Sako Time!

Winger hopes for turning point

Bakary Sako is hoping his tenth goal of the season could yet prove his most important after helping Wolves secure a last gasp point against Watford last night.



The winger found the net with his right foot in the third minute of stoppage time at Molineux to pick up a crucial point against a Hornets side on a hot run of form and with the best away record in the npower Championship.


The point wasn’t enough to lift Wolves out of the relegation zone ahead of today’s fixtures, but at least provided a positive end to the game to take into Tuesday’s trip to Millwall.


“Maybe it will be a very important goal - I'm confident it can be,” said Sako.


“I really enjoyed it and I’m very proud to score for the club.


“So now we've got to keep working and we'll get a win.


“It's very difficult but we have to keep our heads up, keep working and stick together.


“I think everyone enjoys scoring goals, but I score for the team, to help my mates.


“Hopefully we will win at Millwall, we just need a little bit of luck to help us, but we just have to keep working.”


Boss Dean Saunders has highlighted Sako as Wolves’  most dangerous threat, but believes he will still get better – and get more goals – with work on his positional play.


“Sako is a very good player and we can see how talented he is,” said the boss.


“He can maybe get into the positions like he did for the goal a bit more.


“There were a number of crosses going across the face that if he was in the right position he would have got more goals.


“He was probably waiting outside the box a bit too long, or maybe sometimes getting to the near post too early.


“But if he had all of that already then he wouldn’t be playing for us.


“His deliveries are good from set plays, he can go past people as if they are not there, and he can score goals.


“You have got to fit him into the team tactically when you are playing against a team who slips the ball through the middle of you.


“And with two wide players we had to make sure we didn’t struggle against that.


“But he is a very dangerous player and got us a great point.”
