Wolverhampton Wanderers right-back Kevin Foley admits he has great sympathy for tomorrow’s Good Friday opponents, Southampton as they struggle for survival but insists that doesn’t extend to any favours for the visitors.
The 24-year-old defender understands the turmoil the Saints’ players must be experiencing as he was in a similar situation whilst playing at his last club Luton Town when they went into administration.
But he says it is every man for himself now with just five games left to play and Wolves desperate to get their own title-chasing ambitions back on track.
Southampton announced last week that the holding group who own the club have gone into adminstration leaving the board, players and supporters all in the dark and facing an uncertain future.
Wolves hopes of promotion from the Coca-Cola Championship were dented on Monday night with a 2-0 defeat to closest rivals Birmingham but Foley says that result is now gone as the players look towards the visit of Saints to Molineux tomorrow.
Foley, said of Southampton: “I am not sure what is going on there but it will be playing on the players’ minds with them wondering if they are going to be in this league next season or even have a club next season .
“It must be tough on them and their supporters the uncertainty of it all. I went through a similar thing at Luton and it is never a nice situation to be in but hopefully they can overcome it.”
Foley added: “They will perhaps think they can come to Wolves with nothing to lose and everything to gain. They may well come to us confident that they can impress by taking the scalp of a top side.
“So we have got to play our own game, get the ball down and pass it and aim to get maximum points.
“This isn’t the time to feel sorry for anyone,” he added.
