To put a different spin on an old saying 'what a difference a game makes'

At a point in the season when Mick McCarthy and Wolves will have been worried that they were letting Premier League status slowly slip away from them, they suddenly find themselves taking all three points from a strong Manchester City side. 

It's the side of football that keeps the fans coming back for more, week in, week out; the unpredictability of it all. We are in the midst of arguably the strangest Premiership season since its initial inception.

In fact, aside from Chelsea sitting pretty at the top, nothing's gone to plan for any of the other so-called 'Top Four' and after ten games things are tight at both ends of the table. 

On Saturday, Wolves not only secured themselves valuable points, they sent a clear message out to any other teams at risk of relegation: "We aren't going without a fight." Of course, it is a statement that must be followed up on - perform like that every week and safety is all but assured; don't, and you'll find yourself in trouble. 

Against Manchester City, the Wolves' back four were all stand-out performers in the side's ability to keep City at bay and limit their options in attack; Marcus Hahnemann played his part as well, cutting out a low Balotelli cross that could have made its way to Adebayor. 

Having played so well against Chelsea and West Ham with little to show for it, the three points gained against City will be invaluable to McCarthy's side.

Not only does it give them the 'bonus' points they so desperately needed it gives them confidence that when they visit Old Trafford and welcome the Gunners to Molineux in the coming weeks, they may just be able to get results.
