Molineux return excites Coady

28th February 2019, 16:08 by Jack Ogalbe

Wolves captain Conor Coady says he is excited to be back in front of the Molineux crowd on Saturday after three straight away games.

The quirks of the fixture list means they have not played in WV1 since the February 11 1-1 draw against Newcastle and have since won away at Bristol City in the FA Cup and drawn 1-1 with Watford.

However, Tuesday's 1-0 defeat at rock-bottom Huddersfield was arguably the team's worst performance of the season and perhaps demonstrated they are starting to grow homesick.

Saturday sees Cardiff visit Molineux and, after the defeat in West Yorkshire, Nuno Espirito Santo's men will be keen to bounce back as they look to continue their push for seventh place.

Skipper Coady will lead the side out and admits he is excited about playing in front of his team's fans again.

"You feel the history when you go in," Coady told the club's website. "We've not played there for a few weeks and you miss it, I'll be honest. You miss playing at home, you miss the buzz of your own supporters being behind you.

"When Molineux gets going, and what it's been like this year, it's rocking and it's an intimidating place to play for the opposition. To play there is fantastic for all of us players, we love every single minute of it."

He added: "We've looked at them, we're prepared, we'll make sure we'll do it right, and we're going into Saturday looking forward to the game."
