WOLVES boss Glenn Hoddle Glenn Hoddle (born October 27, 1957 in Hayes, London) is a football manager and former player for Tottenham Hotspur and England. He has had spells as manager of Swindon Town, Chelsea, England, Southampton, Tottenham Hotspur and most recently Wolverhampton Wanderers. last night warned their playoff rivals to start 'looking over their shoulders'.
It follows Wolves' 3-2 win at Hull which was their third successive victory - the first time they have achieved that this season - moving them to within two points of the top six.
Though not a polished performance, goals from Jeremy Aliadiere, Kenny Miller Kenneth "Kenny" Miller (born December 23 1979 in Edinburgh) is a Scottish professional footballer currently playing for Derby County and the Scottish national team.

But the gritty win, sealed in the final minute of normal time, has convinced Hoddle that his side are finding form at the right time and that should be of concern to the sides above them: "I can see a little bit of turn in our good fortune which we certainly haven't had all season," he said.
"I think this is a lovely time to have it because we're at the business end of the season.
"This is the first time we've won three matches on the bounce. If we can continue that it will give us confidence to go into every game now and we can make a charge for it.
"We've never given it up and I think there will be a few people looking over their shoulder now. It was a humdinger hum·ding·er
One that is extraordinary or remarkable: a humdinger of a blizzard.
[Origin unknown. for the neutral but it was too open for the managers."
"It was bold of us coming here with three up front but we looked accomplished on the ball.
Pivotal to the victory was French loan star Jeremy Aliadiere, who was making his first start since his switch from Highbury.
He opened the scoring with an 'exquisite' goal and had a hand in the second much to the delight of an impressed Hoddle: "He's a bit rusty because he hasn't played football for over a year at any first team level," said Hoddle.
"He was very professional and you want that from your players. He was running on empty because he didn't play at Celtic didn't start at West Ham Coordinates:

"I always felt we'd get 60 or 70 minutes out of him because he's a fit lad but he lasted a bit longer.
"The goal was an exquisite finish and once he got in the box I really fancied him to score once he got past the last defender having seen him in training."
Hull manager Peter Taylor felt his side contributed to their own downfall.
"I was delighted with the way we played, some of our stuff was excellent but for their first two goals, we had the ball," he said.
