No playing down massive game against Wigan

No playing down massive game against Wigan

There is no point denying just how big this weekends clash between Wolves and Wigan really is.

OK, so it might not be one that will grab the attentions of the neutrals, in fact it's unlikely to see a packed Molineux.

But after just ten games of the season, there is no denying that it is the proverbial six-pointer.

"Clearly everybody knows Wolves versus Wigan is a huge game. Sunday`s clearly one we need to take care of. We know how big a game Wigan is and we`ll look after that this week." our Mick told the Express & Star.

Wolves currently sit one place above the drop zone, two points clear of Blackburn and Bolton and three points ahead of Wigan.

A win for Wolves could see us jump up the table as high as 13th, a defeat and we could be rooted to the bottom of the league.

Vital Wolves Comment: That daft idea about ending relegation in the Premier League, doesn't sound so daft at the moment! ;)

It is that simple like you say Akela. If we don't then it really could be curtains for Mick and also for our season!!

We simply cannot allow a team who have lost the last 7 get anything from us at home, especially after showing some good football against City. UTW!!

This game is less than a must win game because, strictly speaking, we can stay up if we lose to Wigan by a cricket score. On the other hand, it's far more important than a 'six-pointer because it will act as a barometer of our progress. If we cannot beat a team with a worse record than ours, what chance do we have of succeeding against other relegation rivals? Of course, we could repeat last year's trick of beating MC, MU and Chelsea at home but that's highly unlikely and should be excluded from any calculation. I think it's going to be a very nervy game and might turn on a dreadful mistake, always possible with our team.

We can win wirh the right team selection if SF is fit he has to play wirh Doyle up front with Hunt and Ohara and to other midfielders Henry being one because we all know MM wont drop him that leaves AG DE OR NM we dont need to play with to wingers to me that should give enough up front and some bite in midfield to win.

Fletcher is ruled out,then. SEB or Vokes to come in, or five midfielders?Surely we have to play two up front for this one.

Well with Fletcher out there is a bit of a problem with selection, considering we put in more crosses than any other team according to the stas then I would play SV up front and have KD feeding off him. Personally AG needs to play alongside JOH with Hunt and NM. We have to go attacking from minute one. I can't see it as Kia says MM will play KH and he does love DE who is struggling for form at the moment. Confidence is needed!!!
