It’s Going To Be A Tough Match

Nuno Espirito Santo is expecting another tough Sky Bet Championship test as his side play host to Burton Albion at Molineux on Saturday afternoon.

The Brewers arrive at Molineux in 23rd place in the league table but the Head Coach is under no illusions about the task that awaits Wolves this weekend.

“We know what we’re going to find on Saturday. Nigel is a good coach,” said Nuno.

“You can see in recent fixtures that Burton are doing quite well at away games.

“We never look at the table. Burton come to Molineux ready for fight for something that’s important to them, as do we, so it’s going to be a tough match.

“Sometimes you have to be really, really cautious about who you’re going to face. Don’t ever make the mistake of underestimating a football team. We don’t do that.

“It’s up to us to be really focussed, to be determined on what we want. We want to win the game in front of our crowd and we have to work very, very hard for it.”

When discussing the Championship competition as a whole, the Wolves boss explained that he finds league to be one of the toughest in Europe and that establishing consistency is the key to success.

“It’s a competition that requires consistency,” he said before adding: “It requires regularities in your performance and we’ve been trying to achieve that during the season.

“It’s a big challenge. It’s a tough competition, one of the toughest competitions in Europe.

“We have to be ready to find solutions, to bounce back when the results are not good and to be consistent when the results are good.

“Try to be as good, if not better for the next game. This is a big challenge for us.”
