Terry Connor believes Wolves have what it takes to survive relegation despite their 16th defeat of the season - this time at the hands of fellow strugglers Blackburn.
Junior Hoilett fired home a brace to send Wolves further down the table into 19th as Rovers moved just clear of the relegation zone in a tense encounter at Molineux.
The hosts had very little in response to Hoilett's double blow, however Connor - who suffered his second defeat in as many games after taking over from the sacked Mick McCarthy - said afterwards that they will continue to graft until the very end despite the setback.
"This leaves us second-bottom, but still with a lot of fight," he said.
"We spoke after the game and we still believe.
"One game doesn't make or break a season, so we will be in there and be competitive for the next 10 games."
Asked if he had the squad of players capable of staying up, a defiant Connor said: "I'm certain because we have done it for the last two years with a similar sort of group.
"This is their third attempt at it. It was always going to be a tight, hard season and that is why we must remain competitive.
"Regardless of the losses we suffer, we must remain positive so we can get enough points to remain above that dotted line come May 13."
A small number of protestors demonstrated outside of the ground before and after the game which led to club chairman Steve Morgan eventually going to speak to those involved.
On the protests, Connor said: "It is not easy to ignore, but we are all employees of the football club so if there is a protest going on, I feel it is against all of us - players, staff, everyone concerned. We are all in it together."
