The former Wolves midfielder is happy with the appointment of Lambert at Molineux.

Former Wolves midfielder Jamie O’Hara has commented on his former club’s chances of Championship survival.

O’Hara joined Wolves initially on loan in January 2011 before signing on permanently that summer. He went on to struggle with injury problems at the club and was relegated from both the Premier League and the Championship at Molineux.

Wolves are struggling this season in the Championship and have already replaced their manager, sacking Walter Zenga and replacing him with Paul Lambert.

The midfielder, who is a free agent after leaving Gillingham in September, was speaking to the Championship goals show on Channel 5 when he made his feelings clear on Wolves’ survival chances. He feels that Lambert is the perfect man to keep Wolves on the right path:

“I think they need to start picking up some results and Paul Lambert is definitely the right man for the job.

“I think they will be alright. They have a good squad with loads of experience and they’ll find the way to get out of it.”

Lambert has so far failed to win as Wolves manager and the side lost his first home game in charge against Sheffield Wednesday at the weekend.

Wolves invested heavily in the team this summer after their takeover from the Fosun group but results on the pitch have not yet followed.

Hopefully Lambert’s appointment can help them back up the table.
