Going back a little further, it’s now seven defeats in the last nine and fans are starting to express their concern about the club’s fate this season.

At the moment, the club are 10 points clear of the relegation zone.

Yesterday’s game was bitterly disappointing.

It started with Willy Boly conceding a penalty, before the Ivorian atoned with an assist and a goal.

Wolves should have kicked on in the second half having gone in 2-1 up at the break, but some alarming defending from Conor Coady saw the Baggies convert another penalty to equalise, before Semi Ajayi heading the visitors ahead.

It was then about defending that lead for Sam Allardyce, who can be absolutely delighted with the performances of Ajayi and Kyle Bartley at the back for his side.

Once again for Wolves, there was no cutting edge amid the defensive struggles, and the clamour for new faces will only increase.

Interestingly, Wolves fans couldn’t help but notice the demeanor of Nuno during yesterday’s game, especially in the second-half.

In what was the biggest game of the season so far, the manager could be seen looking forlorn and impassive on the bench, when he might otherwise have been frantic and animated, and some fans have speculated his time at Molineux may be coming to an end:
