Wolves defender George Elokobi admits faith plays a big role in his life.

Nottingham Forest's new loanee from Wolves is a devout ­Christian and believes his faith will give Steve Cotterill's ­strugglers the edge to pull away from the relegation zone.

Before today's home date with Watford , he said: "If you say your prayers before you go to bed, you will wake up feeling very positive. I know God is on my side."
