Still Wide Open

Still Wide Open

Neill Collins had to sit and bide his chance for a first team start after joining Wolves from Mick McCarthy's former club Sunderland for a knockdown £150,000.

So when injury forced captain Jody Craddock onto the sidelines, he took his chance with both hands and is now one of the first names pencilled into the teamsheet.

But despite recent public asssurances from

he manager that his place is safe, he still isnt taking anything for granted.

'Me and Rob have done well together. I had a good start in the side with Breeny and I've been able to carry that over,'

'I know I've got Gary and Jody waiting to get back in, but if you are at a big club it's always the case that good players ready to take your place.' he told the club's official site.

If Wolves are to push on, a solid defensive platform is going to be essential as they aim to confound all expectation and play some part in the promotion shake up.

And with the likes of Neill Collins at it's heart, they have every chance of doing so.
