Late drama relieves Coady

Conor Coady admitted that there was a certain element of relief mixed in with the jubilation after Diogo Jota's late winner against Leicester City at Molineux on Saturday.

Wolves had led 2-0 and 3-2 but found themselves heading into injury time on level terms with their visitors, before Jota calmly finished a Raul Jimenez cross to complete his hat-trick, claim victory and send fans, players and manager alike into rapturous celebration. Coady conceded afterwards that it was a situation that they would have rather not found themselves in after holding the lead for the majority of the game.

On post-match emotions

"It was relief - pure and utter relief. We should never have found ourselves in that position to be honest - to concede three goals at home isn't good from our point of view.

"You can understand the elation, and we're obviously ecstatic to win a game like that, but we said at half-time that we needed to manage the game right, and we didn't do that.

"It becomes tough when they've got the first goal and they've got their tails up, so it was a tough day. Leicester are a good side but the goals weren't good enough from our point of view, and we shouldn't have been in that situation."

On the overall performance

"I thought we were really good in the first half - we played a lot in their half and we pressed well. But then like I say, we said at half-time that we needed to manage the game well and we've not done it, so we need to look at that and get better."

On the front two

"The two front boys are incredible - they really are fantastic players. The way they linked up today, the way they moved the ball, the way they dragged their centre halves around was a pleasure for everyone to watch. They're sensational footballers.

"A Premier League hat-trick is incredible for Diogo. He's come up against Wes Morgan today who's a really top Premier League centre half and he's held him off, he's held the ball up and proved that he's so strong for a little fella.

"I'm so happy for him because of what he's done for the team. We know how good he is and we know what he brings to the team - his work-rate and his running off the ball, as well as his goals. He gives absolutely everything to this football club and he deserves today."
