Vital win delights Saunders

Wolves boss Dean Saunders was delighted with his battling team

after securing a morale-boosting 3-2 win against Middlesbrough.

Kevin Doyle’s header in the 70th minute settled a pulsating

encounter with the hosts twice throwing away the lead.

The result left Wolves still in the drop zone but level on

points with Peterborough one place above.

“The game was unbelievable to watch for a neutral,” said

Saunders. “Both teams could have scored 10. We went for it. We had

to win and you are standing on the side there hoping we can take

the chances.

“If we keep winning I think the way other results are going we

have a chance of getting in the play-offs. Everyone has got

momentum going now and we had to win.

“If we can win again at Birmingham City on Monday we could be

just four points away from 10th spot.”

Birmingham will have had an extra 24 hours to prepare for that

contest after

beating Crystal Palace 4-0 on Friday night.

“That’s all wrong,” Saunders added. “They played on Friday and

it is not fair to have an extra day when it is such a short

turnover. So I have got some crucial selection decisions ahead of

me now.”
