GAFFER | We Go To Win


15:00 17th March 2017

Paul Lambert looks back at Tuesday's win and ahead to the trip to Fulham.

Lambert says that the aim going into Saturday’s trip to Fulham, is to win the game.

Wolves have picked up seven points from their last three games, the most recent being a 2-1 win away to Brentford on Tuesday night.

Lambert revealed his delight with the way in which his side won at Griffin Park, he believes that Wolves were ‘dominant with and without the ball.’

He began, “We’re obviously playing well, even when we lost some games, I think we’ve come away and played well but not got anything from the games.

“On Tuesday night, everyone was really on their game - I think the last few games have been really pleasing.

“From start to finish, we were really good. If we keep playing with that consistency and add one or two more in the summer time, then we will be a lot healthier.

“The dominance in the game at Brentford was excellent - with and without the ball, we were really strong.

“We created chances and the entries into the penalty area were incredible. We had one or two players coming back from injury as well which was great - over 90 minutes, I thought we were very good.

"Saturday (vs Rotherham) was an ugly win - but we had to win. There was so much pressure on the team and they came through it.

“Tuesday was a totally different game, Brentford are a good side - the way we played against them was great.

“There are a lot of teams in the same position as ourselves, there’s not much in it.

“There will be teams sleep walking into it and there will be teams that are walk out if it as well.

“We’re in better shape than we were a few weeks ago, but confidence-wise and playing-wise, it never left us - we just struggled to pick results up."

Wolves travel to Fulham this Saturday - they sit 7th in the Sky Bet Championship table, just one point outside the play-off places.

Lambert was full of praise for Saturday’s opponents - he labelled them as ‘the best footballing side in the league’.

The gaffer says that the expectancy will be on the home side to win the game, and that could be where Wolves prosper.

“It’s important to go to Fulham and try to win - we will try to do the same as what we’ve been doing and try to win.

“We’re up against probably the best footballing team in the league, in my opinion.

“We had a cracking game with them at Molineux in December. They're just outside the play-offs, they've been doing it for a few years, playing that way - it’s a game that we’re going to try and win, if we do what we’ve done the last couple of weeks then we’ll have a good chance.

“They may be feeling a bit more anxious because they’re playing at home, the expectancy level can be higher - all fans think that their team should be higher than they actually are.

“Fulham may be in that category, but as a football team, they're very good.

“It will be nice if we can come through this game unscathed - it will be great for us as it will keep us on a roll.

“We will go there and try to take the game to them - we know we’re up against a very good side but we know we've got a chance.”

Lambert has no new injury concerns for the trip to Craven Cottage - Richard Stearman, however, is unable to play due to Fulham being his parent club.
