Steve Morgan blows top at Wolves players

Wolves head for Saturday's crunch showdown with QPR on the back of a dressing room rollicking from owner Steve Morgan.

The chairman broke with protocol and stormed into a stunned home dressing room after Tuesday night's second-half surrender to Liverpool to deliver a scathing attack on the players.

The dressing-down came in front of manager Mick McCarthy and is thought to be the first time Morgan has ever delivered such an emotional post-match reaction to a performance.

But with pressure mounting as Wolves' Premier League future becomes more precarious , Morgan could not hide his anger after the team hit one of the low points of the season.

McCarthy is unlikely to have welcomed Morgan's heated intervention but with two wins from the last 21 games, the Wolves manager is also feeling the heat of a Molineux mood which is turning ugly.

In his only briefing with the media since the start of the season, the millionaire who took over in August 2007 repeated his belief in McCarthy's ability to pull the team to safety in a third consecutive Premier League campaign.

But he also admitted results had been "unacceptable" and a long way short of what had been envisaged of Wolves this season.

Last night's results mean that Wolves head for QPR on Saturday in danger of falling six points behind fifth-from-bottom Rangers if they lose.

It is a volatile atmosphere for Tottenham loan defender Sebastien Bassong, to step into but the 25-year-old Cameroon international is still relishing the opportunity provided by deadline night signing.

"There are some great players here and a great manager. I know that there is a challenge ahead and I wanted to be a part of it," said Bassong. "Knowing what I do about Wolves there is a great spirit in the team and the manager and they play with spirit."
