Wolves manager Connor urges fans to get behind skipper Johnson

Wolves boss Terry Connor has implored the clubs supporters to show faith in captain Roger Johnson.

The former Birmingham City defender was disciplined by the club for showing up to training under the influence of alcohol earlier in the month and has been used sparingly since.

Whilst coming as a substitute in recent matches against Blackburn Rovers and Manchester United, Wolves fans have booed and jeered Johnson but Connor is hoping that can be avoided from now on after he started in the loss at Norwich City last weekend.

"I want the fans to support him - he's done his thing and he's paid his dues. It's over and done with, and done and dusted," Connor told Express & Star.

"He came back against Norwich, and, like the rest of the lads, he gave a good account of himself. So I want the fans to get behind the team and all the players, and back them 100 per cent.

"Do people think I should leave him out because they might boo him? Whichever 11 starts the game, my message to them is back those players."
