    Chelsea defender Michael Mancienne is happy with his midfield role at Wolves.

    Mancienne is starting to adjust to the midfield role and relished taking on Liverpool skipper Steven Gerrard, who returned from injury in the goalless draw.

    He said: "I'm growing to like the position of central midfield. I've come on for Chelsea a couple of times there and started against Man City for Wolves and now this game.

    "It was the same game plan against Steven Gerrard I'd play against anyone. I was pleased with how it went against him - but I only did it with the help of the boys around me.

    "But I do enjoy that role of trying to shackle someone, trying to nick the ball in front of people, and getting right up close to someone."

    Mancienne feels Wolves will take great heart from holding the revitalised Reds and the point kept them above the bottom three.

    He said: "That draw is going to give the boys a massive boost. We basically stopped them from creating anything and I think that has given the boys a big lift for the next couple of games.

    "It was hard work for us. It is a testament to us because we all worked hard and stopped them from being a good side."
