Wolves now the lowest scorers in the whole Football League after latest blank

Wolves drew yet another blank yesterday, as the team crashed to a 3-0 defeat against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Nothing too much was expected of the managerless outfit.

The sacking of Bruno Lage last weekend meant a week of preparing under U18s and U23 coaches Steve Davis and James Collins.

But with a lack of expectation, fans might have held out some hope of a draw against a very talented opposition.

But it was a really poor showing down in west London, with Wolves hardly offering any kind of threat.

Diego Costa was handed a first start. Going into the game he apparently had ‘hot blood’ according to Davis. It must have gone cold within minutes of kick-off, because the 34-year-old offered very little.

Post-match statistics indicate Wolves had just two shots on target, which is simply not good enough.

The club remain on just three goals scored so far in the Premier League, making them by far the worst attacking side in the division.

And after the game, journalist Nathan Judah pointed out that Wolves are now actually the lowest scorers in the whole Football League.

That’s because League Two Gillingham found the net in their 1-1 draw with Crewe Alexandra.

A truly embarrassing statistic for Wolves given the talent in the squad

This is a statistic that truly shames Wolves.

To be the lowest goalscorers in the entire Football League by early October is massively worrying.

Wolves’ squad is packed with talented attackers. At least, it is on paper.

To have scored just three league goals so far is appalling, and is very clearly the biggest thing the new manager must address when he comes in.
