An audibly hoarse Glenn Hoddle slammed his sides less than mediocre performance in their 2-0 defeat to Plymouth Argyle.
The loss puts a massive dent in Wolves promotion acampaign, and with Preston winning away at Coventry the gap between Wolves and sixth now stands at 8 points.
Speaking to Beacon Radio Hoddle said
'There was not enough desire to win first balls. When we needed to win second balls we werent picking enough of them up.'
'It was unnacceptable and very disapointing for this stage of the seaon with what is ahead of us,'
'Last week we did enough to score two or three goals, but today we didn't look like we were going to open them up at all.'
'Today was a very lacklustre performance.'
'We didn't battle them anywhere near hard enough. We didn't deserve anything and we didn't get anything.'
'We can't afford look at other result. We have to put our own house in order.'
The eight point gap between Wolves and Preston, effectively 9 points given North End's superior goal diference has most Wolves conceding defeat in eth battle for sixth.
But Hoddle is looking to his men to bounce back from this crushing blow, and is calling for a show of solidarity whilst promotion is till possible, no matter how slim the chances.
'At this moment in time its not mathematically impossible, but it's an uphill struggle.'
'I feel sorry for the fans. We're desperately disapointed in that dressing room as well as the fans, but we've got to tick together. We can't decide just to cave in. We've got to fight it.'
'We've got to pick the players up on Monday to try and get three points at Coventry.'
Back to back losses means confidence at the club is now at a seasons low, with many openly questioning whether this current Wolves side could compete in The Premiership even if Wanderers manage to make it.
And it has also heralded fresh calls for Glenn Hoddle's head.
Calls that will significantly grow in number should his side turn out a similar performance next Saturday.
