'we've given ourselves a chance' that was the message from Wolves striker Kevin Doyle after we snatched a point at Newcastle.
After being two goals down inside the opening 20 minutes, every Wolves fan must have feared the worst, but just like we have done in the past, the fighting spirit returned for an unlikely result.
It was only a point, but with Terry Connor being named as Mick McCarthy's replacement until the end of the season following the farcical hunt for a new manager, this point somehow felt more valuable than most.
With the relegation battle being any three from the five clubs cut adrift at the bottom of the table, the single point elevated us two places and out of the relegation zone.
'We've been written off as if we're 10 points adrift, We're out of the bottom three after this result and we believe in ourselves, but we need to reproduce that kind of form between now and the end of the season, The last week has been tough for everybody. Everyone got on very well with Mick (McCarthy). Once they got yesterday out of the way and appointed the new manager, we wanted that to happen and we got it.' Kevin Doyle told the Independent.
While the fans were not 100% convinced with the appointment, the most important thing appears to be that the players were.
Doyle continued: 'Terry has been the manager for the last two weeks anyway, as he's been taking training and dictating to us what we've been doing. It's been a transition, but at least it's been a smooth one. We're delighted he's got the job. Can we survive? Yes, definitely. Before the game we were only in the bottom three on goal difference and we were in a worse state than this last year at the same stage.
'People are very quick to write you off, but they're also quick to big you up - we just need to remember that we've given ourselves a chance.'
Vital Wolves Comment: Next month brings some crucial games which could ultimately decide our fate.
The Fulham game is followed by Blackburn who are currently one point below us, then after the Manchester United and Norwich games, it is Bolton who are two points behind.
Those two games could prove crucial when it looks like that three from the current bottom five will go down.
