Wolves made one change to the starting 11 by bringing in Sam Vokes from the start. However a Burnley side who have had a equally poor run, ran riot. Wolves were behind after 6 minutes when Wade Elliott crossed to the far post for McCann to powerfully head past Hennessey. Soon after Steven Caldwell and Martin Paterson were denied by two excellent saves from Hennessey. Elliott then headed over from 15 yards from a Robbie Blake cross and Paterson, who should have had a penalty earlier, rounded Hennessey only to see his shot cleared of the line. Wolves looked weak and resorted to shots from distance and rarely troubled Burnley keeper Brian Jensen.
With the chasing pack closing up fast, Wolves seem to be a side that got there and are now in free fall. The problem for Wolves is that they had the same run of form last season through December 2007 to end of February 2008 without showing any glimpse of turning it around. This sent us into midtable mediocrity and we just missed out on the play offs. The same is happening again with no sign of a turnaround soon. Mick has to question his tactics and team selection that is resulting in Wolves lacking confidence and basically getting worse. The papers are full of players getting the manager the sack, Chelsea, Manchester City, Portsmouth etc, are we looking at the same at Molineux?
