Wolves legend Bull confident of staying up

Wolves legend Steve Bull is convinced they can beat the drop this season.

Bull, who netted a record 306 goals during his 13 years at the club from 1986-99, accepts inconsistency has been a feature of Wolves' campaign so far but feels the win over Spurs - as well as the plucky goalless draw with Liverpool at Molineux last month - proves they have the quality and fight to keep their heads above water.

"I think Wolves can beat the drop because I think the bottom half of the Premier League is very poor," said Bull, speaking at the launch of the Wolves Accumulator, an online fantasy betting game in conjunction with sportingbet.com.

"There's quite a lot of teams down there like Hull, Burnley, Wigan, Portsmouth, West Ham and Bolton which we're well capable of beating so if we can finish above that group then I'll be very happy.

"This season they've been pulling some great results out of the hat but then often falling flat on their face in the next game, so that needs to improve.

"The home games are crucial for survival but obviously when you see a run of games against Liverpool, Tottenham, Chelsea and Manchester United then you wonder if you'll get any points from them.

"I would have been happy with two but we've got four already and beating Tottenham will stand us in good stead to face Chelsea at the weekend."
