Despite scoring his first Premier League goal in gold and black, Francisco Trincao was unable to help his side to victory as a 10-man Wolves fell to a controversial loss against Leeds United.
The Portuguese came off the bench mid-way through the first-half in place of the injured Ruben Neves, and made an instant impact by setting up Jonny for the opener before making it two before half-time, but the game turned on its head when Raul Jimenez was given his second yellow card.
But Trincao insists attention has already turned to the next Premier League clash with Aston Villa after the international break, as Wolves look to bounce back immediately.
On a first Premier League goal and assist
“I’m trying to give my best always, every time I’m on the pitch, and this is one more. I always try to help the team and to get the points.
“Unfortunately, we weren’t able to do that today.”

On the loss to Leeds
“We did a great first-half, the second-half we were maybe a little bit lower on the pitch, in regards to our positions, but this is football.
“It was a tough game. Playing with one less man is very difficult. I think we deserved to win. We created a lot of chances in the first-half and we played really well.
“But we have to recover from this result, focus on the next game and give a better one to our fans next time.”
On Jimenez’s sending off
“It’s difficult to play with 10 men, but we have to deal with that. It’s football. We are ready for that every time.
“We have to give our best and try to win the game. But it was difficult because we played against a good team this evening.”
