Coady on the positives and learning from mistakes

Conor Coady insists Wolves must take the positives and learn from their mistakes following Thursday’s defeat to Liverpool.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side became the first team to score against the league leaders in eight matches and more than matched their opponents for long periods at Molineux. So, while never satisfied after losing matches, Coady has looked at the positive aspects of Wolves’ game and wants errors to be eradicated come the return of the Premier League on 1st February.

On matching the leaders

“They’re world class, I think everybody sees that, but we wanted to stick to our game plan, and we did that. We stayed in the game, stuck with it. We always say, when we’re drawing, we shouldn’t get beat, but we did.

“We felt like we deserved something from the game, but when you give them space, they’re going to punish you and they did. It’s disappointing from our point of view, because we went toe-to-toe with them and I thought we were excellent.

“I thought we moved the ball well, we controlled it in spells and played some good stuff, so we’re massively disappointed. We matched them in spells and scored a fantastic goal. I feel like we can take positives from the game.”

On the belief showing

“We stuck to our principles, what we do. We didn’t panic when we conceded. I thought in the first-half we played some good stuff, we might not have created much, but I felt like we were in control of what we were doing. We conceded from a set piece which was disappointing.

“We believed we could go on and win it (after equalising). I felt like we were in control at the time. It was a fantastic goal, a brilliant cross from Adama, and when Raul gets in those positions, he’s going to score. It was huge for us, but we switched off and we’ll look back at it.”

On learning from mistakes

“The manager speaks fantastically well, we listen to him and always try to take his ideas on board, but we got beat and felt like we deserved something.

“We’ve got to take the positives and learn from the negatives. We’re conceding too many at the minute, which is disappointing, but we’ve matched them in spells, the formation and the way we played hurt them, but you can’t take pride from getting beat.”
