Manager Dean Saunders today set Wolves the target of five more wins to beat the drop.
Boss Saunders takes his fourth-from-bottom side to resurgent Nottingham Forest tomorrow to start a 10-match run-in.
He's determined that Tuesday’s 2-0 win at Millwall is just the start of a long-awaited revival after 13 games without a victory.
“We need four or five wins really,” said Saunders. “I’m concerned that if we think we have cracked it, we’ll be back to square one.
“We’re still in it – a couple of teams below us have a game in hand so I have got to emphasise to the players that it’s just the start and we need four or five more to get us in a decent position.
“But the three points against Millwall make the draw against Watford a good point.”
Twelve-goal top scorer Sylvan Ebanks-Blake is set to be fit after his match-winning heroics in midweek despite groin, back and hamstring problems.
“Sylvan’s OK – he had a groin problem and I wasn’t going to play him, but around 4pm he said ‘I’ll be alright’ so I played him and he got through,” said Saunders.
“If he hadn’t made it through the game, there was a chance he’d have been out for two or three weeks.
“But he’s the difference between us losing, drawing and winning. If Sylvan can do what he did on Tuesday and if we can stay solid at the back, he will win us games.”
Asked if he thought Ebanks-Blake would continue to play through his niggles, Saunders said: “I don’t know – he’s had a problem with his hamstring and back so we’ve had to nurse him through training.”
The loan window closes on March 28 and Saunders still hasn’t given up hope of signing a striker.
“We’ve failed on a number of occasions,” he said.
“There aren’t many players available, but once the Premier League teams get safe, they’ll start thinking ‘we’ll let a few go and play now’ so I’m knocking on that door as well.
“We’d certainly have to find someone better than Sylvan, which is difficult because I don’t know anyone letting a goalscorer go.”
