While everyone else in football was wheeling and dealing in the transfer market, Wolves were on the pitch.
Whether that distracted from our efforts in the transfer market or not only the bosses at Molineux will really know.
But while movement in the January transfer window would have been nice, three points and Dean Saunders first win as gaffer would have been better. Unfortunately we ended up with neither.
A fifth defeat in seven league games, does not make good reading and neither does the Championship table which has us sitting just five points clear of the drop in 19th place, but with all five teams below us holding at least one game in hand.
We are still without a win since Dean Saunders took charge last month, although some will cling on to the improved performances.
‘I thought we played well but missed our chances. We had at least 10 clear cut chances and then got done twice on the counter attack.’ Saunders told the BBC.
He continued: ‘For the first goal we backed off and let the lad get into the six-yard box. It was not the best defending but when you lose as many games as we have done you lose belief.
‘I think we became over confident and we should have stopped Nugent right where he picked up the ball on the half way line.’
