POOR DEFENDING

The Wolves manager Stale Solbakken has heavily criticised by defending of the team in the recent match against Nottingham forest. Wolves were defeated in the match 2-1, which lifted them without a win in the last eight matches.

This poor run of form has seen them slowly slip down the table. Getting promotion into the Premier league was one of the main objectives of the team after they were relegated in the summer, but avoiding relegation is the main priority right now. The defending of the team was at its worst in the 2-1 defeat against Nottingham Forest.

Wolves previous victory came in the month of October. The 1-0 away victory against Blackburn at the start of October was the final time the club tasted success in the last two months. It has seen them slip from the position where they could challenge for the play-offs to a position where they will be relegated to the third division. Solbakken has admitted that a lack of confidence is one of the main reasons for the team performing poorly. He has said that the game is extremely open for his liking, which allowed Nottingham Forest to counter-attack the home team on a number of occasions.

"We have struggled to win our even games this season. We have had too many draws, we know that. But, overall, we feel our performances at home have been okay. Obviously we need to pick up points very, very soon now – and we know that those points have to be three points, not just one. I was not happy with the way we defended. It was too open and we allowed them to counter-attack," said the Wolves. He will be leading his team to face Millwall in the next match following which it will be Birmingham City.
