Mick McCarthy has warned his players to not be the team they were two years ago during their first season back in the Premier League - often putting in good performances, yet coming away with no points.
Last Saturday's fixture, which was against Tottenham Hotspur at Molineux, was one such performance in the manager's eyes.
"We played well but we lost and I don't want to be that team we were two years ago when we had heroic failure," said McCarthy.
"When you're playing well and having as much of the game as the opposition, probably more in fact, in the first half, especially in the Premier League, you need to take your chances or create one you can get a goal from."
And Wolves weren't without chances, most notably Karl Henry's curling shot which was saved by Brad Friedel's fingertips within the first 15 minutes of the match.
Whilst admiting it was no disgrace to lose to a resurgent Spurs, the former Republic of Ireland boss added: "For 70 minutes we were right in it and if we'd have scored when we had the chances, we could have nicked something."
"In those last 20 minutes we were made to look a bit daft."
