Wolves boss Dean Saunders today made an impassioned plea for the Molineux masses to roar the team to survival and called on the players to beat their home demons.
Supporters have been extremely loyal and patient despite the club’s alarming decline as they face a second successive relegation.
Saturday’s visit of basement side Bristol City offers real hope of building on a record of one win in 15 games, while also being a potential ‘tipping point’ in their season.
And Saunders called on the fans to put their frustrations to one side as Wolves face four home games in their next six.
“In the next four home games, we need everyone pulling together and all the supporters behind us because we’ve got the support that can make a difference,” said the boss.
“If you go to Wolves and get a point it should be a good result. Our players have to stand up and use their mental strength to do what they’re good at, no matter what the circumstances, and we’ll get the right results.”
Asked if some Wolves players feared playing at Molineux, Saunders admitted: “There will be some players yes, but the stronger characters come through.
“A lot of players have been here some time and they have played in big games. This is what football is all about isn’t it? It’s all there to play for.
"It’s the same pressure at the other end of the table because when you’re at the top, you’ve got to win to get into the play-offs or whatever.
“Playing under pressure is part of football – you’ve got to play when the chips are down and when the pressure is on.
“That’s when you’ve got to produce and that’s when all the top players produce.”
