As the post-mortem begins at Molineux, where did it all go wrong for Wolverhampton Wanderers?
Derby County dished out a footballing lesson to Wolves on Saturday.
The only saving grace of it all was that Derby stopped the scoring after an hour, with the damage already done at 5-0.
But when you are handed a lesson, it’s crucial you learn from it.
Some supporters could argue that the lessons were clear before Saturday. But now it’s down to head coach Kenny Jackett to really show his metal.
“You have to use that hurt to improve your team. I felt our defending was very, very poor. You could say Derby were clinical but against good footballing sides you cannot let them score from set-pieces.”
“We have to recognise that and work at it until we play again.’ Jackett told Birmingham Mail.
The problem for Jackett however is we are now in the midst of an international break, with a number of players disappearing to join up with their countries.
He continued: “You want to spend as much time as possible working with the players. Five of those six are probably first team regulars. When they are back at the end of next week we will have to pick it up then.
“It is frustrating but I am pleased for the individuals.
‘We have to make sure that it doesn`t become a worry or a trend. Only future games will tell us that. Our attitude must be now to fight back and make sure it doesn`t become a dip in form.’
