Wolves goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey has been told to forget about his errors against Manchester City by his supportive team-mates.

The Wales international endured a mixed afternoon at the Etihad Stadium on Saturday as Wolves lost 3-1 to table-topping City.

He shone in the first half, producing a string of fine saves to keep the scores level.

Hennessey was, however, at fault for City's opener as Sergio Aguero blocked his attempted clearance and Edin Dzeko returned the ball into an empty net.

He then failed to hold onto a David Silva shot and Aleksandar Kolarov doubled City's advantage.

Great saves

No-one at Molineux is pointing the finger of blame at the 24-year-old, though, with Richard Stearman and Adlene Guedioura keen to offer their support to the highly-rated shot-stopper.

Stearman said: "Wayne is one of the best keepers in the Premier League and he proved that again. He'll be one of our players of the season."

Guedioura told the club's official website: "Wayne had been brilliant before the first goal. If you watch the game again you will see the great saves he made.

"We are all behind him and it's not a problem. Hopefully he can forget this or at least just learn and move on because he is still young."
