Bjorn Hoping For Robins Repeat

Sigurdarson confident going into crunch game

Wolves striker Bjorn Sigurdarson is hoping that he and his fellow forwards are able to continue where they left off when they face Bristol City at the weekend.
The third from bottom Robins visit Molineux on Saturday for a game that is likely to have a big bearing on the race to avoid relegation from the nPower Championship.
Despite the teams now being separated by goal difference alone in the league table, Wolves dominated the reverse fixture at Ashton Gate earlier in the season, with Sigurdarson, Kevin Doyle and Sylvan Ebanks-Blake all finding the target during an impressive away performance in December.
"We know we can do it against them," says the Icelandic forward ahead of the crunch clash. "When you've scored against a team previously, it can give you good memories, which bring confidence.
"Every game is vitally important at this stage of the season, particularly with the position that we're in, and we need to find that belief and confidence that we got from that game and take it out onto the pitch on Saturday.
"We must all pull together now, and if we do that against Bristol City at the weekend, we should get the three points which will get us away from the relegation zone - it's crucial that we do."
That goal in the 4-1 win at Ashton Gate - the former Lillestrom man struck the fourth just before half time - was the third of Sigurdarson's four so far in a Wolves shirt, in what is the striker's first season in English football.
He has played a part in each of Wolves' last nine league outings, with his performances both up front and out on the right of midfield earning praise from boss Dean Saunders.
Sigurdarson himself believes that he is currently in the best form of his fledgling Wolves career, and is hopeful that he can build on his recent displays to ensure that the club stay in the Championship.
"I think I've been doing well," he says. "The manager said last week that I had done the most running in our recent matches, and that has always been a big part of my game.
"I work hard and do my best in every game, and to come on as a substitute and play a part in the victory at Millwall was great as it served as a confidence boost both for me and the team.
"This is the best spell I've had since I've been in England, and hopefully I can now keep that going into the Bristol City game and help the team get the win we need."
