The Wolves players were shattered following the defeat to Bolton.
But the fans were not only left shattered, but dreams left in tatters.
It might not be mathematical yet and the real optimists will still be clinging on to that fact and good for them.
But the rest of us have now quietly accepted our impending doom.
The game against Bolton was one we simply had to win, we all knew it because if we lost, which we did, we’d be left too far adrift going into the final seven games of the season.
“We`re all shattered in there – the lads gave everything today and played well for an hour but in the end we`ve come up short.’ Terry Connor told the Sunday Mercury after the game.
He’s right we did play well for an hour and we initially led thanks to Michael Kightly.
But unfortunately the 60 minute mark is only 2/3rds of the game and in the final 1/3rd Bolton equalised, took the lead and then put the game beyond doubt with their third.
Matthew Jarvis might have got a second late on, but it was always only ever going to be a consolation.
TC continued: “We didn`t look like a team at the bottom for long periods and it`s difficult to take for everyone connected to the club.
“All I can ask is the lads give their all for the last seven games and approach them in the same way and with the same desire and spirit as today.
And in his final, state the bloomin obvious comment, he concluded by adding: “We will make our mistakes and have said before that we`re not the best team in the league.
Real ground breaking insight there TC, I was wondering why we weren’t competing for a place in the Champions League………
