Coady elated after Hammers success

30th January 2019, 19:10 by Tom Hill

Wolves centre-back Conor Coady was delighted after his side kept a clean sheet during the 3-0 win over West Ham on Tuesday.

Wolves moved into seventh in the Premier League after a commanding display at Molineux.

Two goals from Raul Jimenez helped Wolves on their way to three points but Coady was more pleased with the defensive side of the game.

Nuno Espirito Santo's side had not kept a clean sheet since December 15 and Coady is confident his team can build on Tuesday's success.

He told the club's official website: "It was important. We spoke about it before the game; about getting better and improving defensively, and we did that tonight. It was about getting close to each other, being compact, supporting each other and covering round, and we did that all evening.

"I thought we were brilliant - I really did. I thought we controlled the game from start to finish and that was how we wanted to play."
