Morgan: Wolves can beat the drop

Wolves chairman Steve Morgan believes his club will stay in the Barclays Premier League if they continue to show the same spirit which saw them past leaders Manchester United.

Their 2-1 win at Molineux on Saturday wrecked United's hopes of going through the league season unbeaten.

Morgan told BBC Radio 5 Live's Sportsweek programme: "People should not be overly surprised because we have played some fantastic football this season. We've had horrendous luck but it all came together and the whole club is absolutely delighted. We've got to build on that from now on. It's in our hands"

He added: "If we show the same spirit that we showed (against United) we'll be absolutely fine."

Morgan, however, insists the transfer window, in which Chelsea spent £50million on Fernando Torres and Liverpool £35m on Andy Carroll, has proved the Premier League is not a level playing field.

He added: "Wouldn't it be great to be able to be in that position to do it?

"But to be honest I think it's nuts and I don't know how certain clubs are going to get through the fair play rules which kick in next season.

"It just can't be done with transfers like that so I'm not quite sure where it's going to go from here.

"To clubs like Wolves and many other clubs like us it's completely surreal. It clearly isn't a level playing field when some clubs can literally throw telephone numbers around and others have to live within our budget."
