Captain Danny Batth says Wolves are ready to step up another level as they bid to get back into the Championship play-off race.

Batth, 25, scored the winner - his first of the season - in Saturday's 2-1 victory at Rotherham to take Wolves to within five points of the top six.

"We have to follow it up in the next game with a result," Batth said.

"There's certainly work to do but there are players in the dressing room who can all go to that next level."

Wolves stretched their unbeaten run to four games with their win at Rotherham and Batth, who returned to action in September after five months out with a foot injury, says there is no reason why they cannot keep their momentum going and clinch a play-off place at the end of the season.

"We've got to dig deep every week - we can't afford to be at 75-80%. But the application is there, it just has to click," Batth told BBC WM 95.6.

"We've given ourselves a base and it's only going to take a few results over Christmas and we won't be far away - we certainly feel we've got that in us."
