Wolves fans on Twitter have slammed Benik Afobe for his performance in the 2-0 win against Derby at a foggy Molineux on Wednesday night.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s men controlled the game against the Rams, but fans were let down by the display of Afobe, 25, after he failed to score a number of chances.
The former Arsenal forward had a number of opportunities, especially in the air, as Wolves piled wave after wave of attack on the Derby defence.
However Afobe failed to capitalise on any of those chances to add to his goalscoring tally on his second loan spell at Molineux.
Most Wolves fans were clearly let down by the 25-year-old, with one angry supporter claiming that the striker looked as though he had “forgotten how to play football”, however others would only comment about how he reacted to Ruben Neves’ wonder goal.
Here is a selection of their tweets:

From a good Milan source, Andre Silva is staying at Milan. Who should be #WWFC number 9 striker next season? Afobe is not a top premier league striker. (I still think we'll sign Silva).

@tim_spiers_Star – you should see the look on Afobe's face when he realizes it was a goal.

Afobe has made 13 appearances in the Championship and scored four goals since re-joining Wolves on loan from Bournemouth in the January transfer window.
As reported by the Express and Star, the Championship leaders have the option to buy Afobe permanently in the summer.
They are said to be paying 100 per cent of his wages during his loan from Bournemouth having also paid a £1million fee for the striker that they sold to the Cherries for £10million in January 2016.
