Wolves' Ward Wants Reds Repeat:

Wolves players celebrate Stephen Ward's historic Anfield winner three weeks ago
         Wolves Ireland international Stephen Ward says it's time for the club to push away from the bottom of the Premier League Table. No club in England has more Irish players than Wolves (with a total of nine Emerald Isle natives in the squad - not including management) and it's definitely the time of the season that a club needs to be making a move up the table, so as to avoid being at the wrong end of the table when the final few games come around. Wolves have played better this season - though with less reward than last season.
        Anfield hero Stephen Ward is hoping Wolves can produce a repeat performance at Molineux tomorrow - but expects the Reds (Liverpool) to have been buoyed by Kenny Dalglish's arrival.

           Ward, who notched the winner as Wolves recorded an historic success just over three weeks ago, is more likely to feature further back in defence tomorrow as Liverpool visit for the return (12.45pm kick off).
         And while expecting an improved performance from Liverpool, Ward is also confident that Wolves are in good nick themselves in the wake of recent performances.

"To have one of their greatest players in the manager's seat at the moment will definitely galvanise the Liverpool players," said Ward.

 "But we're as confident as we've been all season.

"The way we're playing, we don't fear anyone.

"You look at how well we played at Manchester City against a team worth multi-millions of pounds.

 "We were bitterly disappointed not to get something from a really positive performance. Off the back of how we've been playing and the result in the FA Cup, I think we have a great chance. It will be the same tomorrow - we'll respect Liverpool because of the club and the team they are, but we'll be ready to kick on and get three points.

 "We feel this game is a really good chance to get a result.
"The highlight for me:" Ward nets Wolves' winner over Reds

"For me scoring at Liverpool was the highlight and hopefully I'll get a few more like it in my career.

 "That was an important win for us and hopefully we can turn them over here again."

"On the night we were outstanding and it gives us confidence to hopefully beat them here on our own patch.

"Hopefully we can make it as tough for them as we did up there."

"Last year when we played against the top four, I think there was probably a bit more of a gulf between us and them.

"But this season we've shown we're well capable of doing well against the big guns."

Wolves remain in the bottom three of the Barclays Premier League heading into the game tomorrow.

But Ward remains confident that won't be the case come the end of the season.

"We always have a belief in ourselves that we can get out of this," he added.

"The experience of being in and around it last season and playing in pressure situations when you're down there at the bottom will stand us in good stead.

"If you look at our form over the last eight games, our results have been as good as almost any."

Let's relive THAT goal again: Liverpool 0-1 WOLVES
