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

Friends Re-United

25 year old Lee Naylor has been at Wolves longer than any current player.

So if anyone would have memories of Leicester City's caretaker and assistant managers stints at the club, it would be him.

Lee was a schoolboy centre forward when Rob Kelly spotted him in a shcools cup final and brought him through into the under 14's side.

He then oversaw Lee's rapid development moving into the first team 3 years later, and he has nothing but respect for him. Speaking to the Express and Star Lee said

'He's a great bloke and I cančt say enough about him. He gave me a fresh lease of life and made me realise what I had to do.

'I played youth team football for Rob week-in week-out while I was still at school and he helped me into the reserves when I was 15.

'I know him very well and will look forward to saying hello to him.'

Mike Stowell was nearing the end of his time with Wolves when Lee made his first team debut at 17 but that did't stop him impressing the young left-back

'As for Stowelly, he was in the team when I broke through, and he never seemed to miss a game.

'He was a good professional who did everything right on and off the pitch and was a nice guy as well.'

Old friendships will be forgotten as soon as the whistle blows at three o'clock and Lee's only thoughts will be of a Wolves win, in what is never an easy game for either side.

'As for me, I'll just have to forget about who's in charge because once I cross the white line I'm focused on getting a result for Wolves.'

'We always seems to have hard-fought games against Leicester and there have been some really good ones down the years,' said Lee.

The most memorable of the two teams most recent meetings is the 4-3 Wolves win at Molineux in The Premiership, an incredible Wolves comeback.

Lee played in that match and reveals thatit was a stirring of self belief that inspired them to fight back, something Wolves certainly need to start showing now.

'That 4-3 game was mad, we thought we were down and out at 3-0 down.Then we suddenly had a spur of confidence and it was 1-2-3-4 and we won the game.'

If Wolves have to be hungry, Leicester rapidly need to gain an apetite more so.

But their midweek form showed signs that things might be improving for managerless City.

And for them, sitting currently just outside the relegaton zone, every point now is a small step to safety. As Lee is only too aware.

'With their position they've got to try and win the game, and they won at QPR the other night which always seems to happen when you change your manager.'

'We are under no illusions, wečve got to go out and give everything if we are going to get the three points.'

Against the team 21st in the League 3 points has to be minimum requirement.
