Jack delighted after Man of the Match display

Wolves Man of the Match Jack Robinson was keen to share the praise with his team-mates after they produced an assured defensive display to beat Hull City at Molineux last night.

After a tense first half, Wolves got the breakthrough through Kevin Doyle early on in the second period, and then held the league's second-placed side at bay with a strong rear-guard performance.

The on-loan Liverpool man was given the Man of the Match award after the game, but admitted that the whole team should take the credit for what could prove to be a vital win in the scrap for survival.

"It's a fantastic result for us," Robinson said. "We worked really hard as a back line to keep them out, but it's not just us, it's the whole team.

"The front players worked hard to stop their attacks at source, and that work-rate spread through the whole team. Everyone's working hard and we've got our rewards with a fantastic result.

"On a personal level, it's great to get Man of the Match - it's my first one for Wolves, and hopefully I can get a couple more."

The result was vital for Wolves, after they suffered a 3-1 defeat at home to relegation rivals Huddersfield Town on Saturday, and Robinson believes that the 1-0 win is not only hugely important in the context of the nPower Championship table, but shows the amount of character and resilience in the Wolves squad.

"We showed a massive amount of character," he explained. "The way the lads played was excellent - we knew we had to find something extra after we lost on Saturday.

"The performance showed our passion and shows how much we care. We knew we needed the three points more than ever - we had a different gameplan, we tried to pass the ball and keep it better and that's what we did, and that's what got us the points."

The victory has lifted Wolves out of the bottom three - they are now level on points with Huddersfield and Peterborough, but are sandwiched between the two due to goal difference.

Dean Saunders takes his side to the capital to face Charlton Athletic on Saturday, and Robinson is hopeful that the confidence gained from last night's win will prove crucial as Wolves go into their final three games.

He said: "We've just got to take our confidence into the next game now, and hopefully we'll get another three points on Saturday at Charlton, although we know it'll be a tough place to go.

"Hopefully we can use this as a springboard for another good run and get ourselves safe."
