Mick McCarthy bemoaned a 'dreadful' start from Wolves following the 3-0 home defeat to Queens Park Rangers and admitted the supporters were right to voice their frustration.
QPR ran out comfortable winners at Molineux as Joey Barton, Alejandro Faurlin and DJ Campbell scored to underline their superiority on the day.
Wolves found themselves 2-0 down inside the opening ten minutes and McCarthy conceded that, apart from goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey, nobody could hold their head up high in the home dressing room.
"We started dreadfully. There's only Wayne out of all the squad, me included, that can come away from that game with any credit because our performance was really bad," McCarthy told Sky Sports.
"QPR played well, I don't want to take it away from them, but it was a really poor performance from us.
Too hard a task
"I didn't see it coming. If I had, I would have done something about it.
"Having lost one goal was bad enough but to concede a second in such a way as we did, just gave us too hard a task.
"We didn't get about the pitch and tackle and work. They did it better than us."
McCarthy insisted he did not have an issue with the supporters booing Wolves' performance as they are entitled to respond negatively when the players do not perform.
"We deserved the boos and the jeers. We didn't play well enough," said the manager.
"They have paid their hard-earned money to come and watch us and I have no problem with that at all, when we play as badly as that."
