Kenny Jackett: Bemoans Wolves desire

Patrick Bamford's 14th goal of the season in the 31st minute and an excellent long-range finish from Ben Reeves five minutes into the second-half sentenced Wanderers to a second successive defeat for the first time this season.

They have now taken just four points from their last four games and an angry Jackett said: "It was a disappointing day and I don't think we showed enough appetite and desire. We didn't match the motivation levels of MK Dons.

"Our start to each half wasn't right and our appetite just wasn't there, which it usually is.

"We have to use this as a lesson. We have just lost two games on the trot for the first time this season and we have to bounce back.

"We have to start by competing and play with hunger. We have to play with determination, we have to run to close down and make angles more than we did today.

"Our standards have been higher than that and I think that the standard the players are capable of are higher than that.

"We can, and have to, play better and play with more appetite.

"I can't say that we did enough to get something out of the game.

"I just felt as a team we lost appetite and that is why we lost. The opposition had more appetite than us."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
