Wolves’s January loan signing Jamie O’Hara will feature for his new club against Arsenal at the weekend, a club he knows all too well after plying his trade at The Emirates youth system before playing against The Gunners for North London rivals Spurs. O’Hara and his Wolves team-mates will be spurred on by their recent shock 2-1 victory over league leaders Manchester United, and O’Hara sees no reason why his new employers can’t get a result in London
“I don’t see why we can’t go there and get a result”, O’Hara told the Wolves official website in build up to the game. “If we stick together and work hard as a team we can take something from the game. We’ve got to believe in ourselves and if we’ve got the confidence in our ability then there’s no reason why we can’t get results”, O’Hara added. Wolves will again go into the fixture as underdogs however, as they have only recorded a solitary one win away from Molineux this season in the league.
The fixture takes on extra importance for O’Hara, as he grew up learning the game at the Arsenal academy, before moving across North London to Spurs. O’Hara is also looking to impress manager Mick McCarthy, as due to limited chances at White Hart Lane, the England under 21 International is keen to move to Molineux on a permanent basis.  When signing for Wolves he explained to BBC WM: “There’s an option in the summer to buy so hopefully this is a chance for me to impress Wolves. “Hopefully I can start a good relationship with the club and in the summer there’s a good chance that I could be signing.”
The midfield man’s commitment on the pitch is there for all to see and O’Hara can use a grudge match against Arsenal to reignite his career after injury problems and the form of others left him as a bit of a forgotten man at Spurs. Wolves moved off the bottom after their win against United and O’Hara will be hoping to inspire his teammates to a result on Saturday to boost their chance of Premier League survival.
