Stearman eyes success

Richard Stearman admits winning promotion this season would rank right up there with the achievement of 2008/09.

But he is remaining focused purely on taking the remaining six games as they come to ensure he can add a second Wolves’ promotion to his Molineux CV.

Stearman has been a key figure in Wolves’ impressive season so far, and is determined to ensure the team see the job through having worked themselves into such a promising position.

“We’re not there yet but if and when it happens, it would be a particular career highlight for me personally,” he said.

“I went up last time with the club a few years back and if we do it again, it would rank right up there for me.

“The end is in sight certainly but there are a few games left and we’ve got to pick up more points because we’re not quite there yet.

“We’re going to do our best to pick up three points tomorrow to take another big step towards where we want to be.

“We had a lot of games in March but we’ve really enjoyed it.

“If you ask any player, they want to be out there playing as opposed to training.

“We’ve got our preparation and recovery right and you can see in the performances and the points we keep picking up that it’s do-able.”

Stearman has enjoyed a considerable impact as part of a successful Wolves defence which has pretty much been centred around six players through the season.

“I’ve been very pleased with the way I’ve played and I’m very proud to be part of a defence that’s performed so well,” he said.

“It’s not just myself, but the boys alongside me have done fantastically well as well.

“We lost Matt Doherty who has been a big part of it as well, certainly at the start of the season, as has Aaron McCarey keeping a few clean sheets as well.

“But in the main it’s been the same five at the back and you can see how we play together and the stats we’ve produced have shown how well we’ve done defensively.

“We’re just trying to do our bit at the back and providing the ball for the boys going forwards to do their thing.”
