A Collective Effort

De Vries and Hunt still confident

Dorus De Vries today called for “100 per cent belief” from everyone at Molineux against Burnley on Saturday in pursuit of a victory which would boost Wolves efforts of Championship survival.


Wolves have enjoyed a decent run at home in recent weeks – taking ten points from the last five games – and the Dutch gloveman believes another united front can help push the team towards a crucial three points.


“We’ve still got everything to play for,” said De Vries.


“All we need to do now is be positive – and I mean everyone.


“This next game is of massive importance.


“Everyone needs to be as sharp as they can for Burnley and have 100 per cent belief that we can win the game.


“That goes for everyone in the squad and everyone in the crowd as well.


“The fans can make a difference – absolutely, especially at Molineux.


“This game is our focus. The Charlton game is in the past now and we have to take the positives and build on them now.


“There’s a bit of luck going against us, but we’ve been working really hard, and that’s the positive thing.


“We’ve had a better run of results over the last month and a half, but it shows how the league is going when we’re thinking ‘how many points is it going to take to get clear?’


“We’ve still got two games left and six points to play for, and we’ve got to be positive.”


It’s a message echoed by winger Stephen Hunt, whose return to fitness in recent weeks has also played a part in an improving set of results.


Hunt believes the time for any recriminations should be at the end of the season after Wolves have achieved survival, given what is at stake in the final two games.


“There can be a lot of finger-pointing going on at this time of the year with where we are in the table, but collectively, we’ve got to come together as a team and be ready for the biggest games of our careers on Saturday,” he said.


“I see it as that important. We as players have got to a level over the last two or three years but at the moment, we’re way below it.


“We all know that – it’s not rocket science – but once again, we have the chance to save ourselves.


“We’re thinking of that as a positive because we can be heroes to a certain degree, but we’ve all got to be willing to play for the team on the day.


“We’ve all got to give everything we’ve got and go for it.


“It’s probably the biggest game of our lives and that’s the way we’ve got to view it.


“Hopefully in the next two games we can get our rewards.”
