Luka out for revenge!

Luka Modric is aiming to turn the tables on Wolves at Molineux tonight.

The midfielder made his long-awaited return from injury against Wolves at the Lane back in December - but it wasn't a comeback to remember as Mick McCarthy's men scored early and held on for a surprise 1-0 win.

We now travel to the Black Country with both sides needing the points. For us, it's about fighting for a place in the Barclays Premier League's top four - for Wolves, it's all about survival.

"It will be a hard game but if we want to finish fourth, we have to win games like this," insisted straight-talking Luka. "They beat us at home and I hope we will now win at their place.

"They work hard defensively, they are a good team and at White Hart Lane they scored in the third minute and defended it well.

"We had some chances that we didn't score and maybe they deserved to win that day. It will be tough at Molineux, but we go there to win."

Even though he's expecting another tough assignment on the road, Luka feels the extra space often opened up by the home team looking to go forward will work in our favour.

"We are a team that likes to play football, to pass the ball and when we do that, we can beat anyone," he said. "We have more space away from home. When we play at home, teams come and stay defensive. Away, we have more space and can create chances."
