Wolves fans react on Twitter to Danny Batth's performance v Norwich

Wolves' 2-0 defeat to the Canaries left some fans disappointed with their centre-back's performance.

A 2-0 defeat away from home at a strong Championship side is no disgrace.

For Wolverhampton Wanderers, however, their 2-0 loss at Norwich City was a costly one. The Canaries are now five points clear of Wolves, sitting in the final play-off place. A win for the visitors would have taken them above Norwich...

Things are far from disastrous for Kenny Jackett's men, of course, but this result was certainly a blow for their play-off hopes.

Could it be a blessing in disguise anyway for Wolves? Will it hurt them if they go up too soon?

What can be said is that this was a big game that presented a winnable opportunity. Jackett's side, though, let themselves down with their performance - according to fans on Twitter after the game.

And one particular culprit was Wolves centre-back Danny Batth, who was criticised for his display against Norwich - and his tendency to hoof the ball up-field instead of pick a smarter pass.

Rajiv van La Parra 27 26 1,748

As Opta stats show, Batth has played every single one of Wolves' Championship games this term and, along with Kevin McDonald, is one of his side's best tacklers.

Both drew criticism from supporters against Norwich, however, as Jackett's men produced a below-par performance - and defended poorly for both Canary goals...
