‘Welcome to Fort Molineux’ will be the message for the rest of the season if striker Andy Keogh has his way.
The Irish striker said: “We’re getting this place like a fortress. We’ve only lost once, against a very good Reading team, and that was when people got injured.
“We’ll keep plugging away and getting our wins because the main thing is to stay top, with everyone still winning around us.”
The 22-year-old has had some stick from fans in the past but lately there have been cheers as well, particularly after he laid on the third goal last week against Derby.
“I think the majority of fans know I always give my all and I’ll never stop doing that no matter what team I play for.
“They’ve been brilliant and they have got behind all the lads brilliantly, whoever’s on the pitch.”
Keogh knows though that it will be a battle to hold on to his place in the starting line-up if, as expected, top scorer Chris Iwelumo is back in the squad after rolling his ankle in training before the Derby game.
Keogh said: “Whoever plays can do the job and play well so it’s a win-win situation.
“I’m not sure I can keep him out because I didn’t score!
“But I contributed and the gaffer knows what he gets from me and he knows I’m available if needed.”
Iwelumo, with 13 goals so far said: “Andy came in last Tuesday and he was man of the match and on Saturday his work ethic was superb and I’ve told him many times that he has to be more selfish in front of goal rather than think of the team so he can get his own rewards because he puts in such a lot of work.
“Andy has been awesome in the last two games and that competition pushes each player to get more out of themselves which can’t be a bad thing for the team.
“It’s a squad game these days – I don’t think one individual can play 46 games any more.”
