Wolves midfielder Michael McIndoe has been one of the reasons Wolves have confounded their critics, and forced their way into a play off semi final against rivals West Brom.

Leading the league in assists, his contribution has often been overlooked when fans look for pointers to Mick McCarthy’s young squads success.

Three more all star performances from the one time wayward winger and Wolves could find themselves in the biggest match of the club’s history in the new national stadium, but he isnt looking that far ahead just yet, as he explained to the club’s official site.

‘If we can beat two teams over three games, the prize is promotion. We’re not really looking at Wembley. That may be fantastic for the day but if you lose, it’s a waste of time.’

Three games, 270 minutes of tense, passionate football are all that stand between Wolves and the promised land, a situation the club has found itself in many times before.

Though only Matt Murray, was there last time around, the true meaning of a knockout semi final isn’t lost on any of the current squad, least of all McIndoe.

‘It’s a cup atmosphere now and league form goes out of the window, although it’s nice to go into the games on a good run.’

Wolves recent form suggests Albion are more likely to meet the team that beat them 1-0 at Molineux last time around, than the one that capitulated 3-0 in the previous meeting.

Which means an in form Michael McIndoe and a headache for Tony Mowbray.
