We Owe The Fans

Lee Evans is hoping that Wolves can produce two good performances in their final two games of the season.

Wolves make the trip to 10th placed Derby County on Saturday (3pm), followed by hosting Preston North End on the final day of the Sky Bet Championship season.

Evans admits that this season has had ‘ups and downs’, he believes that the fans deserve to see the team finish the season on a high.

“We want to end on a high, I think we owe it to the fans - it’s been a really up and down season, so if we can finish this season off with two wins, that would be ideal,” he said.

“You do tend set up a different way at home compared to away but I don't think that it should reflect as much as it has.

“We’ve performed really well away and somehow we’re going to have to make sure that next season that transfers to our home form as well because we all know as a team that we haven't been good enough at home.

“It’s not good enough for the fans, they come out in their thousands every week.

“At the moment, the away fans are getting the better games to watch and getting the better performances which isn't right.

“We want to turn that around, we want both of them to get them.

“Next season, we’ll have to do something a bit different and pick up our home form,

“We can’t put our finger on why we can't do it at home.

“We’ve got no prospect of being relegated, we’re safe so we can take the shackles off and hopefully give a good performance and get a good result.

“We’ll be hoping that we catch them on an off day - people may have looked at us and thought that they're safe with nothing to play for, that’s how we will go into this game.

“Derby haven't got a chance of getting in the play-offs, they’ve missed out on that so hopefully we can catch them cold and get a good positive result.

As well as the club having an up and down season, Evans believes that his season has gone in a similar way.

After starting the season well, he was then forced out until January with an injury that he picked up in the away game with Birmingham City.

The 22-year-old did feature in the FA Cup wins against Stoke City and Anfield however, and he says that those memories will last forever.

“The games with Liverpool and Stoke, they stand out from this season,” he continued.

“Playing at Anfield, my first ever time playing there, listening to ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ coming out - it gives you goosebumps.

“Going there, we thought we’d like to give them a game, keep in and keep tight - to go there and turn them over it was unbelievable. They are memories that will stay with me for a long, long time.

“It’s been a really up and down season as a club and for me personally it’s been like that as well.

“I started the season great, then I got the injury which was unfortunate but I can’t complain too much.

“If you looks at some of the lads like Michal Zyro and Jordan (Graham) who have been out for a year with big injuries.

“Playing those FA Cup games was a high and then even the five game winning run, I was part of that and played all of those games - it was great but I’ve had plenty of downs as well, not being involved and not playing.

“A break will be nice and then I need to come back in pre-season ready to show the manager what I can do again.”
