We may have suffered a further setback in the race for a top-four place with defeat at Wolves, but Sokratis remains convinced we can still finish above our rivals.
The Greek defender scored a late consolation at Molineux, but the damage was done in the first half when the hosts scored three unanswered goals.
"I think we lost some easy balls," Sokratis said afterwards. "We already knew that they were a very good team on the counter-attack but for 20 or 25 minutes we were playing well. We had control of the game, possession of the ball, but they played very well on the counter-attack.
"It’s not time to find excuses. We have to look at the next three games where we need to win all three to get nine points. We’ll see if we can be in the top four. I trust my team 100 per cent, all of the players. I think we can do it.
"There’s not a bad mentality - we won two away games in the last 10 days. [But] we all take responsibility. We’re not stupid and we know that we didn’t play well. We now have three chances and we have to win all the games.
"Of course [we get angry]. The players want to play in the Champions League, we like winning and we want to be there. It’s not easy. Today was a bad moment for us. We cannot change it now because the game is finished, so now we look towards the next game.
"It’s a difficult game. We know that now the chance could go, so we have to take the three points in all three games. I hope that we win on Sunday."
