Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Richard Stearman insists that the players will not dwell on their Johnstone's Paint Trophy defeat to Notts County.

Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Richard Stearman has insisted that earning promotion from League One is the club's number one target this season.

The Molineux outfit were dumped out of the Johnstone's Paint Trophy by Notts County on Tuesday night, but Stearman has said that the players will not dwell on their surprise defeat.

The 26-year-old told the Express & Star: "We've got to focus on the league now – that's the most important thing this season and we're looking forward to getting back into action.

"We want to win every game we play so we were disappointed to lose. But it does play second fiddle to the league and we're looking forward to the Coventry game."

Stearman has featured in six of the club's 10 League One fixtures this season.
