Irish star Kevin Foley believes in Wolves’ defence ahead of relegation dogfight

Published 19/02/2013 | 11:36

Irish defender Kevin Foley is hoping that Wolves keep up their defensive solidity tonight in a relegation six-pointer at Barnsley tonight.

Wolves produced a rare clean sheet against Derby at the weekend and Foley, who played alongside the newly-formed central defensive partnership of Kaspars Gorkss and Danny Batth at Derby, is hoping they can continue that good form at the back.

“Hopefully we can progress from the Derby game now," Foley says. "We've kept a couple of clean sheets since the gaffer arrived - it's a starting point,” he told the club website.

"We'd have obviously have liked to have taken the three points from Derby, but they've got a good home record and have been scoring freely so I think it's a point gained.

"I don't think they created many chances, and we didn't create as many as we would have liked either, but both teams were quite solid defensively and in the end 0-0 was probably a fair result."

Barnsley have been in decent form in recent weeks and have closed to within a point a place of Wolves but remain in the relegation zone.

Hopefully we can progress from the Derby game now," Foley says. "We've kept a couple of clean sheets since the gaffer arrived - it's a starting point.

"We'd have obviously have liked to have taken the three points from Derby, but they've got a good home record and have been scoring freely so I think it's a point gained.

"I don't think they created many chances, and we didn't create as many as we would have liked either, but both teams were quite solid defensively and in the end 0-0 was probably a fair result."

Foley hasn’t featured for the Republic of Ireland and has turned offers to rejoin the squad since he felt “betrayed” by Giovanni Trapattoni after he was dropped for Euro 2012 at the eleventh hour.
