Paul Lambert has stated that Wolves need “a bit of help” when the transfer window opens in January and that he has been promised funds to spend.

The former Premier League boss, who saw his side lose his debut home fixture 2-0 to Sheffield Wednesday at the weekend, has the task of guiding the club away from the relegation zone.

The Midlands side are one place above the drop zone and have not won a Championship game since they beat Brentford 3-1 on September 24.

That victory came under former manager Walter Zenga who was sacked in early November and replaced by former Aston Villa boss Lambert.

Ahead of Wolves’ trip to Queens Park Rangers on Thursday night, Lambert revealed what was discussed between him and the hierarchy as they plan for survival this term.

“I think we need a bit of help,” said Lambert, as quoted by the Birmingham Mail. “I have spoken to the owners and to Kevin who has been great about it.

“The important thing is we sing off the same hymn sheet and we all recognise what we are trying to do.

“Ideally we have to get one or two who know the league and I think that is important. When you are in any league you have to realise what you are involved in.”

Former Celtic midfielder Lambert will want to stamp his authority on the club and clearly has the backing of the owners and sporting director Kevin Thelwell.

Lambert’s side sit in in 21st place in the Championship table on 18 points from 18 game and they have picked up one point during the Scotsman’s first two games in charge.

Wolves signed 13 players during the summer transfer window following their takeover from Chinese owners Fosun International.

One of the players signed was Monaco winger Ivan Cavaleiro who signed for a club-record fee of £7 million.

But the Portuguese winger has managed just one goal and two assists in 13 Championship games this season.
