Stephen Hunt: Was shocked by behaviour of some Wolves fans

Hunt, who made his first Championship start of the season at Molineux following hip surgery, was "shocked" to hear his 64th minute substitution met with cheers from some fans.

He was also unimpressed with the negative chanting ahead of Bakary Sako's late equaliser, which handed second-bottom Wolves an important point as they fight for survival this season.

While Republic of Ireland international Hunt says the supporters can be "fantastic", the 31-year-old admits he felt embarrassed on Friday.

"I was shocked when they cheered me coming off," he told the Birmingham Mail. "Thanks for that lads. It was my first start in a long time.

"The fans can be fantastic but they can also be against us as well and that didn't help.

"I am not going to worry about what happened when I came off. It was more of a shock to me when I was sat there listening to them singing horrific songs.

"It is embarrassing, it is just embarrassing.

"They may boo me for saying that but I have always been honest.

"They can be fantastic as well so don't get me going all the one way here.

"But to be the way they were, to roll off five of six songs in a row of the calibre they did then they need to have a look at themselves."
