We have to build on result says Doyle

We have to build on result says Doyle

After 24 games Wolves are currently out of the relegation places.

While we all would have liked to have seen Wolves push on this season, realistically if that had been offered before the season had started, most would have took it.

Add in the fact that we've only been in the relegation places for two weeks of the year, the facts do not look too bad.

The problem has been that this season, the bottom of the Premier League table looks poorer than last season.

It may have taken us till May to have won back-to-back fixtures last season, but this time last year we had won 7 games and were still bottom of the league.

This season we have won 5 and are 3 points worse off in comparison.

In terms of the league table position things might look better (and at the end of the season is all that matters), but in terms of progression, we appear to have taken a step backwards.

But who knows what the win over QPR might do for confidence? Perhaps it can act as a catalyst to an improved second half of the season?

'It could have been easy for us all to drop our heads and sulk after what happened against Liverpool but we didn't,' Doyler told Wolves Official Website.

He continued: 'We put on a good performance after a disappointing midweek performance and result.

The 3 points lifted Wolves out of the relegation places and sets up the ideal preparation for the Black Country Derby with West Bromwich Albion on Sunday.

But Wolves really need to build on the result going forward and put a run together to ease the pressure on gaffer Mick McCarthy.

Doyle added: 'Three points is good but will mean nothing if we carry on over the next few weeks and don't get anything.

'We are going into the derby game having been disappointing the last time we played West Brom.

'It's a massive game for us, we're at home and have to build on this win.

'We can't let this be a one-off, that's the message we've all got to learn.

Back to back wins after we've only won 3 all season... One lucky win and they all spouting their gobs off again.. even that useless sack RJ is beating his chest ... Another Wolfie mentioned it on another forum, the only way we will suervive is if Wigan, Blackburn and co keep being useless... mick mccarthy has done absolute nothing to warrant us staying up and it will be down to other's oor performance rather than us playing ourselves to safety. On the plus, ive noticed a complete u-turn from those who I used to argue with, online and in person, would seem there is now no one left who still wants mick in charge... so mick, when are you going to do the honorable thing and leave?

Hi AdMant, I still want Mick in charge! Funny how if we do now stay up its down to other teams being poorer than us, rather than us just being good enough to stay up. Also funny how despite everything thinking Mick is apparently useless despite getting us into the Premier League to begin with that 67% on the poll think we will win on Sunday and 0% think we will lose, not a very scientific measure granted, but there has to be some kind of support considering WBA finished midtable last season.
