Wolves and Wigan went into the game knowing that despite it being November, this was a massive six-pointer.
Whether we look back on the game in May and think the same is pretty irrelevent, on Sunday, this game was huge.
A win and the side storms up the table, a defeat and we plummet to bottom of the Premier League with relgation an almost certainty.
There didn’t appear to be any middle ground in the build up, so thankfully for Mick the result was a welcome one as we went on to condemn Wigan to a 3-1 defeat.
‘It all looks different with one win and we knew that would be the case.’ our Mick told the BBC.
He added: ‘But it was much needed. We can’t keep going on saying we did alright. You’ve got to win a game and today was the one we needed to win against Wigan.
‘What pleased me most was the reaction after taking the lead and then conceding a penalty.
‘It was the great togetherness of the place. The crowd were brilliant. We conceded the penalty and they got the lads going again.’
Vital Wolves Comment: With a two week break before the next Premier League game, the pressure could have really mounted on the squad if we had failed to win this game.
Thankfully we took the three points, stormed up the table to the dizzy heights of 13th and eased the growing unease around Molineux for a while.
But with difficult away trips to Everton and Chelsea, it probably will not be long until the pressure is back on.
