'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Wolves Boss Ahead Of Luton

Glenn Hoddle has spoken to SkySports on the eve of Wolves league match with Luton, and was full of praise for the way his side go about tackling the opposition these days.

'I'm delighted with our football, we're playing some wonderful football, how I want football played.' he said

Wolves problems in front of goal this season are well documented, and they havent been made any easier by injuries to the existing front line. as Hoddle points out.

'The missing link is the clinical finishing which is why I'm trying to bring someone in. I think with the strikers we've got here, we've missed the fact that Kenny Miller and Carl Cort were both out injured at the same time when they were both getting goals for us and I think thats hurt us.'

'But Corty's on his way back, Kenny's got a goal against Sheffield, since his hamstring injury. So within the camp we might have a chance of putting that right, plus, if I bring someone in we've got another chance to put it right. If we score from set plays, If the centre halves go up and maybe they can do their jobs sometimes attacking wise, we can very quickly turn draws into wins and that's what we've got to start to do.'

Lots of teams have had a fantastic run, and then had a bad run. We havent had that. We havent had a bad run and really havent gone on a run of 5 or 6 back to back wins. If its going to happen, and we've got to make it happen, I'd prefer it to happen around about this time, or February or March, because thats very important,we find ourselves 7th, not 12th where were playing catch up.'

Luton lost a two goal lead at home to Liverpool in the Cup, but Hoddle thinks that can fire Luton on, rather than demoralise them.

' I think it will give them a lit of confidence with the way they played. If you look at any other Premiership side outside of Chelsea, Luton would've won. Liverpool are probably the form club in the Premiership this season and they showed their true class by what they did. But credit to Luton, they were marvellous and they will look at their performance and take a lot out of that rather than they've been knocked out The Cup. I think that will give them confidence rather than the other way round'

Looking ahead to Friday, Hoddle offered his thoughts on Wolves chances against Mike Newell's battlers.

'We know they're a good side, they've done very well this year. We had a tough game down there, when we drew 1-1 and it will be no different when they come to Molineux. But we're playing some good stuff and if we can be a bit more clinical im sure we can go on the run were looking for and if it starts Friday, I'll be very pleased.' he said.

Wolves fans must get tired of hearing the word clinical, and tired of seeing it lacking every match. 3 points against Luton is a must to keep Hoddle's men in with a chance of the play off's in a season they were tipped for a top 2 placing. Thats the price Wolves have paid for hearing but not understanding the word clinical.
