Doherty says it is too early for Wolves to panic
Wolves’ Matt Doherty says it is still too early for his side to worry about their poor form, despite extending their winless run to six on Friday.
The Irishman put his side 1-0 up away at Cardiff but they failed to take their chances and were punished as second-half goals from Aron Gunnarsson and Junior Hoilett saw the Bluebirds take all three points.
After storming to the Championship title last term, the Molineux-outfit maintained their momentum in the early weeks of their Premier League return but have struggled of late, not winning since October 6.
Their tepid displays have prompted relegation fears amongst the fans but Doherty is doing his best to remain calm, insisting it is too early to panic.
‘We need to get off this run as soon as possible,’ said Doherty. ‘It’s frustrating to lose five in six for the quality of players we have and the way we play.
‘But our confidence hasn’t gone. I think you would be able to tell in our play if we were not looking for the ball, showing for angles or were hesitant.
‘We’re not used to losing consecutive games, but you can see in our play we’re not panicking.’
Wolves face another tricky night on Wednesday when they take on Chelsea but at a handy price, punters may opt to use their free bet to back Nuno Santo’s men to cause a shock by claiming all three points.
