Wolverhampton 1-0 Brighton
Wolves narrow win against relegated Brighton was over-shadowed by demands for Glenn Hoddle's sacking and the board's resignation from supporters.

Kenny Miller scored the winner from the spot in the 31st minute after Paul McShane handled Mark Kennedy's corner.

But the Molineux crowd made their feelings clear with chants of "disaster", "Hoddle out" and "sack the board" throughout the game.

Jeremie Aliadiere and Colin Cameron hit the woodwork as Wolves dominated.

  • Wolves manager Glenn Hoddle:
    "As manager you take sole responsibility for results and you have to take fans' reaction on the chin.

    "I understand the fans want the club to do well and they're not happy but I'm made of stern stuff and hearing things like that makes me more determined.

    "The only way to turn around the crowd is with better results and it makes me more determined to get those results."

  • Brighton boss Mark McGhee:
    "Paul McShane said he got a nudge and that's why he handled it.

    "It wasn't a foul but it was enough for him to lose balance and lurch forward which meant his arm went up.

    "But I thought we still did enough to win the game because we played better than Wolves, we just didn't take any of the chances we made."
