Understand the frustration

Danny Batth discussed the team's frustration after Wolves' 0-0 draw with Rotherham United at Molineux on Saturday afternoon.

Both sides had opportunities to break the deadlock but neither could convert and the game finished goalless.


Speaking after the game, Batth said: “It was difficult because Rotherham sat back. They really did grind and slow it down as much as possible.


“I thought we were more constructive and passed the ball well, we created more chances and the stats show that.


“There was some last ditch defending from them today, Sylvain Deslandes had a great chance, we’ve hit the bar – there was forward momentum from us today and I thought we were very unlucky not to win.


“I can understand the frustration, the fans want value for money. I’m the same, I’d love us to win 3-0 every week.


“Rotherham came here with a game plan today and it was difficult for us to break them down."


The skipper acknowledged the home support and revealed how the squad want to return to winning ways for the Molineux faithful.


“It’s difficult at the moment," he continued: "We are where we are but we’ve got to try and stay positive and really try to bring that football through.


“When we’re winning at home there’s not a crowd like it in the Championship and we want to get back to that.


“We want to build the momentum here for next season."


The defensive line-up was changed for Saturday's game, with Sylvain Deslandes brought in at left back and Dominic Iorfa moved over to partner Batth in central defence.


“I enjoyed it. I’ve played with Dom a lot so we’re used to each other," said the captain.


“It’s another positive for the club that there’s another player that can play centre back.


“I thought Sylvain was excellent, he stuck with it for the whole game and he was unlucky not to score near the end.


“We’ve got such young squad, even on the bench. For Bright Enobakhare and Sylvain, they’re learning their way.


“It’s a great positive that we’ve got young players coming through, it speaks volumes for the Academy.


“At the same time, the need help, they need experienced heads around them. It’s just getting that right blend."
