Wolves News: Coady expects further improvement

2 years ago

In the latest Wolves news, captain Conor Coady believes the team is only going to get stronger as they continue to adapt to the Premier League.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side won the Championship last term and the Portuguese coach has stuck with much of the squad that achieved that success.

Coady has retained his place at the heart of a back three, with Nuno starting with the same XI in all of his Premier League matches.

They have so far taken five points from four matches, drawing at home to both Everton and Manchester City, before a last-gasp win at West Ham last time out.

Sunday sees them welcome Burnley to Molineux and they are 4/5 to take the points with bet365, while the draw is 12/5 and the Clarets 15/4.

They then face Manchester United but have winnable games against the likes of Southampton and Crystal Palace on the horizon.

Captain Coady believes the West Midlanders have plenty of positives to take from the start of their season and is confident they will continue develop if they stick to the methods that have served them so well over the last 18 months.

The 25-year-old said: “I think our points tally is a fair reflection (of our performances) but at the minute it’s not so much about the points total, it’s about how we’re playing and the pleasing thing for me is we’ve got better during the games.

“We’ve not changed from last season – we have our wing-backs wide, our forwards in and we try and score goals. It’s as simple as that and it won’t change.

“We showed at West Ham how we want to play, as well as our trust in the manager.”

He added: “We’ve got total confidence in how the manager wants to play and how he wants to set us up.”
