MH bemoans ‘diabolical’ starts

The Premier League strugglers have fallen behind in the opening
three minutes of their last three league outings and lost every
game. Their recent trend of conceding early on continued at the
weekend when Luke Varney’s wonder goal gave Blackpool the lead en
route to a 2-1 success. They have won just two of their opening 14
league matches and find themselves five points adrift of fourth
from bottom Fulham. Wolves are battling for their top-flight lives
and Hahnemann knows their poor start to games is undermining Mick
McCarthy’s game plan. While Hahnemann and co are trying to stay
positive about their situation he has admitted the slow starts are
becoming a worry. “It feels terrible to keep conceding so early
on,” said Hahnemann. “A lot of it is down to bad luck. But it took
too long to get going. “It’s diabolical the way things are going.
You try not to let those early blows affect you but ultimately they
do. “The plan was to stay nice and solid for the first 10 minutes,
but bang, you are a goal behind, and when that happens regularly it
does affect your confidence a bit.”
