Walter Zenga shares his thoughts ahead of the clash with Brighton

Wolves have been inconsistent so far this season, with a number of good wins backed up by disappointing defeats.

The frustration that Wolves' fans are forced to feel has intensified slowly over the last few weeks with their victories unable to spark their side into a run of wins. However, the team have another chance to turn their poor form around as they take on Brighton this evening, and manager Walter Zenga has been speaking to the club's official website about his pre-match thoughts.

Disappointment would have been rife as a loss to struggling Wigan and then a very haphazard defeat against Norwich left the frustration of the fans to stew over the international break.

The team returned from the break and played superbly in the second half against Aston Villa as they deserved to take all three points from the game. However, they could not find a way through a vulnerable Villa team that were there for the taking. 

A lack of a real killer edge once again hurt Wolves and it leaves them languishing in 12th place, 10 points shy of Norwich at the summit. While Wolves have looked very good at different points in the season, Zenga must turn his attention to making his side a consistent one.

Their opponents this evening are a Brighton side that are in fine form, currently residing in fourth place in the league with 22 points.

While Brighton will prove to be a very difficult opponent, they could constitute the perfect way for Wanderers to get back on track this season. Walter Zenga told Wolves’ official website: "We haven’t had the same level of performances, here does seem to be crazy results in all the division. But that is what happens in the past. It doesn’t mean it should happen again in the future.

"We now want the same spirit, attitude and courage and can show that at Brighton. What is done is done, and so now we have to do it again. What I saw in the last game and the second half against Norwich was the passion and being proud to be in the team.

"Brighton are a good team who are above us in the table. Last year they were very close to being promoted and they continue to play well so this is a very good test. They are in the play off positions, and we are not. So it is a very important game for us to confirm what we did on Saturday".

Zenga has proved to be a very honest and open coach when it comes to his comments about his team. Against Villa they were far better than their opposition, but they just could not find the second goal.

Brighton will prove a far tougher team to break down, but if Wolves can beat them, it could be the sort of result that ignites their season.
