Wolves captain Conor Coady was delighted to record a first Premier League win going into the international break. The Molineux outfit managed a 1-0 victory over West Ham at the weekend and Coady says ending their wait for a three-point haul came as a welcome relief.
“It’s great to go into the international break with a win – it would have been a long two weeks otherwise,” he told the Express & Star. “It’s special, it’s what we’ve been craving.
“The supporters, the players, the manager, we’ve all been craving it. We’ve been confident in the first four games – we’ve shown we’ve adapted and got better through the games.
“Saturday was a combination of how we want to play, how we want to be organised and how we want to dictate games.
“The lads were excellent. It would have been an injustice if we hadn’t come away with three points.”
Wolves have now managed five points from three games having also picked up draws against Everton and Manchester City, although Coady feels the point against champions City would have counted for little if they’d failed to get a result against the Hammers.
He added: “I said to the boys before the game we’d only make the Man City point a good one if we could back it up at West Ham.”
Wolves entertain Burnley in their next match after the international break before a tough trip to Manchester United.
