Wolves ace ignoring Whites lowly position

WOLVES midfielder David Edwards is gearing up for tonight’s visit of Wanderers admitting he is surprised with the Whites’ poor start to the Championship campaign.

While the 3-2 home win against Bristol City was only a fourth win of the campaign for the men from the Reebok, the side that was relegated from the Premier league alongside them last season sit fifth despite a weekend defeat at Huddersfield.

Edwards hopes the Molineux outfit, who have lost just once in five home games to Dougie Freedman’s Crystal Palace last time out, can bounce back from that 2-1 reverse and halt Wanderers’ mini-revival in the process.

The Wales international said: “Bolton will be strong, looking at their team sheet.

“It’s such a strong team that I really can’t believe they haven’t started better.

“I know a few of the lads from their team and they’ve definitely got enough to be at the top end of the league, so it’ll be a tough test for us. They’ll be out to impress whoever’s watching and potential managers may be at the game, so they’ll be trying to impress.

“As for us, the gaffer has said now we just have to forget about Huddersfield and everything’s geared towards tonight. We want to make Molineux a fortress this year and it’s going to be games like Tuesday night that we need to win to make that happen.”
