George Saville delivers Wolves relegation verdict, next two games critical
By Danny Wright
George Saville believes that Wolves must get something out of their next two games to lift relegation pressure off them.
If Paul Lambert’s side had failed to beat Rotherham at the weekend they would be sitting in the relegation zone, although they do have games in hand.
Helder Costa missed a penalty but a goal from Andreas Weimann secured their first win in eight matches.
Saville is gearing up for a return to his former club Brentford on Tuesday night and sees it as an ideal opportunity for Wolves to take advantage of their games in hand.
Saville spent a season on loan at Griffin Park before joining Wolves in 2014.

“Over the past six weeks we haven’t had the rub of the green but against Rotherham we had that,” said Saville, as quoted by the Express and Star.
“You could feel the tension building a bit, and then obviously the missed penalty, then we score and get over the line.
“We’ve got the two games in hand. If we get something out of those games it’s massive for us. It would lift (pressure) off us completely.”
Blackburn are one of the clubs in the drop zone that are in reach of the Black Country club and they too play a game in hand on Tuesday night as they visit in-form Fulham.
Tony Mowbray has seen his side become a huge threat to some of the clubs that are just above the bottom three since taking charge at the club.
A win for Lambert and his men against Brentford could see them move up two places in the league standings although if results were to go against them on Tuesday night they could move down to 21st place and come even closer to a place in next season’s League One.
