Cardiff boss Neil Warnock held frank talks with his players after heavy home defeats to Watford and Everton and told them to "look in the mirror".
The Bluebirds dropped into the Premier League relegation zone with 10 games left to play after losing 5-1 to the Hornets and 3-0 to the Toffees.
"I had a chat with them all and put my point of view forward about the remainder of the season," Warnock said ahead of Saturday's trip to Molineux to face Wolves.
"After that they had a meeting of their own, and I was quite pleased about that. When you do make mistakes you don't tend to look in the mirror, you tend to look around. All I've asked is for them to look in the mirror."
The Bluebirds were promoted alongside Wolves from the Sky Bet Championship last season but Warnock's side find themselves battling relegation, while Nuno Espirito Santo's team are 15 points ahead of them in seventh.
Cardiff will be boosted by the return of midfielder Victor Camarasa as they look to put back-to-back defeats behind them on Saturday.
"Nuno has done a great job," Warnock added. "He's my missus' favourite manager - he's a lovely man as well.
"We always have good games against them and I hope we can put in a good performance, not like the last two.
"We've still got a couple of knocks, but Victor is back into the squad. There's one or two doubts but nothing untoward. I'll have a chat with Victor, he's trained and he'll be involved."
Warnock questioned the character of Camarasa on Monday as he bemoaned being instructed by "physios from abroad" over his fitness.
"I think I've said enough on that," Warnock said. "[I've been told] we should keep it in house.
"He was disappointed he couldn't play in the last few games, you're not going to get less than 100 per cent from him and he's got so much ability - we've missed that. He's a game-changer."
