Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Kevin Doyle has said that fans should offer them some hope of support, as they try to prevent relegation from the Premier league.

Wolves sacked manager Mick McCarthy a few weeks ago and were looking at the possibility of announcing his replacement prior to the match against Newcastle United.

However, as there were no one interested in taking the Wolverhampton Wanderers managerial job, the club have appointed the assistant manager as the caretaker one till the end of the season. It is a move that has worked against the club after they have suffered two heavy defeats on the trot.

Wolves lost 5-0 to Fulham last weekend, while this weekend they have lost 2-0 to fellow relegation threatened team Blackburn Rovers at the Molineux. The extremely poor home defeat has angered the Wolves supporters quite a lot, but striker Kevin Doyle has said that supporters should be patient as they are working extremely hard to fight against relegation.

Kevin Doyle also has said that the impatience from the fans is also one of the reasons there are unable to perform at their best. Junior Hoilett scored both goals for Blackburn Rovers, as they climbed out of the relegation zone.

“There is belief in the dressing room and the manager gave a very uplifting speech afterwards. He said we either fall out with each other now and never win a game again or we come in on Monday morning and work hard, do everything right, be positive, and go out to win next week. We can’t just throw our toys out of the pram. We can’t afford to do that – it is too important," striker Kevin Doyle said after the match. Wolves last victory in the Premier league came at the start of February when they won 2-1 against QPR.
