Kevin Foley hailed an “all-round professional performance” as Wolves made it four wins out of four against Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday.
Bakary Sako’s first half free kick was the difference between the two sides as the Molineux Men climbed to third in the table after the solid and confident display.
“I thought we did very well,” said Foley.
“We were up against a physical side but it was an all-round professional performance to get the lead and keep the ball and not get nervy towards the end.
“You always want a second goal because anything can happen at 1-0 and they are dangerous at set pieces and good in the air from free kicks and corners.
“But we managed to keep on top of them, and while a second goal would have been nice no one is complaining at a 1-0 win!
“I’d like to think seeing the game out shows that we are confident in that situation.
“We’ve got two very good players in the centre of the park with Karl and Tongo who are strong and can dictate the pace.
“All round I think everyone can be proud of their performance.”
The shutout was Wolves’ third consecutive league clean sheet as the solid base once again paved the way for maximum points.
Foley knows the team must maintain similar levels of organisation over the coming games, starting with Crystal Palace tomorrow night (7.45pm).
“It’s three clean sheets in a row now – the more the merrier!” he added.
“Clean sheets in this league can give you success but there is a long way to go and we can only take each game at a time.
“We have to be well organised.
“We’ve played with different combinations in our back four this season and most times they have worked.
“Everyone knows what the manager wants from us and at the moment there is some consistency in our game.”
