Zubar calls for Wolves fight

Mick McCarthy’s side twice came from behind in mid-week to draw 2-2

with the Canaries at Molineux. Right-back Zubar, who has just

returned to the side after a lengthy injury lay-off, scored the

second goal to cement the comeback just when Wolves were facing a

second home setback in succession. Now they face a visit tomorrow

afternoon to revitalised Arsenal who are back in the hunt for a

Champions League spot. Zubar said: “There won’t be any pressure on

us against Arsenal and we just have to see what we can do. “There’s

no reason why we can’t play well there and see if we can pick

anything up. “Arsenal away is always a tough game with a big pitch

and a lovely stadium. I’m sure our fans are looking forward to

going there. “We’ve had an extra day before the game now, after it

was put back, and the players have been able to have Christmas Day

at home. “But then we will be looking to go to Arsenal with a good

mentality and to show something positive on the pitch. “The last

ten minutes against Norwich showed the determination of the team

and we’re going to need all that in the games to come.” Zubar

believes Wolves deserved more than a single point from the home

clashes with Stoke (a 2-1 defeat) and Paul Lambert’s side. He said:

“It has been a bit disappointing to take only one point from the

last two home games. “I think we deserved at least two – if not

four. We played very well at times in these last two games “We

should have scored a couple against Stoke in the first half and

then they got a free kick, which shouldn’t have happened, and a

deflection. “Then we didn’t do so well in the first half against

Norwich before having a good reaction which we needed to do at

home. “We did far better in the second half and again should have

scored a couple of goals. “But we’ve got no choice but to get on

with it because the season is very long and there are so many more

games to come.” Zubar is delighted to be back in action after

Richard Stearman’s broken wrist presented an opening. He said:

“It’s great to be back on the pitch and be part of the team.

“That’s all any player wants. I’m enjoying it. “For me it was just

great to be back and to get my match fitness to 100% “I’ve only

played five games and need more to feel a lot better.”
