‘I think we deserved more from game’

 

Carlos Carvalhal felt Wednesday deserved at least a point after going down 1-0 at home to Championship leaders Wolves.

With Keiren Westwood and Barry Bannan late withdrawals through injury, it meant nine ‘first teamers’ were out of action but we gave a reasonable account of ourselves against a Wolves side who were no more than efficient on the night.

Ruben Neves’ first-half goal proved the decisive moment and, whilst we had a decent share of the game, we lacked the pace and guile to cause Wolves many problems.

Carvalhal said: “I think we deserved something from this game, at least one point in my opinion.

“Our plans worked in how we approached the game and the differences were very small.

“Wolves had one good chance and scored and we did not.

“We played very well all over the pitch but I think we needed more aggression so I put on Atdhe Nuhiu and Lucas Joao.

“They had an impact and played in a positive way. I am proud of my players but, of course, I am disappointed to have lost the game.”
