Wolves boss Mick McCarthy conceded that the average age of his young squad was beginning to tell - but insisted his side just need a ''lucky break''to get them back to winning ways.
With an average age of just 22, Wolves might be forgiven a crisis of confidence with opponents raising their game against the league leaders.
But while McCarthy admitted Wolves' record of one win in nine league matches is a worry, he insisted confidence was not a problem.
Reflecting on the defeat - the second in successive Saturdays away from home - he said: "It is a concern. I think when the other teams win their games, which I am sure they will, we might not be top and it will put a different perspective on it because then suddenly we will be chasing.
"That may have added a bit of pressure on the squad - a squad which is the second or third youngest in the league - but then there was nobody questioning that when we were flying."
McCarthy now believes it may take a lucky break to get Wolves winning again.
Praising his side for once again battling after going a goal down at Burnley, he said: "Sometimes it takes a lucky break to get back on track but then you have to earn that lucky break."
