Wolverhampton Wanderers

Nuno calls for focus ahead of Toon clash

11th February 2019, 09:26 by Michael Holland

Nuno Espirito Santo has warned his Wolves side not to chase records as they hunt a fourth straight win against Newcastle.

The Magpies travel to Molineux with in-form Wolves seventh in the Premier League having lost just three times in their last 14 outings, to leave them full of confidence.

Nuno's side are in pole position to finish seventh, which would earn a Europa League play-off spot if the winners of the FA Cup also finish in the top four.

Wolves have beaten Leicester, Everton and West Ham in their last three top flight matches but have never won four consecutive Premier League games.

"We're not here for the records, we're not here for that," Nuno told the club's official site. "What we are here for is to improve, to work as a team, stay humble and work hard, trying to achieve the best performance that we can in every game.

"This is the mentality that we have. At Molineux on Monday against a tough team and we have to work very hard, improve things that we have to improve and back in Molineux with the support of our pack, we'll try it."
