We are improving

Jon Dadi Bodvarsson believes the squad are responding to a change in tempo on the training pitch.

Relfecting on the weeks since Paul Lambert arrived as Head Coach, the striker explained that the messages off the pitch are much clearer, creating a positive response on the pitch.


He said: "Well I think one of the biggest differences is the work rate and the tempo in our game.


"We are playing much faster in my opinion, we are defending better as a unit. Defensively we have become much better.


"We are working on both sides of our game, attacking and defending at the moment and I think it is improving.


"Paul Lambert has come with a plan and it is clear.


"There is a clear message for all the guys in the team what their job is on the field and I think everybody is taking it very very positively and I think we are improving a lot."


Wolves' first game with Lambert in charge was away at Preston last weekend where the side's shared a 0-0 draw in well-contested game at Deepdale.


"It wasn’t a pleasure for the fans to watch," claimed Bodvarsson before adding: "There weren’t a lot of chances in it but I think we took a lot of positives from that game. We were really good defensively and good in possession of the ball." 


"We held the ball up well, but I think it was just in the last third of the pitch where we needed to be a bit more clinical. Other than that I think we are improving.


"I am not just saying that because I am in a press conference. I think it is improving a lot and like I said, everyone has their job on the field and the messages are much more clearer now and I think all of the guys are taking it very very well."


The striker looked back over Wolves' recent run of games and, when asked if he could pinpoint a reason behind the poor run, he replied: "I think it's just that there were a lot of rotations in the team, it was not often that we had the same team as before.


"Obviously a team always has to rotate at certain times but sometimes we did it to often in my opinion so maybe that is one of the reasons why we weren’t as consistent in results.


"I think right now we are just trying to improve that and I think like I said before, everyone knows their jobs on the field and it is much easier and clearer now so I think it looks really really good.


"I think the most important thing is that the team just needs to win. We need to get our winning game back for the confidence of the team and I think from there on we will work from that.


"Obviously we want to be at the top of the table and we want to be in the battle to qualify but it is going to be a hard job but as I said at the moment it looks really really good and we are just really excited for the next game on Saturday."
