Wolves have been playing at a ferocious pace under O'Neil but have found themselves fading in the latter stages of games.

O'Neil has revealed he has made changes to the 'training structure', but when asked if the fitness levels are at the right level, he said: "It would be easy to say no off the back of the Liverpool game, where we were forced into a few changes and the few of the boys looked a bit leggy.

"But that is an extreme week where we have players travelling an awful long way, it's an early kick-off and some of them were only back in the country on Friday.

"There are circumstances that maybe make that looks worse than it is, but I do think we have been forced into more subs than I would like. Not that I wouldn't have made them anyway, but I don't like being forced into them. Ideally you'd like everyone be able to go for 90 and then I choose when we change them.
