Wolves still up for the fight

Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Terry Connor insists his side are still up for the fight as they bid to pull away from the bottom of the Premier League and avoid the drop.

Wolves sit four points from safety after winning just once in 16 league games – including five defeats in their last six and anyone betting on football will know how bad things look.

Despite their terrible form and precarious league position, Connor believes the players at his disposal have the stomach for the fight.

"I've got 20 players to choose from, and they all want to play. They're all up for training – those lads coming back from their injuries want to prove they're fit and ready to play," Connor told the club's official website.

"Nobody wants to be relegated, so as a player if you can help in some way, if you can come back and make a contribution - whether it's half a game or all eight - make that contribution."

Wolves entertain fellow strugglers Bolton Wanderers in a must-win clash on Saturday with no form to speak of at Molineux.

The Black Country outfit have lost all seven of their home games since the turn of the year and have not tasted victory on home soil since they beat Sunderland 2-1 on December 4.

Connor could welcome Karl Henry, Dave Davis and Stephen Hunt back for the Bolton game, while Michael Kightly should feature after recovering from the knock which forced him off in the defeat at Norwich City last weekend and people following the online football betting need to bear this in mind.

One player a long way from a return is Jamie O'Hara, who is sidelined with a groin injury.

"Jamie is still with the physios. He still hasn't been outside yet to do any real training. So we'll just keep monitoring him as he goes along," Connor added.

Connor will need all hands on deck during the run-in.
