Dave Edwards today re-affirmed Wolves’ players commitment to new boss Dean Saunders in the wake of finally getting off the mark at Millwall last night.
Wolves’ recorded their first victory under Saunders at the tenth attempt thanks to goals from Edwards and Sylvan Ebanks-Blake, with the Welsh international midfielder believing it was just rewards for the work of the manager.
“He inherited a bit of bad form and low confidence when he came in but he’s so enthusiastic and it’s a big result,” said Edwards.
“He tries every day to instil a bit of confidence back into us and the lads are 100 per cent behind him.
“Hopefully we can build on it, get through to the end of the season, stay in the league and go next season but we need to win games to stay in the league.
“I’m sure if we go on a little run now the fans will be right behind him.
“He deserves a few results for how hard he works.
“He lives and he breathes football and that’s what this club needs.
“If the supporters knew what he was like at the training ground and how passionate he is they would love him.
“They’d know he gives everything he’s got and it’s up to the players to match his enthusiasm.”
Edwards, who believes Wolves built on the injury time equaliser achieved at Watford last Friday, is also aiming to add more goals between now and the end of the season with his impressive first-time effort at the New Den only his second of the campaign.
“I’m not great with goals this year,” he added.
“I’ve only got the two and I should be scoring more, especially in this league.
“It’s only my second of the season so hopefully it can kick start me with goals.
“As a team I think that goal we got against Watford had an impact with confidence.
“We hadn’t had the winning feeling for a long time and results hadn’t been good enough for a while but hopefully this will be the lift that we need.”
