Wolves have been unable to kickstart their campaign following their poor run of form of late as they slip closer to the relegation zone.
Wolves have been on a terrible run of form lately with a string of negative results seeing them slip further down the table. Paul Lambert was brought in to replace Walter Zenga, but the former Aston Villa manager has not seen his tenure at Wolves ignite the side. Jack Price, who has not been used since a 4-0 defeat to Barnsley in September, told the Express and Star that he thinks Wolves' fortunes will turn.
Paul Lambert saw his first game in front of the Molineux crowd end in a disappointing 2-0 defeat to Sheffield Wednesday as Wolves failed to ever really get going. The loss saw them drop down to 21st in the Championship, level with Wigan in 22nd. A loss against QPR on Thursday will see them drop into the relegation zone, something that the fans will be desperate to avoid.

With the game fast approaching, Jack Price spoke to the Express and Star about his team's lack of confidence and the fact that he believes their poor form will turn around soon: "Getting that first win could be crucial. I feel we’re going to turn a corner and that when we do we’ll go on a bit of a run. The spirits are still high. We’ve got to stick to the basics, working hard and trying to stay tight as a unit and tougher to beat. If you keep a clean sheet you’ve got a chance of picking up a win".
"Maybe with some of the players it might be confidence. I feel if we can get the first goal that’ll help drive the team on more. If you’re conceding the first goal every week it’s hard to keep turning it around. As soon as that first goal went in (against Sheffield Wednesday) you could sense with the players it was a bit of a confidence thing".
"We’re aiming to get that win that we all want to badly at the moment. If we keep working hard it will come".
It is clear that Price believes that their poor form is something that can be halted with a win which could herald the start of a more positive run.
Lambert may also be feeling the pressure after just two games in charge with the fans in desperate need of a morale boosting win. It could also see the side climb as high as 19th, albeit, with the rest of the Championship teams still to play.
Price could prove to be an integral part of Wolves' season from here on in. He will be hoping that current manager Paul Lambert sees more promise in him than former coach Walter Zenga did.
