Wolves players Karl Henry and Christophe Berra are confident Wolves will avoid relegation from the Premier League if they maintain the level of performance shown against Manchester United on Saturday.

United needed a late strike from Paul Scholes to kill off the challenge of Mick McCarthy's side, who had chances to secure at least a point.

They remain only one place above the drop zone after Hull's 5-1 hammering by Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday.

But skipper Henry is adamant Wolves, who face fellow strugglers Burnley at Turf Moor this weekend, can beat the drop if they maintain their current standards.

Henry said: "Saturday was disappointing. I thought we made a very good side look ordinary at times and played really well, but again it's to no avail.

"You could see how much it meant to United to win the game at the end and it was by no means a comfortable victory. They had to work hard for those points.

"It's another game with the top four out the way but we can take a lot of heart from the performance.

"We played well and, although the gaffer keeps on at us about playing well but not getting anything, if we keep going like this we'll be fine."

Henry's midfield colleague David Jones echoed his sentiments but admits the Molineux outfit need to be sharper in front of goal. He said: "It was a good performance against United, as we've been doing in recent weeks, and we limited them to very little.

"It was hard to take but we have to get on with it and start getting ready for Saturday. We weren't overawed and played our fair share of football and created some chances. We were patient in our build up and passed it around and bided our time like they do.

"We just need to score some goals. With more performances like that between now and the end of the season I am sure we will pick up points."

Berra, meanwhile, feels it is only a matter of time before Wolves' luck starts to turn, providing they keep performing to their present standards.

"We are not on a low," said the Scotland international. "It is natural to be disappointed when you lose but we can take a lot of positives out of our performances.

"What we have to do now is turn the positives into points. If we keep playing as we are, maintain the same commitment and work just as hard, I am sure we will get a few results."

Given Burnley are second-bottom, a point below Wolves, with an inferior goal difference, and the element of Turf Moor being a fortress now diminishing, Berra accepts next weekend is a game to approach with an acute sense of determination.

"It will be a totally different game," he said. "There will be a bit of nerves but it will also be hell and belter because both teams will be going for it.

"Going away from home is always going to be hard but it is a game we know we can win.

"We can't just turn up. We have to earn a victory because they will think they have a great chance of one themselves.

"It is going to go right to the end for whoever wins the title and right to the end for whoever gets relegated as well."
