Wolves acting skipper Stephen Ward admits the negative atmosphere in and around Molineux is understandable given the team's poor home form this season.
A section of supporters staged a demonstration after the recent 5-1 home reversal by West Brom which led to manager Mick McCarthy being sacked.
Defender Ward, filling in as captain for the axed Roger Johnson, said: "The atmosphere is not easy. The lads said after the Blackburn game that it is not the best atmosphere to play in. Of course you can hear it but we've not given the supporters much to cheer about this year.
"We've not given ourselves anything to shout about so it's going to be like that every time we come here."
He added: "We are professional footballers, it's our job and whether things are going right or wrong, we've got to be big enough and strong enough to take the bull by the horns and play our own game."
