Roger Johnson: Yet to win over all Wolves fans since his arrival from Birmingham last summer
Wolves boss Terry Connor has called on the club's supporters to give their backing to Roger Johnson.
The Wanderers captain was disciplined earlier this month after turning up for training in an unfit state, and Saturday's game at Norwich was his first appearance since.
Some home fans reacted badly when substitute Johnson's name was read out before defeats to Blackburn and Manchester United, and Connor wants to avoid a repeat for this weekend's crucial home clash with Bolton.
"I want the fans to support him - he's done his thing and he's paid his dues. It's over and done with, and done and dusted," Connor told the Express and Star.
"He came back against Norwich, and, like the rest of the lads, he gave a good account of himself. So I want the fans to get behind the team and all the players, and back them 100 per cent.
"Do people think I should leave him out because they might boo him? Whichever 11 starts the game, my message to them is back those players."
