Jez Moxey knows Wolves' performances have fallen short of acceptable standards this season

Wanderers are hanging on to their Championship status by a thread as they go into the final day of fixtures three points and an inferior goal difference from safety. Dean Saunders must lead his side to victory over in-form play-off contenders Brighton at the Amex Stadium and hope both Peterborough and Barnsley lose, while also turning around a four-goal swing, to stand a chance of survival.

Moxey told the club's official website: "We understand supporters' anger and frustrations and at the end of the season we will attempt to address the problems that have caused our downward spiral. The chairman (Steve Morgan) remains committed to help put these issues right. He wants a brighter future for Wolves and the supporters."

He added: "It goes without saying that Saturday's loss to Burnley felt like a devastating blow for everyone who loves Wolves.

"We have no illusions about the immediate future as the odds of remaining in the Championship are slim. However, with one game remaining the players have a duty to the club and its supporters to play one last match against Brighton, secure a win and hope against all hopes that other results go our way.

"As we've said previously, this season has been disastrous and everyone here is apologetic and regretful about the position the club is now in - facing relegation into League One with one match remaining is not acceptable for any Wolves side, let alone one that was in the Premier League a year ago."

The frustrations of around 300 or so angry Wolves fans boiled over as they invaded the Molineux pitch after Saturday's 2-1 home defeat to Burnley - actions being investigated by West Midlands Police and the club.

Amid the ugly scenes central defender Roger Johnson appeared to be jostled and stewards attacked while the home dugout was smashed, advertisement hoardings were ripped down and attempts were even made to bring down a goalpost.

Moxey added: "As West Midlands Police have said, it was a disappointing end to what had been a trouble-free fixture. Wolves fans have given the players and the club tremendous support and have behaved exceptionally well all season."
