Better And Stronger

Gaffer looks ahead.

Dean Saunders says Wolves will fight to the end in their battle to stay in the npower Championship – but if they don’t succeed will rebuild in a bid to return better and stronger next season.

Whatever Saturday brings for the club, the boss is set for talks next week with chairman Steve Morgan and CEO Jez Moxey. 

Dean admitted: “I’d imagine a lot of the players won’t want to stay.

“They won’t want to be playing in League One, so if that happens, we’ll talk about it. 

“Once we get through this week and get to the end of the season, we’ll probably have a meeting – myself, Jez and the chairman – and we’ll draw a plan up.

“Whether we’re in the Championship or League One, we’ll draw a plan up to make the club great again.

“That’s what I want to do, but if we don’t stay in the Championship, it will just take me a bit longer to do it.

“But at the moment we have to concentrate on Saturday because it might not happen. 

“Let’s just do what we can control and that’s winning on Saturday.”

When asked if he had been approached by any of his squad intimating a possible move, Dean replied: “No. We haven’t spoken about it.

“We’ve all just been back in training on the back of Saturday’s game and we’re still in with a chance of staying up.

“I’ve told the players they’ve got to believe they can do it at the weekend.

“We’re training as normal this week and we’ll prepare properly for the game and try to win the game, because if we win, we’ve got a great chance.

“The players were a bit down on Monday and not so bad yesterday, but by Friday, we’ll be motivated and ready for the challenge.”

On the possibility of one of the current loan players at Molineux, Kaspars Gorkss, becoming a permanent signing, he added: “I haven’t had a chat with him yet – he’s better than that level (League One) - and hopefully it doesn’t come to it.

“He’ll have his fingers crossed more than anybody that we can do something because he likes it here.

“He’s a trier and he’s proven too at this level, having won the title the last two years.

“He’s come into a difficult situation as well.

“We’ve just got to win this game and then we’ll have a chat next week.”
