Whittingham ready for Wolves challenge

Last updated : 30 October 2008 By Michael Morris
Wolves will definately be top of the Championship when the game kicks off at 5:20pm on Saturday. 2nd placed Birmingham do not play until Monday. Cardiff though could be caught by upto 4 teams that kick off at 3pm. A City win would guarantee getting 3rd place back and would close the gap significantly on Wolves and Birmingham.

And it's a win that the team are going for. One of the goalscorers against Blackpool, Peter Whittingham, has told of how pumped up he and his team-mates are

"We are buzzing. The games are coming thick and fast," he said.

"We can't wait. Nobody is worried about being tired - it's Wolves next and they have goals in them.

"But we are not scared of anybody. We are in this together. Wolves at home is huge - and we're ready for the challenge."

Boss Dave Jones has commented on the strength of team spirit in the camp.

"There is a great belief among the boys - and a great work ethic," said Jones. "They drive each other on. They don't accept sloppiness - and they'll have a go at each other to make their point.

"And they will take it from each other. Team spirit is key - and it could scarcely be better.

"The players believe they can get better still. We are always working to improve - and there is no reason that cannot be achieved."

Wolves are one of the previous teams Jones has managed. In 2003, just 24 hours after Cardiff were promoted at the Millennium Stadium Jones took Wolves to the Premier League by beating Sheff Utd in the play off final.
