Leeds boss Jesse Marsch admits he is struggling to pinpoint the reasons behind his side’s recent struggles.
The Whites slumped to another disappointing defeat yesterday when beaten 3-2 by Fulham at Elland Road, despite taking an early lead.
Marsch, 48, is now under huge pressure to turn things around and the American has resisted the urge to direct blame at his players.
He said: "It’s difficult to explain why we can’t capitalise and we give certain things away, but I’m not finger-pointing, I’m looking directly at myself.
"I’m taking responsibility. I’m trying to push them to understand how to get better and we have to demand that now for the next game.
"We have to do everything we can again to try to figure out how to get the win."
Next up for the Yorkshire outfit is a tricky trip to Anfield on Saturday evening.
Wolves defender Nathan Collins admits he was left mortified by Sunday's humiliating 4-0 home loss to Leicester.
Now sat joint-bottom of the Premier League after 12 games, the Midlands outfit are firmly embroiled in the relegation picture — and Collins is under no illusions how grave the situation is.
"It’s not good enough, end of," the ex-Burnley defender said. "It’s nowhere near where we need to be. It’s a shambles, a poor performance.
"It was embarrassing playing that, I feel ashamed, for me and the players, and we need a reaction.
Steve Davis has been put in charge of first-team affairs at Molineux on an interim basis after the sacking of Bruno Lage earlier this month.
And Collins insists the current crop of personnel are capable of turning things around.
"I don’t think it can get much worse, I think we can get better," he added. "There’s so much quality in this dressing room to get better and I think we will.
"We’ve gone so low, we can only bounce back up. It’s my job and the other leaders in the group to get us going and get performances out of us."
Baggies eye Corberan
West Brom want ex-Huddersfield boss Carlos Corberan to become their new manager, according to the BBC.
The report suggests that both Corberan, 39, and the Baggies are keen to make a deal work, yet an official agreement still needs to be reached.
Corberan worked wonders with the Terriers to guide them to last year's Championship play-off final, where they were beaten 1-0 by Nottingham Forest.
The Spaniard then left the club over the summer citing a lack of ambition, before joining Greek giants Olympiakos who sacked him after just 11 games in charge.
It has been a horrendous start to the season for West Brom, who sit 23rd in the second tier having won just two of 16 league games.
Bailey's rallying call
Aston Villa need to make sure their emphatic defeat of Brentford was no flash in the pan, according to winger Leon Bailey.
The Jamaican, 25, opened the scoring in Villa’s 4-0 rout of Brentford yesterday — a first win in five for the East Midlands outfit, who sacked former boss Steven Gerrard on Thursday evening.
Bailey said: "I think it was brilliant in terms of how we played as a team, how we were there for each other.
"As we went back into the dressing room after the game, we saw a clip of the 89th minute where they had a corner, they countered and the whole team was sprinting behind the ball.
"And for us, that shows we’re a good team, we know what we’re about and that’s what we need to win games.
"Hopefully this can be the mentality moving forwards."
Grecians grab Caldwell
League One side Exeter have confirmed the appointment of Gary Caldwell as their new manager.
The Scot, 40, takes the reins at St James Park after former boss Matt Taylor was headhunted by Championship outfit Rotherham earlier this month.
A 55-cap international in his playing days, Caldwell memorably guided Wigan to promotion from the third tier in 2015-16 but has since suffered mixed fortunes in charge of Chesterfield and Partick Thistle.
He inherits a Grecians side who sit eighth in League One and will be in the dugout for tomorrow night’s trip to Derby.
