Karl Henry marked his return to midfield on Saturday with a solid performance and a match winning goal that has seen Wolves once again climb into the play off positions.
His 30 yard effort owed as much to a goalkeeping error as anything, but he's not losing any sleep over that. No matter how they go in, they all count.
'I didn't really see what happened. I just struck it and the lads said the keeper probably should have saved it but I'm not complaining.' he told the club's official site.
In keeping with the general mood at Molineux since Mick McCarthy assembled the current squad, Karl was happy enough to back in the midfield engineroom, but it was the reult and the overall team performance that gave him most pleasure, and most to think about.
'I was happy to be back in centre midfield but the main thing was another win and we've put a great run together at the moment.'
It will take all of Wolves fighting spirit to overcome their next opponents - West Bromwich Albion, tipped by many to be automatic promotion contenders.
With two 3-0 defeats to the local rivals alreasy this season, Wolves have something to prove against Tony Mowbrays men on Sunday afternoon.
In particular, Karl highlighted the recent cup defeat at Molineux that saw Wolves put in possibly their worst display of the year, and it's something he is eager to put right.
'We know how the last two games against Albion went against us and we're disappointed with the results - especially the home Cup game.
'We'll be out to put that right first and foremost with a good performance and with the high we're on the moment, with being on such a great run and everyone so positive around the place, we couldn't be in a better position going into the game.
'We want to win and want to go out there and prove we can do better than we did last time.'
