Dean Saunders: Looking to steer Wolves clear of trouble

It has been a season to forget for those at Molineux, with relegation from the Premier League followed by a Championship survival scrap.

Things have improved marginally of late, with three wins in four carrying the club out of the bottom three.

Saunders says morale in his camp has improved and he believes he has enough talent at his disposal to counter the loss of six key men to season-ending knocks.

He told Sky Sports: "I've enjoyed the last three weeks - we have started winning games.

"When you aren't getting the results, it's agony. You just have to keep working away, keep believing. I have got to keep believing in what I'm doing and what I'm saying to the players is right. They have got to keep believing what I'm telling them is right and keep believing that they are good players.

"That's been the difference in recent weeks. We have been winning games and the belief comes back. We have got a lot of players playing well.

"We have had some freak injuries, which haven't helped, but I think we have got a squad good enough to cope."

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
