When Wolves beat us 2-0 at home on September 17th, four days after we had beaten QPR 6-0 away that was the first shock since we had lost our first two games of the season.
We had played six and won six since then, but we didn’t turn up for that game and played very poorly.
We did the same thing later when we were beaten 1-0 by Blackburn at home on 26th November, after we had won nine games in a row.
Isaac Hayden – tough game at Wolves
And then Blackburn somehow beat us 1-0 at their place and they did the double over us and they are still 3rd bottom on the league.
Wolves are in 18th place at the moment, so lets hope we don’t lose this game at Molineux on Saturday in the late kick-off game.
Isaac Hayden has been interviewed in the Chronicle today and this is some of what he said:
“Wolves beat us up here and they have a few players that I know quite well.”
“I know it will be a tough game. It’s a typical Championship game for me.”
“They are not really in contention to go up but they aren’t going down.”
“They are middle for diddle.” “They will make it difficult for us, it’s just our job to put the effort in and our quality will shine through.”
“I quite like Molineux as a stadium.” “It’s a nice stadium and they are a big club.”
“They have an experienced manager (Paul Lambert) who knows the Championship.”
“So it’s about us being focused on ourselves and making sure we’re ready for the battle.”
“Once we earn the right to play then it’s up to us.” “They have a decent squad and some good young players.”
“Helder Costa on the right-hand side is a good player.” “It’s all down to us. It’s in our own hands.”
“We as players know that, the fans know that and the manager knows that.” “It’s up to us as players on the pitch.”
“Whoever goes out there has to do the business.” “We are confident in our abilities and confident in each other.”
“We know where we should be. It’s just about us producing it.”
“I think the main thing is to take each game as it comes and make sure we put a gap between second and third.”
Brighton play at home to Burton Albion tomorrow before our game, so they could go back to top of the league with a win.
Newcastle will taking a massive 4,400 fans to the game as they cheer on the lads to what we all hope with be a promotion this season – but nothing is ever certain.
Especially at Newcastle.
We assume Isaac is fit for this game, although he was taken off injured last Saturday against Derby County early in the second half.
A win in this game would be a great result for us.
