Steve Davis just gets it, and the Wolves players must put in a performance for him

Wolves are taking on Crystal Palace tomorrow night and are looking to build on their 1-0 win over Nottingham Forest at the weekend.

Forest were left with egg on their face, after sending out a picture tweet leading up to the game featuring striker Emmanuel Dennis with three wolf pups, along with the caption ‘Playtime’.

It was deleted in the end, and Wolves clapped back with a brilliant tweet after the 1-0 result of an image of a tree stump with an axe in it, with the caption ‘Playtime’s over’.

Goalscorer Neves had put that tweet from Forest into the players’ group chat ahead of the game. And it seemed to spur them on.

It was a huge win for Wolve. But they must now back it up with a good result against Palace.

It’ll be a tough game. Games against the Eagles usually are.

Steve Davis has been speaking to the media today ahead of the contest.

He again stated that he wasn’t too sure yet about what the immediate future holds for him, amid the search for a new head coach.

But he did say something that Wolves fans on social media have really been lapping up.

He said (via Liam Keen): “I’d be the kit man if the chairman asked me to! I love this club.

“I would drive the bus if they asked me to do that. If the chairman comes to me tomorrow and says I’m the next kit man, I’d do it. I know I’m privileged to be at this football club, it’s a great club. It’s a club I’ve loved for so long and I’d do anything.”

Wolves fan Steve Davis is living the dream, and the players must give him a performance against Palace

It is lovely to hear something like this from Davis.

It clearly means the world to him to work for Wolves. And now the players must give him a real performance. One that is full of heart and passion, just like him.

They should all see how much he cares and wants the club to succeed. They should want to take three points for him tomorrow night more than they ever have before.

Davis just gets it. And it would be brilliant if this humility could now be rewarded.

He and James Collins have done a great taking the team so far after Bruno Lage was sacked. Hopefully it will be decided that he sticks around the first-team going forwards. That is something Davis is already eyeing, and so he should.
