Liverpool skipper Gerrard admits relief after seeing off spirited Wolves

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard was relieved to see off Wolves 2-0 yesterday at Anfield. Second-half goals from Gerrard and Yossi Benayoun gave nervy Liverpool a victory that was only secured once Wolves had been reduced to 10 men.

Gerrard said: "Wolves come here organised, they were always going to be difficult to beat.

"It was just all about waiting for that breakthrough. We were nervous at times, the crowd were getting on our backs at times. But we knew if we had the belief it would come, and it did.

"When you're not getting the results you expect it's always going to affect confidence.

"But we want to put it right. The players are hurting at the moment. If we keep showing the attitude we did today we'll move up to where we want to be."
