Boss Dean Saunders says Wolves have to quickly move on from their Nottingham Forest disappointment to focus on a “massive” game against Bristol City on Saturday.
Wolves currently sit fourth from bottom in the npower Championship, one position above City, but the two clubs are both locked on 39 points and separated only by two goals.
And those league positions could also have changed by the weekend, with Peterborough away to Leeds on Tuesday and Barnsley at home to Brighton.
Wolves were more than a match for in-form Forest at the City Ground, but ultimately that meant little as another defeat raised the stakes ahead of Saturday’s big showdown.
“Since I have been here we have been ‘in’ all of the games we have played and the ones we have lost have been by the odd goal up till Forest,” says Saunders.
“They have all been close like the Forest game.
“We ran into them at the wrong time really with the run they are on and that means they have a lot of players who are confident and you put chances away when you are confident.
“We have to put it behind us because we have got a massive game next week.
“It’s a six pointer against Bristol City and that is the important thing now.
“We can still stay up yes and we have to take some spirit from the performance at Forest.
“We are not in the relegation zone at the moment and have got to go into the Bristol City game thinking we can do them some damage.
“They are below us at the moment and that is where we have got to keep them.”
After Saturday’s game there is a two-week break from league fixtures due to the programme of internationals.
