Wolves dropped back into the npower Championship relegation places after Obika's 90th-minute strike earned the in-form Addicks a 2-1 home victory.

Kevin Doyle had headed in an equaliser after Dorian Dervite had opened the scoring for the hosts but Wolves were unable to hang on for a draw.

"Football is cruel isn't it?" Saunders said.

"Both their goals are scrambled. It was not our day.

"Karl Henry hits a 35-yarder, which hits the underside of the bar and comes out. If it is your day that goes in.

"The first goal is a miskicked corner, which he scuffs along the floor. Kevin Doyle has tried to clear it but it is like a low ball in crickets and he miss hits it.

"The second goal is even more unlucky in the 90th minute when it hits Jack Robinson in the face and squirts out to their player when it could have gone anywhere."

However, Saunders remains confident that Wolves can stay up.

He said: "All is not lost. Other results have kept us in it. All that bad luck can be reversed. The players can do it. We have dug results out before.

"This was a kick in the teeth and is hard to swallow but it is football you have to pick yourself up off the floor."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
