Wolves Boss Gary O'Neil Frustrated at Lack of Attacking Options

Gary O'Neil has criticised the Wolves owners for not investing the in team in January, saying he had warned them about potential injuries hampering their season.

He told Sky Sports: "It's hard to win games in the Premier League with a full squad and we've got five players missing with a small squad, so credit to the players.

We've got 42 points which surpasses last year's total with all the restrictions placed on the playing squad finically by the club. To have achieved a better points tally than last season's is a fantastic achievement.

"I'm disappointed we're not able to push at this moment. We flagged to the club, warned them we were overloading the players because it was such a small group.

We warned them if we lost a few attacking players it would make a big difference. We flagged the situation at the time but the club weren't in a position to act on it or help us.

"Then two weeks after the window closes we are without any strikers, leaving us with young lads working their socks off and senior players having to play every minute of every game. It's a huge effort. Do I deserve credit? Of course. But the guys to get to 42 points with the difficulties we've had to deal with is a bigger achievement than what most would recognise."
