We've Got To Do Berra!

Defender calls for killer instinct

Christophe Berra is confident Wolves are going to benefit from a changed style of play provided they can kill teams off when they get the opportunity.

Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Charlton was Wolves’ second successive home draw, and saw them once again let slip a lead just as in the previous two Molineux fixtures against Crystal Palace and Bolton.

The defender however believes the team are still coming to terms with a more possession-based style which will ultimately pave the way to success.

“It was a disappointing afternoon for us because we should be winning games like that,” he said.

“We were so comfortable in the first half and had a lot of the ball and got our goal.

“In the second half they had nothing to lose and closed us down and we didn’t play as well.

“We really have got to kill teams off when we get the chance.

“Being ahead 1-0 is always a dodgy lead and they had a chances mainly on the counter attack and then got one from a cross which flashed across the box before the shot came off the post.

“Before that we had a couple of chances to kill the game off and if it had gone to 2-0 then we’d probably have done enough.

“It is a difficult league and we have had three difficult games in a week.

“Charlton have just come up and were coming to Molineux trying to make it difficult for us and stop us creating chances.

“We had to break them down and had done that but from there we needed to push on and get a second goal.

“It is still a work in progress and the signs are positive in that we are playing better and more attractive football as seen with the build-up before Sako’s goal.”

There was frustration from the stands as Wolves failed to register a first home win in three, but Berra shared the views of boss Ståle Solbakken that such feelings were perfectly understandable.

And he says the players are keen to ensure they remain among the npower Championship front-runners heading into another busy spell of games.

“I can understand the fans’ frustrations but I think it is going to come good in time,” he added.

“We are a big club with big expectations and want to be up towards the top end of the table.

“It is a marathon not a sprint and there is a long way to go.

“We have to keep on picking up points but need to turn these draws into victories.”
