The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP - By Char­lie Ben­nett

PAUL Lam­bert has vowed to buy Bri­tish this sum­mer as he plots to re­turn Wolves back to the top flight.

The Mid­lands club have suf­fered a dis­ap­point­ing cam­paign, with Lam­bert re­plac­ing Wal­ter Zenga in Novem­ber, and only a strong spring guar­an­tee­ing their place in the sec­ond tier next sea­son.

“I will look at the do­mes­tic league be­cause there are good play­ers here,” he said.

“That’s not to say you don’t look for­eign be­cause you get ro­bust for­eign play­ers who play 40-plus games a year, play in front of big crowds and they know the de­mands of it.

“It might take them a few weeks to adapt but they can be ro­bust, so you can’t dis­miss it.

“This Cham­pi­onship is a dog­fight at times and you have to have that up-and-atthem bat­tle. It ain’t al­ways go­ing to be pretty but you know you can put peo­ple in the fray.

“You adapt to the coun­try you play in. But we’ve also got to have a Bri­tish core.”
