Kightly: Wolves can be champions
Published : 24 Mar 2009 14:23:00
Wanderers have been top of the league after all but six of their 40 fixtures so far this season - with only the first three matches of the campaign and a similar spell in October preventing a perfect record. With six games remaining they currently lead second-placed Birmingham by five points, with the rest of the pack chasing hard behind. But while Kightly would readily admit automatic promotion is the overall aim, he sees no reason why he and his team-mates can't do it in style. "Of course we can win it, we believe we can win it," he said. "We have been there all season. It is still a long way away and there are still plenty of points to be played for but with the grit and determination we have shown, if we can show that again over next six games that should bode well for us. "We are five points clear - why panic? We have done so well all season so we will enjoy the situation we are in and hopefully we can do the business and get up."
