Stephen Hunt has called for Wolves to put their bodies on the line as they battle to stay clear of the relegation dogfight in 2012.

Mick McCarthy's men survived the second-half sending-off of midfielder Nenad Milijas to earn a creditable 1-1 draw at Arsenal on Tuesday, helped in no small part by an heroic display from goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey.

Republic of Ireland midfielder Hunt, 30, believes such a collective battling spirit can help guide the Molineux club to safety, saying: "Everyone is desperate to stay in this league. Everyone is putting their bodies on the line. Sometimes they hit you and go in, sometimes they hit you and go past the post."
