Matt eyes up promotion

IRISH defender Matt Doherty maintains that his Wolves side have not given up hopes of winning automatic promition to the Premier League.

Wolves are currently outside the playoff places but former Bohemians man Doherty feels that a six-point haul from their Easter programme, against Nottingham Forest tomorrow and Leeds on Monday, could put them on course.

"I know Forest are one place behind us but we're looking ahead of us all the time," says Doherty.

"We're eight points off the top and with seven games left, if we can win every one, maybe we can nick automatic promotion.

"I don't think anyone wants to play us at the moment," added the Dublin-born defender.
