see goals in this one again and whilst Mick has practically said he will be sticking with his 4-5-1 / 4-3-3 I think if we have gone behind and are struggling we may see an early switch to 4-4-2. I forget who it was but not so long back he did take a player off in the first half who was struggling which is something I don't think he would have done a couple of years ago so either way I am confident he has shed at least some of his stubborn skin and is ready to make changes in the best interest. It will only take half an hour to find out if whoever is given the chance looks capable of playing the role. As for Newcastle, if they are feeling any form of comfort they are as deluded as the Gab at Villa who's quote I could not help but include in the report after our win. It is an identical situation to the last game and just as we dragged Villa ever closer to the mire I believe we will achieve the same with Newcastle. The fear of not being able to take care of business against those in and around is disapearing. When the final whistle blows after the Fulham game I think we can be as high as 12th/13th.
