Terry Connor is confident he has enough firepower at his disposal to see Wolves safe, with Steven Fletcher and Kevin Doyle set to lead the charge.

Wolves have been far from prolific this season, netting 30 times in 27 Premier League fixtures.

Their inability to see opposing sides off, coupled with a leaky back four, has left them languishing inside the top flight drop zone with 11 games of the campaign remaining.

Connor has been charged with the task of guiding them away from trouble, with the managerial reins having been passed his way in the wake of Mick McCarthy's departure.

He is confident he can steer a course to safety and will be looking to his key men to play their part in that quest.


That includes 10-goal top scorer Fletcher and Republic of Ireland international Doyle.

Connor said: "It's about having a group of players ready to play and, when asked to play, they give their best. I'm sure Fletcher is one of those. He has been a talisman.

"Kevin has had a lean spell this season where he hasn't played as well and hasn't played as much because of it. But, who knows, this might be his 11 games.

"Kevin had a lean spell and Fletcher had his purple patch where he was scoring goals and being important to us as a team but it might fluctuate again towards the end of the season.

"All I know is they are both key players whose goals and contributions will be important over the rest of the season."
