Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Sam Ricketts insists that everyone involved at the club needs to pull in the same direction.

Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Sam Ricketts has likened the club's ambitions to that of his former club Swansea City before their rise to the Premier League.

Ricketts played for Swansea when they in League Two, and after suffering successive relegations, the Welsh international is hopeful that Wolves can discover the same mentality as that of his former club.

The 31-year-old told the Express and Star: "I was at Swansea at the start of their rise through the divisions and one thing that we had was the support – everyone was pulling in the same direction.

"We need the same here now – that's the players, people running the club, the staff at the training ground and the media.

"To be taking 5,000 fans to Preston is phenomenal – I don't think any club that I've played for has taken that many anywhere, it's inspirational. When we pull on that shirt, we're representing them and we want them to be proud of us."

Ricketts has been made club captain after his move from Bolton Wanderers.
