Deano 7-2 for Premier push at Molineux

DEAN SAUNDERS was always the favourite to take over from Stale Solbakken as Wolves manager and the Welshman is 7-2 with bet365 to lead Wanderers back into the Premier League during his Molineux reign.

“The aim is to get back into the Premier League,” said Saunders, who has had previous managerial spells at Wrexham and Doncaster.

Saunders is 5-6 with bet365 to start next season as Wanderers boss, while he is the same price to be out of a job for the beginning of the 2013-14 campaign and it will be difficult for him to reach the top flight this season with Wolves 19th in the Championship.

Wolves are generally available at 33-1 to gain promotion to the Premier League this season and a much shorter 16-1 with BetVictor and Blue Square Bet to suffer a second straight demotion.

However, Ladbrokes have faith in the Saunders appoinment and cut him Wolves from 16-1 to 12-1 to finish the season in the play-off positions.
