Incredible Character

Nuno Espirito Santo was delighted with his side’s character as they came from behind to run out 2-1 winners over Bristol City at Ashton Gate.

Ten man Wolves scored twice in the second half through Barry Douglas and Ryan Bennett to overturn the hosts’ lead and take all three points.

Speaking after the game, the Head Coach said: “First of all the congratulations go to the boys and for our fans. The way they all stuck together was incredible.

“They defended compactly and waited for the right moment. They were very brave today and the support was fantastic.

“The sending off changed everything but we reacted really well. We organised and Bristol struggled to create anything against our shape.

“We worked hard from one side to the other and picked the right moment to recover the ball.

“Bristol moved the centre half to play as a striker and try and play direct balls and cause us problems but we defended well.

“We got the first goal and the boys showed incredible character to press for another.

“The three points mean a lot. The way we came back. I’m really proud of the boys.

“That was for us and those fans. We have a long way to go but we are doing things the right way. We are growing as a team and growing as a club.”

Nuno also discussed comments made in the press ahead of this evening’s fixture and explained that they are not helpful for the game.

He said: “We are a team in the competition, we are not fighting against anybody. We are competing in each game.

“The kind of things that have been said like ‘let’s beat Wolves to help the competition’ doesn’t help the game.

“We are not fighting against each other so let’s stop with these things.

“Manager’s should worry about who they’re going to face and not the competition as a whole.”
