Wolves to feature on Soccer AM and other TV this weekend

16 04 2010

Wolves will take on the Crossbar Challenge on Soccer AM this Saturday morning.

Last year, Wolves set an all time Soccer AM record of hitting the bar four times. Christophe Berra, Matt Hill, George Friend and Graham Stack were the ones to hit the woodwork and you can the video below.

Expect to see how they did at around 11.45am on Sky Sports One.

Elsewhere, a feature with captain Karl Henry will be on Barclays Premier League World tonight from 7.00pm on Sky Sports One.

Finally, a piece with Matt Jarvis is set to be screened on Gillette Soccer Saturday tomorrow lunchtime. Expect it to be on between 12.30pm and 3pm on Sky Sports one and Sky Sports News.

*There are still a few restricted view tickets available for tomorrow’s trip to Fulham.


Kevin Foley enjoying his new role

30 03 2010

Foley has made 106 appearances for Wolves since moving from Luton Town in 2007.

Wolves defender come winger Kevin Foley is enjoying playing further up the field and feels he is now getting used to the position he is being deployed in due to Michael Kightly’s long-standing injury.

Foley has played in each of Wolves’ last 19 league games and is improving in his midfield role week by week.

He said: “The gaffer has said to me last couple of games try to stay up there – don’t be as honest trying to get back as a second full back because we need to break at times. In the last couple of games I’ve found myself supporting Kevin Doyle a bit more, but I think there was a lot of getting used to the position.”

It has now got the point where Foles is practicing his shooting in the warm up; something he never thought would be happening this season. He has been unlucky in recent weeks after hitting the woodwork at both Bolton and West Ham.

Foley added: “I find myself practising before games – you never thought I’d be doing that last season. It’s something you’ve got to work on and when you get the chances you’ve got to be able to take them. I said to myself ‘third time lucky’ when I take a shot because I’ve hit the post twice, so next time hopefully it creeps in rather than coming out.”

My verdict: Foley is starting to pick up form in his new position and is starting to bring others into play a little more. It is disapointing that our player of the year from 08/09 is playing out of position but hopefully he can revert to his favoured right back slot next season.

*Wolves fans are set to appear on Soccer AM this Saturday ahead of the team’s trip to Arsenal later that day. One of the fans, Ryan Leister, can’t wait to take his seat in the Luther Blissett stand. He told Wffs: “I cant wait but Im not excited as my mate Reeg who actually threw up when I told him the news, hopefully we’ll do our club proud.”

* Dave Edwards is to step up his comeback with another reserve outing tonight. Sylvan Ebanks-Blake was also due to play but had to withdraw due to illness

* Home shirts are now only £10 at Wolves’ official club stores at Molineux and in Dudley Street.
