Wolves manager Glenn Hoddle was pleased with his sides 1-0 home victory against Brighton, and happy to end this seasons Molineux campaign with 3 points.

Speaking after the match he said

‘I’m please to finish at home with a win but I would have liked to have scored more goals,’

‘How Jeremie Aliadiere and Colin Cameron’s shots didn’t go in I don’t know. It sums our season up.

‘Today’s game shows how close we have come to scoring more, getting more points on the board, and to be up there battling for promotion. It’s very frustrating when you know what we could have achieved.

‘Nobody is more disappointed than myself, the staff and the players and I know that as manager I have to take responsibility for results.

Throughout the game chants demanding Hoddle’s head could be heard from most sections of Molineux, and he was keen to point out that whilst he hears them, if they have any effect at all, it is to spur him on. Although he expressed concerns aout how it may be effecting the playing staff.

‘As manager I have to take it on the chin. I’m made of stern stuff and it makes me even more determined.

‘But what I don’t like is that it’s seeping through to the players. It affects performances and it doesn’t help us.’

With the season drawing to a close, thoughts are now turning to the imminent change about to engulf the black country club, as Hoddle went on to explain.

‘Now we have to sit down and see how we can take the club forward.

‘We have already been working diligently in the transfer market. It’s not as though I’ve come here and spent £10 million.

‘Without doubt there will be comings and goings but I can’t go into detail until I know what money there will be. But it will be a different Wolves next season and expectations will have to change.’
