Wolves fans plan protest at televised Watford game

Sport | Published:

Disgruntled Wolves fans are set to stage a pre-match protest ahead of the team's televised clash with Watford on Friday.

A group calling themselves Wolves Supporters Alliance (WSA) are organising the rally in front of the Sky Sports cameras for before and after the game outside the Billy Wright Stand.

They are angry at what they say is a lack of transparency with the club's management.

The WSA website says it seeks a platform to ask pertinent questions to both owner Steve Morgan and chief executive Jez Moxey. The group says it is attempting to alleviate the anxiety surrounding the future of the club and provide fans with an alternative voice to that of the official Fans Parliament.

Issues raised by the WSA include the club's transfer policy, the decision to re-build the Stan Cullis Stand, the hiring policy of managers and the development of the training ground.

This afternoon, Wolves spokesman Matt Grayson told the Express & Star:

"We're constantly talking with fans and we share their huge disappointment at results on the pitch.

"They have delivered great backing to the team throughout all the games and we'd ask our supporters to continue with that at a time when it's needed more than ever.

"We'll be repeating this request at Wednesday's Fans Parliament meeting, where we'll be answering all supporters' questions."


Fans have become more restless in recent weeks following a winless run that has seen Wolves yet to record a win this year.

A defeat to relegation rivals Barnsley last Tuesday was followed by ugly scenes with sections of the away support berating players as they left the pitch.

The latest loss to table-toppers Cardiff City on Sunday left Dean Saunders' men in the Championship bottom three and facing the possibility of a second consecutive relegation.
