Solbakken blasts Wolves defending against Nottingham Forest
WOLVES manager Stale Solbakken blasted his side's defending at Molineux – but told his players to keep believing in what they are trying to achieve.
Wolves have now gone eight games without a win in the Championship and Solbakken admitted they looked short of confidence once Forest had gone ahead in the second half on Saturday.
But he is also convinced that things will come good for them if they continue to do the right things.
"We have struggled to win our even games this season. We have had too many draws, we know that," he said. "But, overall, we feel our performances at home have been okay.

"Obviously we need to pick up points very, very soon now – and we know that those points have to be three points, not just one."
Wolves were jeered off the pitch by their own fans at the end of the game and the manager admitted that he shares the supporters' frustrations.
"I was not happy with the way we defended. It was too open and we allowed them to counter-attack," he said.
"After conceding the second goal we looked like a team that had not won for a while.
"Safe balls went wrong and many players made the wrong decision. We need to believe in what we are doing and I think it was a bit too wild west sometimes."
The result left Wolves, one of the pre-season promotion favourites, seven points off the play-off places – but also just seven points away from the bottom three.
"Forest made it difficult for us and we did lack confidence at times," added Solbakken. "We struggled to get any rhythm after the second goal had gone in."
