David Edwards suggests what Wolves must do to pull themselves out of rut

Wolverhampton Wanderers are currently enduring a long run without a win.

David Edwards has insisted that, at the very least, Wolves need to show more passion if they hope to turn their season around after a poor start, the Express and Star reports.

Paul Lambert's men are currently one place above the relegation zone in the Championship and are only outside the bottom three on goal difference following Wigan's win over Huddersfield on Monday.

And with Wolves not winning any of their last nine games, the club go into Thursday's clash with Queens Park Rangers in desperate need of three points. 

But Edwards has suggested what the team can do to give them the best chance of turning their campaign around.

"We are getting clear instructions from the manager and the rest of the coaching staff but as players we've got to do it. It can't come from the fans, it can't come from the coaching staff, it's us who go over that white line and we've got to go and handle the pressure and perform," he said, as reported by the Express and Star.

"We definitely need to be more resolute but as an absolute minimum we've got to show passion and pride and I really believe from being in this league for most of my career, when you work hard, you win your second balls, and things start to happen for you.

"That is the approach we've got to take. That is the only way to get out of the hole we are in."

While it has made their situation slightly bleaker, it is surely fair to say that Wolves can take a fair amount of belief from Wigan's most recent performance.

Their opponents were sixth in the division so would have been significant favourites going into the clash, especially on their own ground. However, the Latics turned the table on its head and won.

And that should arguably inspire Wolves to go into every game believing that they are more than capable of ending their long wait for a win.
