Wolves currently sit in seventh place in the Premier League and 12 points off Arsenal in sixth. They have been in excellent form this season and have adapted to life in the Premier League like a duck to water. If Wolves finish the season in seventh place, it will be the highest position a newly promoted Premier League team has achieved since Ipswich Town who finished 5th in the 2000/01 season.

As for ourselves, following this difficult match at Molinuex, we have two must-win matches on the horizon. We will not be playing next week because we are out of the FA Cup but in two weeks time, we will come up against Huddersfield and Burnley both at home in the space of a week. These matches remind me of last March when we beat Southampton at home in a must-win game and that began a four-game winning streak that saw us to safety and a top half finish. It's still possible, so let's hope for something similar this time around.

Memory Lane

Wolves 1 - 2 Newcastle United - 01/10/2011 (Premier League)

For the first time since August 1997, Newcastle United went on an unbeaten run of 10 Premier League matches, a run that stretched back to the last few games of the previous season. The unbeaten run later came to an end in November against eventual league winners, Manchester City but the unbeaten start was a big factor in qualifying for European football for the first time since 2007.</
