Hunt praises Wolves faith

BY foxsports • May 16, 2011

After slipping into the drop zone following a poor run of form, the Midlanders have picked up seven points from their last three games to escape the basement and keep hopes of preserving their top-flight status alive. Winger Hunt feels Wolves' faith will stand them in good stead as they entertain Blackburn in what is likely to be a nail-biting finale on Sunday. "We've always kept our belief, which is so important because without it we'd have gone a few weeks ago," the 29-year-old told the club's official website. "But we stuck together when times were bad and cracked on and managed to pick up a few points. "Hopefully we'll get one more performance from all of us and we'll all be flying." Wolves are currently 16th in the table and a point clear of the relegation places having secured a timely 3-1 victory at Sunderland on Saturday. Republic of Ireland international Hunt was impressed with their resilience following a testing first half that saw Stephane Sessegnon cancel out Jody Craddock's opener. "It was a difficult start and for the first 45 minutes we got pounded," he added. "They were the better side and our first goal came against the run of play. "But it was a good finish by Jody and we managed to in level at half-time. "We had to go again in the second half and thankfully we put in a good performance and won the game."
