The Molineux atmosphere, as Wolves dramatically beat Leeds United in 2015, was one of the best goalscoring hero Nouha Dicko experienced in old gold.
One third of the Dicko-Afobe-Sako striking trio, affectionately remembered by the Wolves faithful, Dicko shone in the latest Big Match Revisited on Wolves TV, as Kenny Jackett’s side edged the seven-goal thriller with Leeds at Molineux.
The forward joins the likes of Kevin McDonald, Carl Ikeme and Jack Price on Monday night at 8pm, as Wolves TV revisits the 4-3 win, giving supporters a fresh insight into a game which kept Wolves’ Championship play-off hopes alive at the time.
On his famous striking partners
“It was great, especially in that game, the fans were buzzing and singing, so it was an amazing feeling.
“Benik (Afobe), (Bakary) Sako, Rajiv (van La Parra), (James) Henry – we had good, attacking players and for me, when Benik came it felt like a blessing because we complemented each other really well.
“He was someone who liked to come in between the lines, and I was running in behind, so we had that connection that you need when you play with another striker. It was great for me to play with him and you had Rajiv and Sako, who, on their day, nobody can stop.”
On a great game personally
“It was a great game. The first goal was quite lucky, it’s not something I planned. The ball came and I instinctively tried to score, and that was the only way I could score. Fortunately for me, it went in. It was a great game – I remember the atmosphere was amazing.”
On his second goal
“It was one of those days when everything goes for you, you don’t think, you just do something and it works. I remember Bakary (Sako) gave me a good pass, then I felt I had the time to take a touch, but I just tried to shoot and it went in and was a good goal. It was a good day.”
On his style of play
“As a manager, you want your players to work hard, so that’s something he wanted from us. It’s something I do naturally, chase and try to make it difficult for defenders. That’s what I’m good at, that’s what I can bring, and that’s what I was doing. It was good for us.”
On missing Wolves
“I do. They were great times and, when you see where the club is now, you wish you were still there, but it was probably the best time of my career and I do miss it.”
