Kightly says Wolves will not lose their fight until seasons end

Wolves will continue fighting until the bitter end says winger Michael Kightly.

The Wolverhampton club currently sit second bottom on the Premier League table with four games remaining and Kightly has made it abundantly clear that the players will maintain their focus and fight hard for survival, starting with the visit of Birmingham City on Sunday.

"We've got four games left and they're four cup finals - and the chance to put things right starts against Birmingham on Sunday," Kightly told Express and Star.

"We have to guarantee that spirit and fighting quality even if we can't guarantee results. We're going to fight every minute to survive in this league.

"We didn't do it at Stoke (3-0 loss on Tuesday) but are determined to do it over the last four games.

"For the five seasons I've been here, the number one rule has always been to fight and battle when times are tough, even if we're not playing well.

"That didn't seem to happen against Stoke, which was disappointing.

"The way we lost just was not us - even if we end up losing we have to go down fighting.

"There's nobody in the dressing room that didn't come off that pitch absolutely gutted - we all know it wasn't acceptable."
