Terry Connor refuses to write off Wolves' chances of avoiding relegation.

Wolverhampton Wanderers interim boss Terry Connor has refused to write off his side's chances of avoiding relegation to the Championship.

Wednesday evening's 3-0 defeat to Arsenal left Wolves nine points clear of safety, but Connor vowed to fight on.

"There is a chance, and I have asked the lads to replicate that performance for the next five games and what will be will be," The Mirror quotes him as saying.

"If they play with the heart, spirit and determination they did [tonight], I can't ask any more."

Sebastien Bassong was sent off for giving away an early penalty in Wolves' defeat to Arsenal, a decision which Connor condemned as "unfair".

Robin van Persie converted the resulting spot kick and strikes from Theo Walcott and Yossi Benayoun sealed Wolves' fate.
