We Should Be Proud

Nuno Espirito Santo says his players should be proud following Friday’s 2-0 win over Fulham at Molineux.

First half goals from Romain Saiss and Leo Bonatini sealed the victory for Wolves - a win which extended Wolves lead to four points at the top of the Sky Bet Championship.


Speaking after Friday’s game, Nuno said that it was a good win and important win after a tough run of fixtures.


“It was a good win and I think it was a good performance,” the Wolves Head Coach said. 


“We knew that this was an important fixture after a number of games in a short period of time. 


“I think we managed the game well and put on a good performance in front of our pack. 


“We should be proud of what we’ve done but we have to keep going. 


“We are never comfortable, we can never be comfortable on the pitch, never - it’s the worst mistake that we can do. 


“I think controlling the situation and playing well - knowing that we have an opponent with quality in front of you. 


“Of course we have to defend but we are never comfortable. This word doesn’t exist for us.


“It’s hard work - controlling spaces and possession of the ball. 


“We have a defensive balance, it’s important that we keep a clean sheet again it is very important for us.”


Both of the Wolves goals came from dead ball situations, both taken by full-back Barry Douglas.


Nuno credited hard work on the training ground as well as the quality of the set-pieces following the two goals.


“The credit for our set-pieces has to go to the boys work that we’ve done at Compton and of course to the quality of the delivery,” Nuno said.


“It’s another way in which we can score but in the game we also had other chances and I think we produced enough to make an even bigger score.”


Wolves don’t have another fixture until November 18th away at Reading.


Nuno says that it is a good time for his side to refresh and recover following three games in a week.


“It’s now a good moment for us to rest and to recover - this cycle has been very, very hard for us.


“Three games in such sort time, it’s very hard but physically we have done well. 


“We have players going to international teams - we have Ruben (Neves) going with Portugal, it’s a deserved prize for the performance that he’s had. It’s a good moment to recover.”
