Jamie O'Hara has called on the Wolves faithful to get behind their team when they face Wigan in Sunday's bottom-of-the-table clash.
Mick McCarthy's side began their Premier League campaign in fine style, notching victories over Blackburn and Fulham.
But they have failed to win in their eight games since to drop to 17th in the table, just two points above the relegation zone.
This has led some fans to vent their frustration on boss McCarthy, singing 'you're getting sacked in the morning' in the 2-2 draw with Swansea, but O'Hara has urged supporters to really get behind the side when they face the out-of-form Latics, who have lost seven on the bounce.
He told the Daily Star Sunday: ""It's difficult to deal with what goes on in the stands at times.
"It's tough on the manager and it's tough on the players."
"When that sort of thing happens it definitely can affect players. When the fans are behind us, it's great.
"We can get on the front foot and you get that extra five or 10 per cent. But when it's the other way round and they're on your backs, it can knock the stuffing out of you. It has the reverse effect.
"What happened against Swansea was mentally tiring for all of us.
"It's difficult for the fans because they expect the club to be progressing.
"But we have a lot of games left this season and a long way to go - and at home we really need their support.
"Because when they're rocking, this place is buzzing.
"We have some massive games coming up here now and we want to win them."
