Julen Lopetegui says Wolves ‘have not done anything yet’ in survival bid

Wolves boss Julen Lopetegui says his side “have not done anything yet” in their bid to beat the Premier League drop.

An impressive 1-0 win over Chelsea last weekend moved them up to 13th in the table and four points above the relegation zone.

Recent form under Lopetegui suggests Wolves should have enough to stay in the division, but the Spaniard is insistent that nothing has been achieved yet.

“We are in the middle of the work. This is my mentality,” he said on the club’s official website ahead of Saturday’s clash with Brentford.

“We haven’t done anything yet. We have the same possibility to be safe as the rest of the teams fighting with us.

“We have to put the focus only on the next match. 100 per cent on the next match. Don’t think about the other things. We are in the middle of the fight.

“It’s a challenge to be consistent and continue in a good way. Each match is a new opportunity so we prefer to be positive, look at the match as a chance, so we have to be ready to take advantage of the chance.

“The demand we’re going to have is going to be very high.

“We want to find the opposite goal and not suffer a goal. It’s not easy with the quality of the Premier League, Saturday isn’t going to be easy because we have in front a strong offensive and defensive team.

“For me, it’s (Brentford) a very complete team, set pieces, they have a lot of good things as a team, so we have to be ready.”

Wolves have no fresh injuries while Daniel Podence will be available despite his Football Association charge for an allegation of spitting towards Brennan Johnson in the recent draw at Nottingham Forest.

“At the moment we don’t have an update on injuries. We have to choose from the players that are ready,” Lopetegui added.

Ruben Neves and Jonny remain suspended.
