Nuno Espirito Santo says his side must take a “deep look inside themselves” after defeat to Huddersfield Town at Molineux on Sunday.
Wolves failed to build on their positive performance of a fortnight ago and suffered a third successive home defeat after Aaron Mooy’s strikes in each half.
Preparations begin immediately for Friday’s trip to Cardiff City and Nuno will study what went wrong for his side, who produced little in the way of chances.
“I start my work now. We prepared for the game, we had clear goals for the game and didn’t achieve them,” he said. “We must solve it this week, so the team is prepared for the next game.
“We are very clear what we want. We work very hard on how we want to play. Huddersfield get credit of course, they deserved to win, but we must look why.
“We knew happiness doesn’t last forever but it’s how we show our character, bouncing back. We must take a deep look inside of us and really work this week.”
Nuno made a double change at the break and saw his side come within a centimetre of equalising through Raul Jimenez, but their efforts weren’t enough as Huddersfield added a second.
“We were trying to reach the draw, but we didn’t do enough. We were too far apart from each other and when Huddersfield had possession we didn’t drop to organise and recover the ball well.
“We were slightly better in the second half but not enough. The team never felt together both offensively and defensively. My job is to find out why.
“We rushed, we didn’t have possession of the ball, they pressed very well but we had better solutions to find, which is the work we have to do now.
“We had chances but not enough for a team like we want. It was a bad performance and Huddersfield were the better team. It was not a good day for us, we did not perform well.”
It’s a busy week ahead for Nuno who will stick to his philosophy and not be too downhearted after a disappointing performance.
“We don’t change, this is the way we’ve been working. It’s the way that’s brought us here and we want to push forward, but we have to be better as a team and group.
“We came from a good performance (at Arsenal) and had a bad performance. This week we have to look at what we want.
“It was probably one of the worst performances we’ve had. We need to take a good look inside, find out why and prepare better.”
