Wolverhampton Wanderers were beaten 2-1 by Preston North End yesterday.
Kenny Jackett has been sympathetic with Wolverhampton Wanderers supporters in the Express and Star, after the atmosphere at Molineux turned sour during his side’s 2-1 defeat to Preston North End on Saturday.
Wolves have had a disappointing campaign to date and supporters’ frustrations seemed to come to the fore on Saturday, as Preston took the three points from the Midlands.
Wolves struggled to ever get going, and Jackett’s decision to bring Tommy Rowe on as a late substitute was greeted with chants of “You don’t know what you’re doing.”
And Jackett admitted. "There's a lot of anger out there. There's frustration, I understand that.
"We're looking, all of us, for good performances and wins. I need to produce results.
"We have to make sure we come through this period of injuries to key people, the sides settles down and we go again.
"When we're poor and losing, crowds are critical, we have to take that and accept it.”
Preston actually raced into a 2-0 lead at Molineux, with Paul Gallagher and Adam Reach putting Simon Grayson’s side in front.
Although Wolves did stage some sort of fight back, with Joe Mason scoring, the goal turned out to be just a consolation.
The defeat was Wolves’ sixth in front of their own supporters this season, and it has left them down in 12th place in the Championship table with matches running out.
Jackett’s side’s promotion chances now look all but over, as they sit 11 points back from the top six.
