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."

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.
