Wolves boss O'Neil sends message to fans after Cup exit

Wolves boss Gary O'Neil has urged fans to stick with them after last night's Carabao Cup defeat.

Wolves were 2-0 ahead at Ipswich before losing 3-2.

Asked about a message to the support, O'Neil said: "To stick with the group.

"We are six weeks in, with a game every five or six days, to a process. There is no magic wand.

"I can guarantee you, when I arrived the place was not running perfectly and ready to go into a Premier League season. There are a lot of things that need fixing.

"I sit here and answer the questions and I'm willing to take responsibility, but the facts are you need some time to put things in place.

"That did not look like a team that I've worked with for very long, which it isn't.

"Do I accept that we need to get results? Of course. Do I want the fans to enjoy every game we play and come away supporting the players? Of course.

"I'm going to work tirelessly to make sure we get it there and we will get it there, but the transfer window is closed and we need to get the maximum out of the group."
