Jones: In need of points
David Jones has called on his Wolves team-mates to bare their teeth and start grinding out results.
Mick McCarthy's men have hit a serious slump of late, with four consecutive defeats leaving them second from bottom in the table.
Their Premier League status is now on the line, with it imperative that points are collected sooner rather than later.
Midfield ace Jones accepts as much and feels it is time for those charged with the task of producing performances to 'step up to the plate'.
"I think our focus now has switched to just getting a result," he told the club's official website.
"We've got to get a result whatever it takes. We're not interested in individuals playing well, it's about getting a result.
"Obviously it's always easier to get a result if you're playing well but that's not as important now.
"When things aren't going well you've got to try and make it happen in terms of getting a result.
"That's when you need people to step up to the plate and score a goal out of nothing or make a chance count."
One man who is unable to aid the cause at present is club captain Karl Henry, who is currently sidelined through injury.
Jones admits his midfield partner is a big miss for McCarthy's men, but has called on someone else to fill the breach and help turn the club's fortunes around.
He added: "I think we miss Henry whether we win, lose or draw a game. He's a big player for us.
"Someone has got to fill his shoes and do the job he does for the team but we have got good strength in depth to be able to cope with injuries.
"We need to make sure we all play to the best of our ability and really go for it whilst also cutting out the mistakes and putting the ball in the back of the net.
"It's not good enough to play well and create chances, we've got to put them away and we've got to expect more of ourselves.
"I'm asking those kind of questions of myself and I'm sure all the other lads are as well. We're all itching to put things right."
