What a difference a week makes, eh? From the boos and general dissatisfaction which greeted the final whistle against Rotherham, to the cheers seven days later at Fulham, this was a huge seven days in Wolves’ season and while we are not quite safe yet, it’s fair to say everyone is at least breathing just a little bit easier.
Paul Lambert’s team are probably now in a position where two or three more wins will see them over the line. A quick glance at the table shows just how important the victories against Brentford and then Fulham were in ensuring Wolves kept their head above the water and a gap between themselves and the bottom three. There is no time to relax yet but if the players and manager can’t take confidence from the last two games then they never will.
I’ve no doubt Lambert will now be eager to reach safety as quickly as possible and also finish the season strongly to build momentum heading into the summer and toward next term. Wolves had struggled against Rotherham and were lucky in the end to take three points. Yet at Fulham, just like at Brentford, they were fully deserving of the victory.
