Wolves have been made to pay yet again for not being able to kill games off. Having only managed 1 point from a possible 9, Hoddle is clearly finding it frustrating.

Wovles, hoping to get their season back on course, took the lead with a Kenny Miller goal; at home v an injury ravaged Derby, only to miss a hatful of chances and allow Derby’s Mounir El Hamdaoui to equalise.

Cort, Miller, Naylor and Lescott all missed great chances. Hoddle bemoaned the lack of a killer instinct: ‘We should have won. We need to start killing teams off if we want a good season and we need to start putting the ball in the back of the net more.’

One bit of bad look was referees assistant judging Carl Corts header to have not gone over the line, but in fairness, the game should have been over by then.

Hoddle, who kept the players in the changing room for an hour after teh game said: ‘I had a lot of people to talk to but there was no rollicking going on at their performance.’ No, but I bet he wasn’t exactly all smiles either?!
