Wolves goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey insists he will be unfazed by his error that led to Manchester City's first goal on Saturday.

The Wales international's clearance was charged down by Sergio Aguero before the ball bounced to Edin Dzeko to shoot into an empty net in the 3-1 win for Roberto Mancini's side.

Wolves held out until 52 minutes before conceding the goal and the defeat left them without a top-flight win in eight games.

Hennessey has played in all ten of Wolves' games this season, but it has been in attack where Mick McCarthy's side have struggled.

They have a crunch clash on Sunday against Wigan who are rooted to the foot of the Premier League table.

But Hennessey believes he will not be affected by last weekend's mistake although he has accepted his role in the defeat at the Etihad Stadium.


He told the Express and Star: "I thought I'd done quite well up until the goal but then it was a mistake.

"Kicking is one of my strengths and it's never happened to me before.

"I was feeling good with the saves I'd made in the first half. I know on another day I would just whack the ball clear.

"I was disappointed with it but I won't let it bother me."
