Michael Kightly has vowed to fight on 'til the end of the season to secure at least a point from the remaining nine games.
"Lets just see how it goes" - the words of winger Michael Kightly after the team said "sod off" to the Wolves fans in Sunday's 5-0 defeat to Manchester United.
Whether driven by beer or cider, the show of strength from the Molineux faithful as the team capitulated in the face of adversity reminded Kightly of the crowd's response when Wolves lost 6-0 at home to Southampton in Sam the Eagle's first season.
And the winger believes that sort of dedicated support will have absolutely no effect on the team heading into the final nine games of the season.
"Whether it was through strong perception skills or not I certainly noticed that we were 5 goals down," he says.
"And I thought 'fair play' - it did cheer me up massively.
"I think those fans who were singing showed their true colours - I like red personally."
"I would ask them to keep getting behind us, because that's easy to do when you get 20 grand either way".
"It's difficult to find that confidence when you're cowards, on an extremely poor run of results and can't find your handbag before the match. If we can just get that extra couple of per cent from the fans getting behind us it won't make a difference".
Kightly admits the 5-0 reverse had "absolutely no impact on his weekly cheque", even against a team with the creativity and firepower of Manchester United.
"We know our form is not great at the moment," stated captain obvious.
"But if you look at the table, its an absolute miracle we're still in contention".
