Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Roger Johnson is confident he will not suffer the indignity of enduring relegation from the Barclays Premier League two seasons in a row.

Johnson did his level best to keep former club Birmingham in the top flight, but survival proved a bridge too far for the Blues who resume residence in the Npower Championship.

But, following his move to Wolves and retention of his own Premier League status, new captain Johnson plans to lead his new club onwards and upwards.

The 28-year-old, who has been given the captain's arm band by Mick McCarthy, says: “The team spirit is important because that's what gets you through some of the tough games.”

Johnson believes Wolves can ‘get higher up that league table than we were last season’ and he adds: “Wolves stayed in the Premier League last season after they came through a lot of tight games.

"I've seen nothing in training to worry me - it's a good, tight unit here. The squad is decent. I think the manager is trying to get a couple more players in and we’ll have to see how that goes.

"But there’s a good team here with some great lads – we’ve got players here who can go and win games for us if everyone’s fit and stays fit."


Johnson may well have some new teammates next season as McCarthy has hinted that his transfer window is still wide open.

"We keep looking, but we don't know," Johnson continued. "There's still quite a lot of time to go in the window actually and who's to say we might turn someone over. We may possibly be able to do business and pick somebody up but there's nothing imminent."
