Wolves skipper Conor Coady admitted that he and his team-mates were ‘gutted’ not to take three points from Saturday’s one-sided encounter with Brighton at Molineux, but said the desire to learn from setbacks is as strong as it was earlier in the season.
Wolves are nearing the end of a hugely impressive first campaign back in the Premier League, but with just four league games left to play, Coady is determined that his side continues to take valuable lessons from every game.
He acknowledged that they would be forced to do so from the 0-0 draw against the Seagulls, in which the relegation-threatened visitors allowed Wolves plenty of the ball but defended stubbornly to frustrate Nuno Espirito Santo’s side and take home a point.
On being held at home
“It’s a frustrating result, but at the same time I think we played quite well to be honest. We’ve opened them up a few times and created chances, so we’re gutted to only come away with a point, as we felt we deserved the win in the end.”
On the performance as a whole
“We just can’t seem to score against Brighton! We had chances that on another day would go in. I felt that we probably needed to score in the first half really, to open them up a bit, but we didn’t manage to do that. But we dug in and kept going.
“We just needed that rub of the green really; maybe for one of those chances where Diogo has hit the woodwork to go in. I thought we played some good stuff at times but we just needed that little bit of luck.”
On the week in Marbella
“This week was really important for us. It’s always important when we go out there, but we’re never there for a bit of fun. We go out there and we do it properly - we train right, we enjoy spending time with each other and we want to show that we have come back revitalised, which I think we’ve done today.
“To come away without getting a goal and that win today is disappointing, but things only ever become concerns if you don’t learn from them. We need to make sure we regroup and we go again. These four remaining games are important to us and that starts with Arsenal on Wednesday.
“We look forward to every single game we play. Arsenal are a fantastic team, but we have to look forward to it. We’ll look at their strengths and weaknesses and be ready come Wednesday, when we’ll have to perform and create chances like we know we can.”
