Midfielder pleased to be back on scoresheet
George Saville believes Wolves owe the fans a strong finish to the season as they prepare for the final six games aiming to climb the Sky Bet Championship table.
Fifteen points off the top six – and fifteen points above the relegation one – means there is only pride and places to play for, starting this Saturday with the visit of Blackburn Rovers to Molineux (3pm).
Andl after Tuesday’s 2-1 victory, Saville says there should be more of the second half performance at MK Dons than the first to try and ensure a strong finish.
“It’s been a while since we won away and it’s been hard for us but we’ve picked up some good points at places like Burnley,” said Saville.
“But it is good to get another win away from home and from a good team performance as well.
“We want to finish the season strongly and we owe the fans that as well.
“They are supporting us well and away from home there was another good following on Tuesday night which is great.
“We need to finish the season strongly for everyone involved.
“We don’t want to let it drift to an end and this away win is a good marker to take into Saturday’s home game with Blackburn.
“It was a big win for us at MK Dons - a good three points away from home, and I’m buzzing for the boys.
“And it was a good response from half time onwards.
“We started off sloppy and were our own worst enemies in the first half.
“But then we did really well in the second half and got two good goals.
“We knew at half time we just had to pick up the tempo really as we hadn’t matched theirs.
“I wouldn’t say we were particularly bad but we certainly weren’t good.
“In the second half we upped the tempo and when we did that I don’t think they could live with us.
“That sort of tempo is the minimum we should be looking for really – we need to perform like that all the time.
“We have had good performances but the first half was flat, and we know that if we play well with a good tempo the results will come.”
Saville’s header – his third goal in seven games – levelled matters for Wolves on Tuesday before Jack Price popped up with the winner shortly afterwards.
“I was delighted to get another goal,” he added.
“It is lovely to be scoring goals but as always the main thing is the team getting three points.
“A couple of headers now as well – that’s just the way it is!
“I was moved onto wide left in the second half and Lenny (James Henry) swung the cross in and I helped myself to it!”
