Hoddle is looking to Wolves’ 82nd minute equaliser against Brighton to be the turning point for their poor start to the season.

He said after the game that Cameron and Seol changed the game:

‘We showed a lot of character to come back away from home. Those two guys changed things around for us when they came on. They took us to another level. We needed more energy in midfield and I asked them to go on and affect the game in a positive way. It’s my job to pick players when they are ripe and Seol played really positively. And Cams got us the goal. That goal summed up the way things have been going for us – coming off the keeper’s head then the post and the bar. But tonight we put it away and maybe that’s going to be a turning point for us. It’s also good to finally see a goal come from midfield.’

Michael Oakes had to miss the game with an ankle injury, so Postma made his debut, Hoddle sounds like he liked what he saw!

‘Stefan has also been suffering from an ankle problem but we just had to hope he would be ok. We are down to the barest knuckle. Stefan will be disappointed with the goal but he made some crucial saves for us tonight.’
