Neto on Man United draw and getting his chance

Pedro Neto insists Wolves will be working hard to make it into the fourth round of the Emirates FA Cup when they travel to Old Trafford for their replay against Manchester United next week.

After Saturday’s third round tie at Molineux finished all square, Wolves and the Red Devils will go head-to-head once again, and Neto is hoping to be on the right side of the result to make it into the next stage of the competition, despite an already hectic workload on the players so far this season.

On goalless draw with United

“It was a difficult game and I think both teams did some good work. Unfortunately, we didn’t win – which is what we want – but now we will try to win in the replay.

“We tried to win today, we couldn’t get the result, so now we try to win there and go to the next round.”

On Doherty’s disallowed goal

“I didn’t see it so well, I didn’t see whether it hit him on the hand or not, but if it’s not a goal, it’s not a goal and we have to continue to play. I think we did that and gave good work.”

On player rotation

“We are a very good group that work hard and be focused on the game in front of you.

“I think all the players that had their chances out there today did some good work and now we are focused already on the next game and we will be prepared.”

On positive record against United

“It’s difficult for us to play against a team like Manchester United, but Manchester can’t win against us because we are a very good team who defend very well.

“We play well on the counter-attack and it’s difficult to win against us, not only Man United, but for all the teams that we play, it’s difficult because we work and try to reach the best level we can.”

On overcoming the Christmas schedule

“It’s difficult when you have too many games in two or three weeks, but we work hard every day to be able to perform at the best level.

“We have to work hard because some players have had to play all four games in a row over Christmas and new year, and to be able to play at this level during these weeks and this short space of time – game after game – you have to work very hard.”
