"We've been here many times before in terms of having to bounce back and that's what we'll do."

Quotes of the week

Mick McCarthy's side suffered a 3-0 loss at Blackburn on Saturday to keep them second-bottom of the Premier League with just 12 points from 16 games.

But Scotland defender Berra is adamant Wolves will recover in time for the visit of their midlands rivals.

"We will keep on fighting as we did on Saturday when we kept going and the fans could see that," Berra told the Birmingham Mail.

"We've been here many times before in terms of having to bounce back and that's what we'll do."

He added: "There are two big derby games coming up and we know Birmingham and West Brom are two good teams with good players.

"Birmingham is first and we're back at home and will definitely be up for it. We're not going to lose any confidence from this result. We didn't do enough but there are still plenty of points to play for."


Berra feels the errors made by his side at Ewood Park led to their downfall against Rovers.

"It was very disappointing. Blackburn are good at set pieces and score a lot of goals from dead ball situations," he said.

"And they punished us with two of them. You have to defend set pieces as a team and we didn't do that.

"We've had chances in the game but again we can't keep saying that. We have to learn from it.

"It is a hard place to come and they make you by putting a lot of balls into the box.

"We dealt with the majority of them but when we didn't we were punished. In the second half we went 4-4-2 and it was a more open game with both teams having chances but they were the team who got the goals in the game."
