Wolves came up against the side with the worst defensive record in the Championship at the weekend and failed to score.
Burnley had conceded 29 goals in 13 games and yet Wolverhampton Wanderers failed to break them down, going on to lose, which leaves us without a win in four.
When looking at the statistics, the reason is obvious, a lack of goals away from Molineux. For a team hoping to put together a promotion run, you have to score more than a goal a game away from home, but with only seven goals in seven games away from home we've now lost four games on the road.
I just can't help but quote the official site again when referring to a recent 'rare' away defeat. Talk about over egging it. There are only three sides in the league who have scored less than us away from home this season!
The defensive form is good, with only six conceded away from home before Saturday, but the problem with a lack of goals for is that you end up losing points when the odd goal is snatched here and there.
We spent all week trying to call for calm, whilst Ståle Solbakken's squad firmly backed their boss with calls that he is positive in his approach and is attack minded and things are beginning to click, but unfortunately there was no evidence of this against Burnley.
"It was a very frustrating afternoon and a bad performance overall, After the first goal we struggled big-time and made it hard for ourselves by giving them opportunities and they punished us for that.
"Up until that point it was two teams not really producing any chances but they got on top after scoring the goal.' Solbakken told Wolves Official Website.
He added: "It is important not to hide behind anything, it was a bad performance for long periods.
"Simple as that - we were not good enough.
Vital Wolves Comment: Great to hear some honestly, but what we really want is some action to change it.
