thumbnail Hello,

The club captain rejects reports that a group of players had urged the under-fire manager to change his tactics despite only having won one of their last nine games

Wolves captain Karl Henry has declared his support for Stale Solbakken following a poor run of form which has left the manager under pressure.

The Norwegian, who took over at Molineux in the summer, has overseen a run of one win in nine games, with boos from the home fans after Tuesday's 1-0 defeat to Milwall left the Championship side 18th in the table.

Following that loss, local press reports had suggested that several senior Wolves players had urged Solbakken to change his tactics during a team meeting on Wednesday, but Henry insisted to the club's official website: "What was in the report wasn't correct.

"We always have meetings after matches and are encouraged to have our say but we all know that the manager has the final responsibility.

"We all know what has happened is not good enough, it's a results-based business and the players' performances over the last nine games haven't reached the right level.

"We've been through testing times and we need results quickly. We think we are better than where we are at the moment but it's one thing saying it - we need to show it on the pitch.

"The manager, the coaches and players are all on the same page, we all have the same aim - promotion. We all know things need to improve quickly and they will."
