Following the 5-0 hammering from Derby County, Wolverhampton Wanderers were suppose to take out our frustrations against Nottingham Forest.
With the heavy defeat coming just before the international break Wolves had two weeks of pent-up frustration, with the side chomping at the bit to get back out on the pitch and put everything that went wrong right.
With Nottingham Forest without a win in five games away from home, it looked the perfect set-up for Wolves to hit back and hit back hard.
So yet another heavy defeat was not what was expected.
Goals from Britt Assombalonga and Matty Fryatt inside four second half minutes sealed the result for Nottingham Forest before Henri Lansbury wrapped up a 3-0 victory.
Wolves have now lost three games on the spin, scoring once whilst conceding ten.
‘That is now 10 goals against in three games and only one scored and that is a big swing. It is obviously something we need to address and very quickly. It is not a one-off situation. As a defence and and a team we need to defend better.’ Wolves Head Coach Kenny Jackett told the BBC.
Looking at the match stats it would be hard to argue against Nottingham Forest deserving more.
The visitors had 19 shots in comparison to our 10, whilst they had 9 efforts on target compared to 1 for Wolves.
He continued: ‘For the home side our goalkeeper had to work too much. We need to find an equation at the back that stops these goals going in and then going the other way be a threat. Both areas have to be addressed very quickly.’
