Connor 'enjoying every minute'

Terry Connor insists he is still "enjoying every minute" of his time as Wolves manager - even though they have collected just one point from a possible 21 under him and appear doomed to relegation.

Connor: Defeat hard to take

• Stoke 2-1 Wolves

Saturday's 2-1 defeat at Stoke was Wanderers' sixth loss in a row and meant they remained six points adrift of safety at the foot of the Barclays Premier League with six games left to play.

For Connor - appointed in February as boss until the end of the season in the wake of Mick McCarthy's dismissal - the situation looks bleak, but he is determined to stay positive.

The 49-year-old, who was previously McCarthy's number two, is taking encouragement from his side's performances and says, despite the poor run of results, he is relishing his first taste of management.

"My family are very supportive with what is going on," Connor said. "They see this as an opportunity, as I do, and I am enjoying every minute of it. It has been great.

"I feel I am picking the right teams for the games. We work on it in training, we prepare properly with video sessions - we do everything we can in order to try to win the game.

"I thought (against Stoke) we did all we could, but if you look at the free-kick which leads to the (winning) goal, I don't think it was a free-kick."

For a third successive game Wanderers took the lead only to finish empty-handed, and Connor said: "There were loads of bright spots.

"Michael Kightly was one of them, he played particularly well on the wing. Matt Jarvis on the other wing caused problems. We had enough attacking play to get something from the game and that is what disappointed me."
