Disapointed with Wolves Effort

Disapointed with Wolves Effort

Glenn Hoddle has spoken at his disappointment with his sides lack of second half fight. Talking on Radio WM Hoddle opened up on his frustration.

'My concern is the second half performance.' he said, adding

'I felt the players just didn't go out there second half and show the desire that was needed to win the game from where were playing first half.”

“Leicester are fighting for every point and their desire was, quite frankly for that ninety minutes better than ours man for man.”

“I've said that to the players. They're disappointed in the way they've played but we have to learn and move on. What we said in there many needs to be a harsh lesson to us to turn a game in our favour when it goes like that.

Hoddle tried Tomasz Frankowski within 3 different strike set ups at The Walkers, but he was never really close to making a killer blow.

But Hoddle has been impressed by what he's seen so far and has faith in Frankowski's ability to find the net.

“He hasn't had much chance to actually train with us, but if we give him chances he's a clinical finisher, I've seen that in training already.”

“Unfortunately for him we haven't created as many chances as we have been especially at the start of the season.”

“At the moment we've got a lot of hard work to do to get back to where we were 5 or 6 weeks ago when we were having 28 attempts at goal and 30 odd crosses in a game which is phenomenal.”

“But the last 2 league games that just has happened.”

“The harsh words that were said in that dressing room, I 've got to go in there and hurt the players and we've got to respond against Crewe.' ended Hoddle showing his own frustration with the display.

Wolves are fast running out of any room for error. If indeed there is any left at all.

But a personal mistake from one player shouldn't hide the fact that Wolves left their fight in the dressing room atthe end of half time.

They now need back to back wins to maintain the 2 point average many fans think could get them into the play offs.

But the second against Burnley at Turf Moor will require much more application than currently on show today to come away with anything let alone all three points.

Glenn Hoddle has enough tools to work with, but at the moment his creation lacks heart.

And theres yet to be a team gain promotion that hasn't got one beating hard and strong.
