Harry on Wolves test

Harry Redknapp has no doubts that our next opponents Wolves will avoid the drop from the Premier League.

We continue our battle for a place in the top four at Molineux on Sunday while the home side scrap for survival in the top flight.

Wolves climbed out of the bottom three by virtue of goal difference after beating Blackpool 4-0 at Molineux on Saturday but dropped back into the relegation zone when West Brom grabbed a late point at Stoke on Monday.

The win against Blackpool was another fine result on home turf for Mick McCarthy’s men who still find themselves at the wrong end of the table despite beating Manchester City, Chelsea and Manchester United – making them them first team to do so in the Premier League since April, 2010 – at Molineux this term.

“I’ve said all along that I don’t think Wolves will go down, that’s been my opinion for months,” stated Harry.

“I think they are a good side and they will definitely stay up. I don’t see them as a relegation team at all.

“It’s always a difficult place to go and win. They’ve already beaten United there, City, Chelsea, so that underlines how tough it is there.

“But we have to go and pick up a result.”

Few will need reminding of defeat last time out at Blackpool but Harry hopes the team shows the resolve that has seen them overcome such setbacks all season, most recently recovering from the FA Cup loss at Fulham with four straight wins, including the famous victory against AC Milan at the San Siro.

“We’d been playing so well (before Blackpool) and everything just went wrong on the night,” he added. “We have to come back from that now.

“It’s another big week for us. Wolves and then AC Milan, that’s a massive game, one of the biggest games in the history of the club.

“We’re preparing for those games now and hopefully it will be another good week for us.”
