Whilst he was obviously disappointed with the outcome of Thursday evening’s defeat at Leicester, Brian Carey still felt there were positives to be taken from the game.
The assistant manager believes that the performance at the high flying East Midlands club was Wolves’ best since he and Dean Saunders arrived almost four weeks ago.
Brian said: “I think we can take a lot of positives from Thursday night. We did OK in the first half although we didn’t defend the goal very well.
“But, after that, I felt that we dominated the game and that the least we deserved from it was to have taken a point. To lose was hard to take because we were the better team.
“Leicester have annihilated teams at the King Power Stadium this season – they are one of the strongest sides in the League. But we pushed them all way on Thursday night.”
The Leicester game was the fourth since the arrival at Molineux of the Saunders and Carey partnership and the number two says that patience is a key word in the coming weeks.
He explained: “Things weren’t going to happen overnight, there’s still a lot of work to do to realise what we are looking for from the players but, obviously, it’s imperative that we get some results and some points on the board.
“All of the players are ‘on-side’ as we are implementing our style of play and their efforts have been pretty much spot on.
“We played well enough at Leicester but we will be looking to improve on that, especially at the back. We have to keep the door shut and keep some clean sheets.
“We did look to bring in some fresh faces to liven things up during the transfer window. But the loan window opens in a week so maybe something will happen then.”
