Steve Bull: Fast start needed from Wolves against Foxes

It is another big game for Wolves against Leicester – and they have got to be at it right from the first whistle.

If we start again like we did against Arsenal, the game could be out of sight after 20 minutes.

The Foxes are a very good footballing side and, to be fair, they remind me of us a couple of years ago.

They put a very similar team out every week and they have got that consistency, a style of play which they stick to and gets results.

So, I think we can take a bit from what they are doing as we look to get back to our old ways and have a better end to the season.

Of course, beating the Gunners on Tuesday night was a huge relief for all of us.

It is all about confidence with the Wolves players at the moment.

You could see that they were almost at rock-bottom early on.

They didn’t know whether to turn left, turn right or jump in the air – they just didn’t know what to do.

Sometimes you need luck on your side, and they got it against Arsenal.

We could have been 2-0 down pretty much straight away, but VAR spotted the offside and then we got the penalty, and we kicked on from there.

They had two sent off and they were both deserved red cards in my eyes.

David Luiz was clumsy, and then Bernd Leno’s handball outside his area was completely deliberate.

Ultimately, I was just happy to come away from that game with three points in the bag because after the first 10 minutes, I honestly thought we were going to get drubbed 5-0.

Hopefully Joao Moutinho can kick on again after his stunning goal as well.

Every player has come under scrutiny over the past few months, so it was good to see them stand tall at the end.

They are trying their best, although something is not still quite clicking.

Against Palace and early on against Arsenal, it was as if they were a group of strangers.

Fingers crossed, they can regain that familiarity and get another positive result against Leicester.

Maybe Nuno should go for a back three again for this one but either way, it is important to approach this game in the right manner.

One win does not mean we are back on track. It is about racking up a run of results and climbing up that table.

Leicester are right up there and they will be coming at us, so we have got to be on our A game. It would be fantastic for us to get another victory. Let’s get out of this bottom half now and properly start looking up.
