Big week for Wolves

Big week for Wolves

It's a big week for Wanderers and no matter how much Wolves gaffer Ståle Solbakken tries to play it down, we all know it.

The new boss quite understandable wants to play down expectations while his new side begin to net together and build for the future.

With the obvious exception of the Chelsea game which many of us will pretend never happened, the new season has been quite promising.

A shaky start followed by three wins on the spin against Leicester, Ipswich and Peterborough have bumped us up into sixth place in the Championship table.

Next up is Sheffield Wednesday at Molineux on Saturday, followed by Crystal Palace on Tuesday and then an away trip to Blackburn.

Wolves skipper Karl Henry is targeting at least two wins from the next three.

"If we could maybe take six or seven points out of that possible nine, we`d go into the next international break on the back of another great week. The League is definitely our priority. We had a tough sequence last week and now we play Sheffield Wednesday, Crystal Palace and Blackburn - so it`s another huge week." Henry told the Express & Star.

But before you wonder if we are getting ahead of ourselves after a few good wins, its quite clear that our feet are obviously still firmly on the ground.

He added: "It means everything (rebuilding the team). At the beginning of last week we were second-bottom and now we`re sixth. Had we had a rotten week, we`d be looking at the top teams thinking we`ve got a mountain to climb."

"Those three wins have given us a good start, but we`re not getting carried away, We started appallingly against Leeds, we weren`t great against Derby and we were poor at Cardiff.

"There`s a long way to go."
