Pick Up, Dust Down, Get On

They say that true champions show their mettle not in their victories, but how they react to their defeats.

Wolves have that most bitter taste in their mouths once more, the first time in nearly ten hours of football, and how they react to it could define their entire season.

Talking to the E & S, young defender Neill Collins showed all the hallmarks of being a champion as he discussed the effect of last nights loss to Coventry City.

"Sure, we are all sore losers,' he said

'But it is important not to get too downhearted when you are defeated. You have to look at the next game and see if you can win that.

"There are probably going to be more defeats between now and the end of the season for us, but hopefully there will not be too many.'



hey're calling it the division no one wants to win.

No runaway leaders, teams dropping points when you least expect it, a promotion race as wide open as anyone can remember.

Collins sees how teams deal with their defeats as being the crucial factor in deciding who gains promotion and a £60 million payday.

And the need for Wolves to get back on track this coming Saturday, and back to winning ways.

'Everyone seems to be beating each other in this league and it is the team that bounces back who triumphs in the end. It`s going to be a tight finish." he said.

"We have been on a good little run and we must now try and repeat that until the end of the season."

"We must now look forward to Saturday`s game at Sheffield Wednesday and look to take maximum points,"
