Wolves break with the pack

A 3-1 win over the Baggies not only gives us the bragging rights, but more importantly also puts us a point clear of the relegation places.

Within minutes of the second half kicking off, this game was all but buried.

A brace from Steven Fletcher either side of Adlene Guedioura effort, put Wolves 3-0 ahead after 47 minutes.

West Brom did get one back to make it 3-1 and they huffed and puffed for much of the second half, but the three points were never in doubt.

'It is pleasing and timely to be out of the bottom three,' our Mick told the BBC after the game.

But for those of you who have already trialled our Mick and decided he is a dead man walking, he did add: 'I am still fully aware that there is work to be done.'

With two games remaining the feeling around Molineux will be that little bit more positive going into the games against Sunderland and Blackburn.

We might only be a point clear, but it now feels like we can build the momentum to avoid the drop.

Vital Wolves Comment: In my interview with the Vital Baggies site I predicted that we'd keep a clean sheet against the Baggies. My prediction was met with mocking.

But while Odemwingie who I did highlight as the dangerman did indeed score again, unlike in recent weeks, he had to rely on grabbing the goal from the penalty spot as he was shut out by Wolves in open play..which of course is great news going into the final games as the defence can also take a moral boost from the result.

It may not have been a clean sheet, but only being beaten from the penalty spot is as good as when the team are 3 up.

I've never been concerned about bragging rights perhaps because, as I grew up just to the west of the Black Country, most people supported the Wolves. Personally, I would like to see all four BC clubs remain in the PL, an aim apparently shared by WBA defenders. Although three could conceivably go down, there is a good chance that all of the teams will stay up. For me, the only cause for jubilation after yesterday's match was the gaining of three points.

Bragging rights and football rivalries are all part of football, I think it puts that little edge on a game that played at another part of the year would just be another game. In this instance, obviously the points

Does this mean that I have no soul? I am a zealous fan of Wolves but tend to view all the teams they play in a dispassionate way, merely considering their strengths and weaknesses and whether we will win points off them. As the season progresses and tension mounts, my focus becomes even more forensic. I cannot understand the attitude that it's OK to struggle as long as we beat AV, Birmingham and WBA, though this will probably make me appear as a middle class tosser posing as a football fan.
