The Republic of Ireland midfielder struggled to make an impact upon his long-awaited return from injury against Watford at the start of this month and duly heard his substitution greeted by cheers, after which he criticised the club's fans for their negativity.

As a result Hunt was roundly booed by the Molineux crowd when introduced as a 32nd-minute substitute for the injured Bakary Sako with Wolves one-nil down in Saturday's crucial clash with fellow strugglers Bristol City.

But he was drinking the man of the match champagne afterwards as his two assists set up the goals for Wolves' critical 2-1 victory, and Hunt has called for a united front from all concerned over the remaining eight games over the season as the Black Country club aim to retain their second-tier status.

"It's not me against the fans or anything like that - it's all of us in it together," he told the club's official website.

"I've always had the support of the fans here, it wasn't me having a go at them last time, it was me having a go at everything. I can deal with it, being called whatever, I can take it on the chin. I can take abuse, but I'm sure the fans can take some back."

The 31-year-old added: "It was important that we stuck together on Saturday. Things weren't going for us at times and obviously we've gifted them a goal which they were quite happy to then sit back and defend.

"We had to try and break them down then and to do so was pleasing. The reaction from all of us when we scored the second one was good - all of us celebrated together with the fans.

"We're going to need everyone from now until the end of the season, the fans included. We've got strong characters in the dressing room - a lot of players in there have been relegated before and we know what it's like, so we're going to stick together and battle for the rest of the season."

riting a minute by minute account on Berbatov would be like chronicling the days of the guy punished for sloth in the movie Se7en. Day 4 - lay in bed, did nothing - 15th minute, stood there did nothing .
