Wolves boss Dean Saunders wants to do relegation rivals Bristol City "damage"
Wolves manager Dean Saunders has turned up the heat by exhorting his players to do relegation rivals Bristol City some “damage.”
The two sides meet at Molineux on Saturday in a contest that could have a profound influence on the race to avoid the drop.
City beat Middlesbrough 2-0 to move off the foot of the table at the weekend and they go into this week’s big game level on points with fourth-from-bottom Wolves.
Beaten 3-1 at Nottingham Forest last time out, Wolves have won only two of their last 14 games and are in real danger of suffering a second successive relegation.

Only goal difference is keeping Wolves out of the drop zone – they are two better off than the Robins – with nine games left and manager Saunders is feeling the pressure.
Eager to accentuate the positives, he told the Express and Star newspaper: “We’re not in the relegation zone and have to go into the Bristol City game thinking we can do them some damage.
“I’m sure we can take some positives from Saturday’s game. For long periods we were probably the better team.
“We could have drew or won, but there are fine margins, and we have got to make sure we’re up and ready for Bristol City.”
Saturday’s defeat was Wolves’ heaviest under Saunders but the manager is convinced they were hard done by.
“The score-line didn’t reflect the game – we just didn’t take our chances,” complained Saunders.
Wolves will be without Stephen Ward for Saturday’s game after the defender was shown a straight red card for hauling down Forest’s Greg Halford at The City Ground.
