Wolves midfielder Stephen Hunt calls for focus ahead of final games

The former Reading midfielder believes that Wolves must put their crucial 1-0 victory over Hull behind them and focus on the final three fixtures in order to secure safety
Wolves midfielder Stephen Hunt has called for focus as the West Midlands club continues its fight against relegation from the Championship.

A goal from Kevin Doyle granted Wolves a crucial victory over promotion-chasing Hull City at Molineux on Tuesday, April 16, but Hunt has urged his team mates to move on to the next game against Charlton Athletic on Saturday April 20.

"There are three games to go now - we've got ourselves out of trouble before and now we're going to have to do it again," he told the club's official website.

"We've just got to move on to Charlton now, get a positive result there and bring it back to our place with safety in mind."

The 31-year-old also praised his compatriot Doyle after the Republic of Ireland international scored the winning goal against Hull, noting that the striker scored with his weaker foot.

"I know how Kevin Doyle plays and I know what he wants," he said. "Bjorn [Sigurdarson]'s slipped him in early and even though it's his weaker foot, he's put his head down and struck through it."

Meanwhile, Hunt also revealed that he would like to remain at Molineux and that he is hoping to earn a new deal with the club.

He said: "I'd like to stay, I'm settled here, so hopefully I can help them stay up then sit down and talk about a new deal."

Wolves take on Charlton Athletic in the Championship at The Valley on Saturday, April 20. Kick off 15:00 BST.
