Midfielder keeping fingers crossed for this weekend
Billy Knott is keeping his fingers crossed he will be selected to start against Carlisle United this weekend after he impressed at Molineux on Saturday.
He was sacrificed when the manager made a triple substitution in a change of tactics, but the midfielder has no complaints and hopes he has done enough to impress Micky Adams.
He said: “I think we were good in the first half and if we had taken our chances we could have gone in at half time in front, but it is one of those games, they are a massive team and I think they will go up this year, they are a very good team.
£Tom said it took a little bobble and it took a little bit off it – he saw the ‘keeper scrambling and he thought he had to put a bit behind it, but it took a bobble and came off his ankle and went over.
“I think at any other time Tom would have taken that chance, but he didn’t and it hasn’t gone our way this week, but hopefully we can get back on the road again now and go for three big points next week.
“It’s a big game next week, but hopefully the fans who were behind us at Wolves – they were quality – will all be behind us next week against Carlisle.
“Griff had an injury unfortunately, but it gave me a chance to start and I took it, but now we will have to see what the gaffer does with the team next week and if I get in I will give a hundred per cent.
“I felt I did that on Saturday, though maybe I should have done a bit more going forward, but I felt I did okay over all.
”Next week is a massive game. We have been going through a bit of a sticky patch, but if we can get three points next week and the fans stick with us we will push on again.
“But obviously we need one hundred per cent work-rate first and then get our class to show through.
“Every season a team has a little run at the end of the season and hopefully that will be us, but we have got to grind out results first and then you start showing your flair and enjoying it.”
