Coady hails squad effort

5th March 2019, 08:05 by Jack Ogalbe

Wolves captain Conor Coady says the entire squad will be required to aid the club's push for seventh place.

After a disappointing 1-0 loss at Huddersfield, the Molineux-outfit handed starts to the likes of Adama Traore, Ruben Vinagre, Morgan Gibbs-White and John Ruddy for Saturday's 2-0 defeat of Cardiff, a result that helped them end the weekend above Watford on goal difference.

This weekend sees Wolves head to Chelsea on Sunday afternoon and with fatigue starting to set in, Nuno Espirito Santo may again rest some of his players with an FA Cup quarter-final against Manchester United to come on March 16.

Coady says the fresh legs helped bring an extra vibrancy to the team and is backing those on the fringes of the squad to play their part in the closing months of the season.

"There have been a few tired boys over the past couple of weeks but the performance on Saturday showed everyone is needed," Coady is reported as saying by the Express & Star. "The Premier League is so, so tough, a few boys have been tired or a bit jaded and Tuesday at Huddersfield wasn't good enough from our point of view.

"The win was needed. It was professional, I thought the boys who came in were outstanding.

"They brought a lot to how we wanted to play and do things and the movement we wanted to do. We've got a small squad and everyone is needed throughout the season."
