Mixed emotions for Doherty after goalless draw

While taking the positives of a clean sheet, Matt Doherty was disappointed Wolves couldn’t find a way through against Brighton & Hove Albion on Saturday.

Wolves couldn’t break down their visitors at Molineux, who held their shape throughout the 90 minutes, leaving Doherty and his teammates frustrated. However, the draw extended Wolves’ unbeaten Premier League run to five and Doherty took some solace from keeping the Seagulls out at the other end.

On struggling to break Brighton down

“It was pretty difficult out there. They maintained a good shape and we found it difficult to create chances.

“Whatever shape they had, they stayed nice and compact. They made us go out wide and we didn’t create too many chances.

“They had a game plan and stuck to it really well. Hence, we had shots from outside of the box and didn’t create too much.”

On keeping a clean sheet

“We didn’t concede, that was kind of the goal at the start of the game, keep a clean sheet and see if we can win the game, but we didn’t manage to do that.

“The more clean sheets you have, the more chance you have of winning. That is a positive, but we didn’t win the game.”

On having high aspirations

“At the start of the season you always have ambitions. With the manager and players we have, we’re quite an ambitious team, so the position we’re in now isn’t a huge shock to us.

“We just have to make sure we keep going, keep winning as many games as possible and see where it takes us at the end of the season.”
