Nuno demands Wolves reaction

27th February 2019, 04:46 by Michael Holland

Nuno Espirito Santo refused to criticise his Wolves players despite slipping to a 1-0 defeat at struggling Huddersfield Town.

Wolves were left empty handed as Steve Mounie struck in stoppage time to clinch the Terriers' first win since November and their first points under new manager Jan Siewert.

For Nuno's men, it was their first league defeat in six matches and they missed a great opportunity to climb to seventh place in the table.

However, Nuno refused to criticise his players despite conceding they were well below par, and is now demanding they bounce straight back at home to Cardiff this weekend.

"It was not one of the best performances, but I have no complaints. What do you mean about complaints?" he said. "We didn't play so good. The first half, we created a couple of situations, but not enough.

"In the second half we were not so clinical and no shots on goal. We didn't play good. Credit to Huddersfield. They were organised and they won, so congratulations to them.

"We have to react, work harder and try again on Saturday."
