Wolves boss Dean Saunders today declared his players would all admit they deserve the under-achievers tag this season.
Saunders’ men go into Saturday’s visit of Middlesbrough second from bottom of the Championship, a point from safety after another wretched season.
They are looking to build on the much-needed 2-1 success against Bristol City 10 days ago but the manager, who has overseen two wins in his 12 games in charge, accepts the team hasn’t performed anywhere near as well as it should have done.
He said: “If you sat all the players down and ask them how they think they have done, they would all say they haven’t done enough, if they are honest.
“But you have to make sure when you go out on a Saturday, if you are playing left wing against a right-back, you make sure you get the better of him.
“That’s why you get paid a lot more than him and that’s why you cost a lot of money and he cost nothing – because, nine times out of 10, you get the better of him and that’s what you pay for.
“And if you’ve got seven players doing that all over the pitch, you’re going to get a good team performance.”Subscribe to our Newsletter
