It has been predicted that a glorious future awaited the young English midfielder for some time now, but those claims have never been really justified by neither the player nor the club.

"But of course, we are proud and we believe in ourselves and it would be nice to win those last two games and have a chance of finishing in the top half of the table".

"The season starts in July and August".

"It's hard obviously but it's not one just about game", Ryan Shawcross said. The fans have been brilliant today, a tough result and they're still cheering us.

Wilfried Zaha, who had scored four goals in his four league games prior to this, then flashed a shot across the face of goal as Palace continued to look the most likely to break the deadlock in the early stages.

It may seem irrelevant, but to Wolves fans, it increases the likelihood that Jack Butland will be leaving the club in the summer.
