Wanderers took an early lead against Nottingham Forest at Molineux on Saturday only to see the visitors turn matters around to triumph 2-1 thanks to former midfielder Adlene Guedioura's winner.

It extended Wolves' winless run to eight games, with four defeats in their last five games, a sequence of results which has seen them slip from third place in the Championship to 17th.

Solbakken said: "After conceding the second goal (against Forest) we looked like a team who had not won for a while.

"You could see that in the way that we passed the ball. Safe balls went wrong and many players made the wrong decision.

"That is often down to a lack of self-belief and that has to go before we play Millwall on Tuesday. We have not lacked it before but you could see it after we went 2-1 down. We have to work on that because if you are afraid of something you will never turn the corner."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
