Ronald Zubar has warned Arsenal's defence that they will face a stern examination from Kevin Doyle when Wolves visit Emirates Stadium on Saturday.

The Gunners' immediate focus will be on the first leg of their UEFA Champions quarter-final against Barcelona but they will quickly have to switch attention back to the Premier League.

Wolves have a whole week to prepare for the match and head to the capital in fine form after boosting their survival hopes with eight points from four games.

But Zubar is looking for another positive result at Arsenal and is confident Wolves can provide an attacking threat of their own.

"At the moment, we are confident after the last four games going into what we know will be a really difficult game," he told the club's official website.

"Arsenal drew against Birmingham and although they have got Barcelona first, they will be needing to win against us.

"Arsenal are a great team who play beautiful football and people like to watch them play. But I am sure we will get chances in the game as well."


Doyle has proved difficult to handle up front this season and Zubar expects the Irish striker to unsettle what could be a makeshift Arsenal back line.

Zubar has been impressed by Doyle's battling qualities and has urged the rest of the team to follow his example.

"I don't know if [William] Gallas will play because of injury and [Thomas] Vermaelen didn't play last time," said Zubar of Arsenal's defensive options.

"Whoever plays there, I am sure Kevin Doyle can cause them problems.

"He's done that to a lot of defences this season and Gallas told me last time he doesn't like playing against Kevin.

"It's because of his movement and battling and chasing.

"If we all chase like that, we have a chance and then there's always going to be free-kicks and corners."
