Wolves boss Glenn Hoddle has worried a lot of people in his time, now he is trying to worry Reading ahead of the game at the Mad Stad tomorrow.
Wolves are just one place and two points adrift of a play off spot at the moment and the play offs are Hoddle's aim, he insists that on Saturday his side will be able to cope with the pressure and come away from the Mad Stad with something.
He wants his side to be the first since Plymouth on the opening day of the season to win on the Royal's patch.
“We know we have got a tough game ahead of us,” said Hoddle.
“Playing away from home at Reading will be difficult because everyone whose been there this season, apart from Plymouth, hasn't come away with much.
“We are going to have to play well, but we will go there very positive. I'm not going to go there to try to hang on to their tails, we'll go there to try to cause them as many problems as we can and see how they deal with it.”
“I don't think there's been many teams that have gone there and really taken them on, but we'll need to take them on because of the position we find ourselves in.
“We'll find out if we can cope with the pressure,” he added.
“I think we've got players who can deal with that, so let's hope it's a problem we have.”
“But I would say we would have to play better than we did at home to Reading and Sheffield United, which were both big games.
