Wolves fans deliver verdict on Paul Lambert future after Reading defeat
By Amir Mir
Wolves were beaten 2-1 at Reading in the Championship on Saturday afternoon – and fans want manager Paul Lambert sacked.
That defeat against the promotion chasers means Lambert has now lost six games on the bounce in all competitions and five in a row in the league.
As a result, they are one place and one point above the relegation zone but they have played two games less than those occupying the bottom three spots.
Nonetheless, supporters were not pleased with their manager and were asking for a change despite the former midfielder taking over the reigns in November.
Lambert replaced Italian Walter Zenga who was fired after a bad run of results and it seems the fans want their current senior man to follow suit.

Supporters pointed out that Lambert has accumulated 18 points from his first 17 matches in charge of the club.
They were finding that stat laughable because their former boss Dean Saunders who was part of their last relegation to League One, picked up more points during that time.
As a result, the Wolves faithful were annoyed and questioning how the club is in a mess despite spending £13million in January.
That was spent on Helder Costa who was already on loan at the club, but in truth, only one player was purchased in January and that was Ben Marshall.
He started his first game for the club against Reading and got on the scoresheet but fans did not hold back on their players as they believe they are to blame too.
Overall, supporters were beginning to get worried about the club’s lack of form and the man in charge of turning their fortunes around.
Here is a selection of their messages on Twitter:
Enough is enough.
You don't lose 6 on the spin & be 1 point above relegation zone unless there's a deep rot.
Lambert & Thelwell out #wwfc

Are we actually any better off under Lambert than we was with Zenga? Results are no better! £13m spent on one player and could go down #wwfc
