In-form striker Björn Sigurdarson believes it’s time for the Wolves players to show what they are made of against Millwall tonight (7.45pm).
Sigurdarson smashed home his first Molineux goal to open the scoring against Nottingham Forest on Saturday, but Wolves were again overhauled and finished up on the wrong end of a 2-1 scoreline and nursing an eighth successive game without success.
The Icelandic striker is hoping players and fans can stay together for this evening’s crucial clash with the Lions, knowing it’s up to the team to try and set the agenda.
“I just think we need one win to get us going again,” he says.
“With a positive result we can stick our chests out and feel better about ourselves.
“I know it will be difficult for everyone tonight because fans are disappointed but we need everyone to support us and push in the same direction.
“We will certainly be doing our best and we have to show everyone that we can do this and we have what it takes to do well in this league.
“Millwall have shown what you can do if you get on a good run.
“We just need that confidence and to believe in ourselves and then anything is possible.
“Individually I feel great now and ready for this league.
“But the most important thing is that the team pick up results.
“I have enjoyed playing at Molineux hearing the fans screaming and yelling and to get my first goal there was great.
“But we need to start winning our home matches as soon as possible.”
Sigurdarson admits it was a hugely disappointing second half against Forest, particularly as Wolves had perhaps created enough openings in the first half to have gone in ahead.
And ultimately his first goal on home soil was to prove nothing more than a consolation.
“I was delighted to get my goal on Saturday,” he said.
“The chance came as something of a surprise the way it came about but when I saw the ball in the back of the net it was the best feeling in the world.
“It was a good goal but the more important was that we lost the game.
“We’d done alright in the first half and could have scored again but once they went in front in the second half it seemed to get difficult.
“We still had plenty of minutes after that to get the goal back but we just couldn’t do it.
“We need to keep our heads up and make sure we do our best in the next game tonight.”
