Wolverhampton Wanderers fell to a 2-1 defeat away to Cardiff on Friday night in the Premier League and are now without a win in their last six games.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s side are in a real poor run of form after a positive start to the season and it doesn’t get any easier as they host Chelsea in midweek in their next match.
Wolves were fairly average in attack in the loss to Cardiff and Adama Traore failed to make the most of a rare start.
The Spanish winger moved to Molineux in the summer from Middlesbrough for £18million (BBC) and many considered it a gamble at the time.
He had failed to score in his previous 37 Premier League appearances during spells with Boro and Aston Villa, but Wolves saw enough in him to snap him up.
Traore has netted once so far this campaign for the West Midlands club, but his display against Cardiff summed up his brief Wolves career so far with lots of endeavour for very little reward.
He is a speed machine that could potentially beat anyone in the Premier League in a footrace, but the £18million gamble on signing him is yet to pay off.
The right-winger has to sharpen up his first touch and decision making if he wants to become a regular starter in Nuno’s team.
Wolves’ attempt to bolster the attack with Traore has backfired so far and the players need to try improve their form ahead of the January transfer window.
