Wolves have lost yet again in the Premier League, going down 4-0 at home to Leicester City in what is easily the worst result of the season so far.

Steve Davis was looking to get things back on track after the midweek defeat to Crystal Palace.

Wanderers actually started the game very well at Molineux, knocking the ball around well and creating chances.

But a moment of magic from Youri Tielemans, followed by a simple goal from Harvey Barnes saw the Foxes go in 2-0 up at the break.

Wolves showed a little fight early in the second-half, but poor defending allows James Maddison to waltz to the edge of the box and finish low into the corner.

More bad defending then allowed Timothy Castagne to pick out Jamie Vardy in the middle for an easy tap in.

Quite simply, it was another display that was devoid of any fight.

With each game that passes, it is looking as though Wolves will be contesting a relegation battle come the final months of the season.

Understandably, Molineux turned toxic during parts of today’s game.

And one of the main targets for the home crowd was Scott Sellars, the club’s technical director.

It has been reported this week that he has been taking an active role on matchdays for Wolves. Apparently, he has been in contact with Davis and those in the dugout over in-game decisions.

According to journalists Alex Dicken and Liam Keen, chants such as ‘Sellars, make a sub’ and ‘Scott Sellars, get out of our club’ could be heard.

The technical director, and executive chairman Jeff Shi, are now under serious pressure at the club.

Wolves set for a relegation battle after awful mismanagement

It is hard to see how anything but a relegation battle awaits for Wolves.

Leicester were without an away win all season before today’s game. This was a chance for the players to prove some of the doubters wrong.

But it was another shocking performance overall.

And while the players are not covering themselves in glory at all right now, senior officials are hugely to blame for Wolves’ struggles.

Sellars should not be interfering on matchdays. And some of the decisions he and Shi have overseen in terms of recruitment in recent times have been shocking.

Moving forwards, it would be no surprise if such chants were repeated.
