Ward loves this sort of pressure
Stephen Ward is relishing a play-off push – after three seasons with the relegation blues.
Ward hopes to help Albion into the top six by winning at Huddersfield today.
He has suffered two relegations and a near miss in the last three seasons with Wolves.
So the on-loan left-back says he has a spring in his step this Easter.
Ward, who still has a year left on his contract at Molineux, said: “When you’re struggling against relegation, it feels like the whole weight of the world is on your shoulders.
“I think here we know there is pressure on us to do well and get in the play-offs.
“But it is more of exciting pressure, knowing we have worked really hard to get in a really good position.”
Ward says the current Albion said reminds him of the Wolves set up he helped to the top flight.
He added: “The squad we have now is very similar to the team I got promoted with at Wolves in 2009.
“There are a lot of young, hungry players that want to do well mixed really nicely with experience.”
“It reminds me of the team spirit as well from when we were promoted at Wolves.
“Hopefully it can go down a similar path.”
