Stephen Ward wants Wolves to be more than just Barclays Premier League survivors this year after last season's final day escape.

After an impressive unbeaten start to the current campaign, the 26-year-old is hoping the club can capitalise on their seven points thus far, and continue their forward momentum despite the ill-timed international break.

"It's a really good start and one we can build on," said Ward.

"We finished last season strongly and I think having had another year in it, everyone has played their part.

"Going into our third season, we're not newcomers any more and we feel like we're becoming an established Premier League team which is what the aim is.

"We want to stay up this season but finish as high as we can."

Ward, who is away on international duty with Ireland, hinted that there was a lot of pressure on the team last season as they fought to stay up.


“If you look at the bottom half of the table, I think survival is always the first thought because we want to make sure we're not in a scrap down there," he continued.

"Last season it was too close for comfort but with the start we've had, we don't want to waste it - we want to build on it and not just settle for staying up.

"It's a good start, but we won't be getting carried away - there's plenty of hard work ahead.”

The Wolves defender was also cautious of what lay in store for the West Midlands team. He concluded: "Tottenham is a massive match for us but we can go into these games with confidence.

"Our feet remain firmly on the ground and we'll prepare just like we will every game."
