Molineux revisited

Wesolowski on Wolves

James Wesolowski is looking forward to revisiting Wolves as Latics prepare for tomorrow's mouth-watering Sky Bet League 1 match at Molineux.

Latics' midfield man (pictured) has previously enjoyed playing at Wolves while with Leicester.

Wesolowski said: "It is a really nice stadium and you go there looking to play football because the pitch is in such beautiful condition.

"It is a great opportunity for us to keep our mini run going and try to extend it into a longer one. It is a very important game as it gives us the chance to move up the league and we are really looking forward to it."

Wesolowski added Wolves away was one of the first games he looked for when the fixtures were released.

And he believes Latics will give a good account of themselves at Wolves.

He explained: "Since I have been here and when we have gone away to the bigger teams, we have been resilient, got stuck in and often come away with positive results.

"We will go out at Wolves not fearing anything as we are in a good vein of form and the boys are confident both in training and in games.

"We know we have the ability in the squad - it's just transferring it on to the pitch."

Wesolowski added it is "crazy" how Wolves were playing in the Premier League less than 18 months ago.

He said: "That's the way football is and we have seen elsewhere how clubs can decline rapidly.

"Once you start losing, it can become a habit and that is what happens when a team suffers a double relegation.

"Likewise, when a team enjoys a double promotion, they get into a habit of winning."

Wesolowski is friends with a number of Wolves players including Richard Stearman.

He continued: "My mates at Wolves have told me they are playing a different style and grinding out positive results.

"Sometimes it isn't attractive and the prettiest, but they know how to win and get three points which is the most important thing if you want to get promotion.

"That is something we can learn from as we showed on Saturday when we dug out our win against Carlisle."

Wesolowski added that is probably why Wolves appointed Kenny Jackett in the summer because of his experience and the fact he knows how to get out of League 1.

He is also looking forward to playing against the likes of Kevin Doyle, Bakary Sako and Leigh Griffiths who provide Wolves with considerable firepower.

Wesolowski explained it must be a culture shock: "Wolves are still getting parachute payments and still have some of their big hitters.

"It is a different style for them and many ways tougher at this level when it can be mayhem.

"The higher you go the more time you get on the ball. You get extra time, but need to show more quality on the ball.

"Players with quality sometimes get pushed aside at this level. The ones who can mix those two things are the ones who will shone in this league."
