No dressing-room unrest - Connor

Wolves boss Terry Connor has stressed any signs of disharmony at the club are simply indicators of how his players are trying to push each other on in their battle to beat the drop.

Things are looking increasingly desperate for the Barclays Premier League basement boys, whose 2-1 defeat at Stoke on Saturday - their sixth successive loss - meant they remained six points adrift of safety with only six games left. The players' frustration at their plight appeared evident a week earlier when Wolves captain Roger Johnson and goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey squared up to each other on the field during the 3-2 home defeat to Bolton.

Following the Stoke match, their team-mate Stephen Ward said he did not feel there was "unrest" in the camp, suggesting that with any struggling side there will be "a couple of spats here and there" that are "nothing serious".

And asked if there was any dressing-room unrest, Connor said: "No - there are demands made of each other. It is a strong dressing room with some characters in there, but it is just the demands they place on each other - on the pitch, on the training field and sometimes in the dressing room.

"They are not all going to have the same opinion. As I said last week, the spat between Roger and Wayne was two players on the pitch heated, sweating, wanting their team to win and having a disagreement.

"Personally, I don't like to see it done in public, but it does happen. As long as we resolve that, move on from there and the players are fine with each other, that is all you can ask."
