Wolverhampton Wanderers players have been told a few home truths as they look to reverse their poor form and stay in the race for the European places, goalkeeping coach Tony Roberts says.
Roberts, standing in for head coach Bruno Lage who will miss Saturday’s trip to Chelsea having tested positive for COVID-19, reiterated that the 3-0 defeat to Brighton last weekend wasn’t acceptable.
“That performance wasn’t good enough for the level we’re playing at,” he said. “We’re eighth, we want to try and get into the European spots and we’ve had chances to do that.
“If you play like that, it ain’t going to happen. The boys know that, we’ve spoken about it all week. We’ve worked on things so that doesn’t happen tomorrow (Saturday).
“We’re not digging people out, people don’t make mistakes on purpose. We’ve broken things down, looking at why it didn’t go right and what can work next time.
“If you want to be a team you’ve got to grow — and sometimes you’ve got to let each other know what they’re doing wrong and not let them take it the wrong way. We’re trying to help them and each other.”
With four matches remaining, Wolves are three points behind seventh-placed West Ham with a game in hand on David Moyes’ side.Wolves squad spoken to about mistakes as they look to turn poor form around — Roberts - The Athletic View Story
