Connor wants fans' backing for Johnson

Wolves manager Terry Connor has urged fans to give their support to back-in-favour skipper Roger Johnson during Saturday's crunch home meeting with Bolton.

Johnson was axed by Connor immediately after he replaced sacked manager Mick McCarthy and then was fined after turning up to training the worse for wear.

He has struggled to win over supporters since his move from Birmingham last summer but Connor wants any anger towards the centre-back, who was recalled against Norwich, put to one side.

He said: "I want the fans to support Roger. He's done his thing and he's paid his dues.

"It's over and done with and done and dusted. Roger came back against Norwich, and, like the rest of the lads, he gave a good account of himself.

"I want the fans to get behind the team and all the players, and back them 100 per cent."
