The pressure is on Wolverhampton Wanderers to pull away from the relegation zone in the Championship.
This season is no longer about attempting to bounce back to the Premier League at the first attempt, this is about survival, fighting off the chance of back-to-back relegations and preparing to start again next season.
After years of continuity and stability, Molineux has become rather unsettled over the past year.
Mick McCarthy was in the hot seat for 5 years and 207 days, but since his sacking on February 13th 2012, instability has shone through.
We had the managerial hunt farce, which resulted in numerous managers rejecting the position before we settled on Terry Connor, mainly because it appeared no-one wanted the job.
13 games passed and relegation from the Premier League followed without a single victory.
Then Ståle Solbakken came and went after just 30 games and now it’s Dean Saunders go.
After three games he’s still searching for a victory and Wolves now sit 7 points ahead of the relegation zone, with four of six teams below us all holding a game in hand.
‘We have got to get away from the bottom. We have to get a couple of wins.
‘It is a difficult job because it is a massive club and no-one expects the club to be where it is.’ Saunders told Sky Sports.
He continued: ‘Every game we are expected to win and the pressure is on. Our players have to show the mental strength to walk through disappointment.
‘There are more downs than ups in football and the top players come back from the downs.
