Wolves defender Richard Stearman has praised the decision to appoint Terry Connor as the club's manager until the end of the season.
Connor, who has been assistant manager at Wolves since 2008, was promoted to the top job at Molineux last week after Mick McCarthy was dismissed on 13th February.
And in his first match in charge, Connor saw his side fight back from 2-0 down to claim an impressive 2-2 draw at high-flying Newcastle on Saturday.
"We were all delighted for TC and you could see out on the pitch we were working our socks off for him," Stearman told the club's official website.
"Things can change in this league week after week but at the moment we're on a high after the Newcastle result"

"Continuity is the perfect word for what has happened. TC has been coaching us for years, he knows the boys inside out so in the end I think it was a perfect choice."
The draw lifted Wolves out of the relegation zone and Stearman is in no doubt as to the significance of the result.
"It was a massive point for us at Newcastle especially after being 2-0 down," he added.
"The boys showed great fight and team spirit and got the point we deserved in the end.
"They scored one goal which was maybe a bit lucky and then one really good goal.
"After that we defended really well as a team and as a unit and need to continue that and stop conceding the sloppy goals that we have done."
Wolves travel to London next weekend for Sunday's clash against Fulham with Stearman saying his side will be boosted after the Newcastle comeback.
"It's the old cliché about there being no easy games in the Premier League and Fulham picked up a good win at the weekend [against QPR]," he said.
"They'll be full of confidence but so are we and we'll be going there looking to get a positive result.
"Things can change in this League week after week but at the moment we're on a high after the Newcastle result.
"We'll continue to keep training hard and look towards the weekend."
