Wolves defender Craddock: I didn't think I'd be playing this season

Wolves defender Jody Craddock admits he's surprised himself this season.

The former Sunderland centre-back was brought back into the team alongside Christophe Berra at Everton a fortnight ago at the expense of Michael Mancienne and has helped Wolves to three creditable draws.

"Playing games is massive for me. Before the start of the season I thought I was going to be on the side-lines, just being a back-up player,' he said. "It hasn't been the case so far.

"Mancienne is a great player. It's not about individuals, it's about having a partnership and I feel as if I have a decent partnership which I hope will help me stay in the team."
