Conor Coady insists that the busy Christmas schedule of games is something he and his Wolves teammates will enjoy having experienced playing twice a week on numerous occasions last season.
Wolves face six matches in 21 days starting with the festive fixture against Tottenham Hotspur at Molineux on Sunday, before travelling to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United just over 48 hours later. But having fallen to Burnley last time out, the captain knows the squad has a lot to improve on if they are to get anything from their upcoming run of Premier League games.
On defeat to Burnley
“We’re disappointed. We know how tough it is coming here, we’ve come here plenty of times before and they’re a really tough team to play against.
“They play the ball long, they work off second balls, they’re great at crosses, but we’ve worked on it all week, so we’re massively disappointed with the goals we’ve conceded.
“We’ve looked at how Burnley play, but we didn’t have to because we’ve played them plenty of times before, so we knew coming in the way they play, and that’s something we need to adapt to as we’ve conceded two goals that you don’t want to concede.”
On bouncing back
“It’s something we’ve got to look at and get better, because we’ve played them plenty of times before, and it’s been a tough night again.
“We need to look at it and get better because that’s what we’re here to do, we want to improve. We’ll get back in training, work hard, improve, get better and look at where we’ve gone wrong because that’s the best way to get better and prepare.
“But we’ve got a regroup because we’ve got a massive amount of games coming up over Christmas and we need to be prepared for them.”
On the busy Christmas schedule
“We want to play as many games as possible, we played a lot of them over the last year and it’s something we’re used to and it’s something we want.
“We’ve got some massive games coming up now and we need to be ready for them, because if not, we’ll come unstuck. But we’ll improve, learn and go again.”
