Wolves striker Kevin Doyle has described the club's current five-match losing streak in the Premier League as a nightmare.
Mick McCarthy's side were beaten 2-0 by West Brom in the Black Country derby on Sunday, moving them down to 16th place in the division.
Their winless run now stretches back to the end of August, with their last success coming when Wolves claimed a 2-0 victory over Fulham at Molineux.
That game marked Doyle's only goal for the club this season and, with just two goals scored in their last six games, McCarthy has problems up front as well as in defence.
Doyle told the club's website: "It gets to you after one game, two games, three and four games - and when it's five games it's a nightmare and it's not ideal.
"We played Swansea at home this week and we have to look to win that one, that's the only way we can look at it."
Doyle also admitted that Wolves could have no complaints after being beaten by their near neighbours.
Chris Brunt gave the Baggies a half-time lead before Peter Odemwingie sealed the victory with 15 minutes remaining.
Doyle said: "We probably deservedly got beaten, to be honest. We started well but they got their goal.
"In the second half we were a bit better but they got their second goal when we were just starting to get into the game. And goals change games.
"We just had two chances in the game really - other than that we huffed and puffed, but we didn't really look like scoring.
"Albion have got big, strong lads at the back and they made the game difficult."
