Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Conor Coady advises the club fans to relish the moment of their astonishing start to the Premier League season having helped his team achieve a clean sheet win against Southampton on Sunday.
Nuno Espírito Santo’s side was able to score the first goal of the match in the 79th minute and eight minute later the Wolves found the back of the net again to seal their win over the saints – which also means the Wolves have been unbeaten at home in their last 13 matches played at Molineux stadium.
The newly promoted club have been able to hold off visitors in the Premier League playing four matches at their home stadium – drawing level with Everton in a 2-2 draw, playing 1-1 with defending champions Manchester City and defeating Burnley and Southampton as they sit at the 9th position on the table.
Speaking after beating Southampton last weekend, Conor Coady said via Wolves website: “It’s good at the moment, we can enjoy it while it lasts – which is hopefully for a long time. It’s pleasing for the football club and everyone involved – when this city gets like this when we’re doing well, they don’t half get behind you – it’s brilliant.
“You always hear our fans – they’re loud as anything! It’s a serious atmosphere and the way it is at the moment is brilliant. We’ve got to do our best to keep that going.
“Every team at Premier League level is a good team, but it really helps playing in front of our home support – it’s a fantastic stadium to play in and fantastic supporters to play in front of, especially when they’re as loud as they were today. It doesn’t half drive you on.”
The defender admitted that Wolves did not play at their best in the match, before substitute Ivan Cavaleiro registered his first goal of the season only for Jonny Castro Otto to double it up for the Wolves.
Speaking on the performance v Saints, Coady said: “When you’re winning it’s always good, especially in the Premier League. It was a tough game, really tough. I thought Southampton were a good side – they move it well and have some talented players, but sometimes you’ve just got to dig in – any win is a good win.
“The defensive aspect of the performance was important for us. We pride ourselves on our clean sheets and we want to keep as many as possible – that hasn’t changed from last year.
“We work hard on the training pitch and we listen to the manager. We work hard every single day – over and over again, but that’s what you need to do to improve.”
Conor Coady also talks about Cavaleiro’s goal: “I was made up for Cav to get the goal,” he said. “He was outstanding when he came on. We know what he brings to the club – he’s a pleasure to have around the changing room and in the squad.
“We know how much quality he’s got – he showed that throughout the whole of last season – and what he did today was fantastic.
“Having him back is fantastic, and you look at our front players now – we have fantastic options. Diogo, Helder and Raul all started and then we’re able to bring the likes of Cav, Adama and Bonatini on. They’re great options and we’re enjoying what we’re doing at the minute.”
The Wolverhampton Wanderers will return to action for English Top Flight as they will be travelling to Selhurst Park on 6th of October to face Crystal Palace.
