Danny Batth comments on Wolverhampton Wanderers fans' criticism

Wolverhampton Wanderers are currently in 12th place in the Championship table.

Danny Batth has told the Express and Star that he has no issues with Wolverhampton Wanderers’ fans’ criticism of the team this season.

Frustrations at Molineux have been boiling throughout the campaign, with Kenny Jackett’s side failing to live up to expectations.

Wolves are currently in 12th place in the Championship table, but Batth insists his side’s struggles are not being caused by a lack of effort.

“I appreciate the fans’ concerns. Us on the pitch have to take responsibility and make sure we give them something to be proud of,” the central defender said.

"The lads are out there working hard in training, leaving no stone unturned, making sure we’re as well drilled as we can be.

“It’s a hard-working group. We’re not playing without the passion or desire that the fans warrant.”

Wolves were beaten 2-1 by Preston North End in front of their own fans last weekend, causing the anger around the club to grow even further.

Wolves supporters have been left frustrated not only by the poor performances on the pitch, but the club’s struggles in the January transfer window.

After the sale of Benik Afobe there was an expectation that an influx of players would be added to the squad, but Wolves have admitted that they missed out on a number of their top targets.

Jackett’s side now seemingly have very little chance of making it into the play offs this season, as they currently are stationed 11 points behind the top six.
