Since being made club captain, Jody Craddock has had his fair share of ups and downs.

From early season goalscoring hero to benched bit par of late,his season has been one of extremes.

One constant has been his belief that the current squad could mount a serious challenge on promotion, even if many outside the club didn’t.

So the current league position has hardly come as a surprise to him.

‘We’ve always been capable of a good run and we’re glad that it’s come at a good time to put us near the top six.’ he said earlier this week.

‘That’s where we deserve to be from the way we’ve played all season so it’s put us in a good position for the run-in.’ he added

After recovering from a niggling Achilles injury, his appearances in old gold and black have been restricted to cameo’s from the bench, which doesn’t always sit well with him.

‘Sitting on the subs’ bench I’m more anxious. I get nervous and it’s terrible,’

‘But as soon as I come on as a sub and set foot on that pitch it all goes away and it’s as if I’ve always been there.’

With Wolves tight defensive record slipping away from them, and having conceded six goals in their last 4 matches, perhaps now might be a good time to see captain Craddock back in the starting line up.
