Ian Holloway says Conor Washington's early misses against Wolves proved costly as they fell to a 2-1 defeat.

Despite getting a goal in an impressive al-round display, the former Peterborough man missed two early opportunities to give the Hoops the lead, and Ollie says they could have been crucial.

Speaking after the game, Holloway said: “Unfortunately we had two chances and didn’t take them.

“It’s not his fault, but on another day that would have knocked the stuffing out of them – but you never know it might have annoyed them and got them going.

“But if we make those kind of chances in the games coming up, I believe we’ll take them and I believe others might not make as many chances as Wolves did against us.

“We had more than enough to trouble them but when I watch it back I’ll be kicking myself, saying ‘if only’.

“The nature of their two goals upset me. We almost gifted them. I was very upset at half-time but the lads gave a rousing response.”
