Lambert targeting promotion

Paul Lambert said that Wolves will be pushing for promotion next season and that he is already working on signing new players.

He said that the objective this season has been to avoid relegation and with that nearly achieved it is important for the team that they start thinking ahead.

Wolves Face Test of Resolve Over Costa Future

Overall, the 2016/17 season has been a stagnant campaign for Wolves, despite having some high points including their recent impressive run and the FA Cup win over Liverpool.

Those moments are few and far between, however, with the Midlands outfit currently sitting in the lower half of the Championship table. The club looks a long way from the side that was competing in the Premier League five years ago.

Paul Lambert has righted the ship to put rest to any thought that Wolves were sliding towards another relegation to League One – following Walter Zenga’s early struggles – but progress needs to be made towards the end of the season to ensure that the team take momentum into next term.

Wolves Need German Mentality in Order to Avoid Relegation, Claims Lambert

Wolves manager Paul Lambert is still confident of avoiding the drop this season, but he says that the club would give themselves a great opportunity if they adopt the German mentality.

Despite being British, Lambert is best known for his time with Borussia Dortmund because he was one of the few Scottish players who had decided to play abroad. Lambert played for the German outfit between 1996 and 1997. Germans are known for their highly efficient nature, and Lambert says that the club needs to adopt this mentality in order to avoid relegation. A 1-0 loss against Reading has left the club just one place above the relegation zone.
