Home comforts for Montpellier

Wolves manager Dean Saunders was pleased with the never-say-die

attitude of his players as they rescued a late point in a 1-1 draw

with Watford.

Wanderers remain in the relegation zone, but the Welshman is

confident they can push on to get out of trouble.

“I’m pleased we got a point. It’s St David’s Day today so I had

my daffodil on and I’ve got my Welsh socks on and I thought they

might bring us a bit of luck,” Saunders said.

“This could be a turning point for us. We scored in injury-time

and missed a lot of chances.

“When they scored from a free-kick, which I didn’t think was a

free-kick, you’re up against it because they’re a good team. You’re

chasing the game.

“When Jack Robinson missed a chance I thought it wasn’t going to

be our night. But we kept going, the three subs came on and made an

impact, we were getting to the ball first and I thought we might

have got the winner with a couple of minutes to go.”

Saunders conceded Wolves still faced a tough battle to avoid the

drop, adding: “It’s tough at the minute. We’re not in a very good

position, we’re fighting and I believe we can get out of this


“Hopefully that pushes us on now and on Tuesday night at

Millwall we can take three points.

“At the end of the day, this was a good point. The players have

showed some character, they’ve dug in, they’ve kept going till the

final whistle and I thought we deserved to win.”

The in-form La Paillade moved level on points with St Etienne in

fifth place thanks to two late second-half goals from Vitorino

Hilton and Souleymane Camara.

With just one win in seven, defeat for Rennes meant they could

find themselves as low as ninth in the Ligue 1 table come Sunday
