Ward wants to control destiny

BY foxsports • May 12, 2011

Wolves climbed out of the relegation zone for the first time in nearly three months courtesy of Sunday's 3-1 win over West Brom at Molineux. Now victory at Sunderland on Saturday and at home to Blackburn in the final game means they will stay up no matter what their rivals do. Ward said: "I think the last two weeks we've played after everyone else (on Sunday) and known if we'd won, it would have taken us out of the bottom three. "Thankfully we did that on Sunday and we've put the situation back in our own hands. "If we can pick up results, we won't have to worry about anyone else. "We want to be in a position, where if we win, it doesn't matter what anyone else does. "We've got into that position and hopefully we can capitalise on that." Ward, who is currently operating as a striker, believes Wolves win over the Baggies has dragged Birmingham back into the relegation equation. He said: "I suppose we have brought Birmingham into it. From our point of view, it is about ourselves. "But bringing other teams back into it makes it a five-horse rather than a four-horse race." Ward feels the return to full fitness of Stephen Hunt has given Wolves a timely lift and he set up the first two goals against Albion. He said: "Hunty was like a Duracell battery against Albion. He was let off his leash but that was what Hunty is all about. "He's a fantastic footballer and his work ethic and enthusiasm is unbelievable, but he also has great quality. "He put in two great balls for the first two goals. It's nice to see him back and he justified his selection."
