CONNOR CALLS FOR POSITIVE FINISH
Terry Connor has challenged relegated Wolves to end a disastrous campaign on a high to take a feelgood factor into a summer of change at Molineux.
Connor's reign as interim boss ends in 10 days' time and the hunt will then start for a permanent manager, while several leading players are expected to be targets for Barclays Premier League predators.
But Connor wants his players to give supporters hope for the future with a positive outcome to Sunday's final home game with Everton.
Connor said: "It has been a difficult season but the players have had some joy for their efforts over the last three or four games with performances and a couple of results.
"We want to keep that going, have a positive end to the season and make sure fans and the club alike feel ready for next season.
"It's our last game at home and we want to finish the season in a positive manner. That's what I've been drumming into the players this week.
"If we approach it in the right manner, we can give a good account and send the supporters home feeling good about next year and that it will be a successful one.
"We want to do well and make them want to come back and support their team."
Connor and his players will undertake a lap of appreciation around Molineux after Sunday's game.
He said: "It is difficult, of course. It is always difficult when a team does that at the end of the season after being relegated.
"But I think it is very important that we show our appreciation to all the fans and to the club itself. It is something we should do."
Connor will conduct a review of the season with club owner Steve Morgan and chief executive Jez Moxey at the end of the campaign.
He will give an honest appraisal of what has gone wrong this season and the best way to move forward.
Connor said: "I've been asked to look after things until May 13 and then we will sit down and review the situation.
"Whatever decision is made, I will abide by that. I will give my honest opinion of what has happened this season and where the club would like to go.
"But the outcome of what happens, is down to the club itself."
Connor is full of admiration for how Sunday's opponents Everton have performed in the second half of the season.
He said: "We know how well Everton have played since the turn of the year and they are once again in the top seven or eight of the Premier League.
"They have been an excellent outfit, played some good attractive football and been scoring goals and David Moyes has done a fantastic job over 10 years."
Wolves winger Matt Jarvis (groin) and right-back Kevin Foley (hamstring) will be assessed in the next 24 hours to see if they are fit enough to face the Toffees.
