Coady grateful for unwavering Wolves support

Wolverhampton Wanderers

Wolves captain Conor Coady insists their supporters have a big role to play over the course of the 2019-20 season.

The Molineux outfit failed to win any of their opening six games in the Premier League but they have since bounced back to claim successive victories.

Their Europa League campaign, which got underway in July, appeared to have a detrimental impact on domestic form. However, they have adapted to competing on multiple fronts and head into the international break unbeaten in five across all competitions.

A 2-0 win at defending champions Manchester City on Sunday more than atoned for some lacklustre performances earlier in the term. That triumph at the Etihad has propelled Wolves up to 11th in the Premier League and they are now just four points off the top-four.


Coady claims the fans have boosted morale in the Wolves camp and has stressed the importance of staying unified during what is likely to be a tough and demanding campaign.

“When we move forward we always do it as one. You saw it at Besiktas on Thursday night, the effort everyone put in, supporters to come and support us, players on the pitch that night,” Coady said.

“To go and do it again on Sunday, you see how much it means to them. I cannot thank the fans enough, they have been fantastic. We need them (the fans) to keep on going like ourselves because we all need to keep pushing in the right direction.”

Meanwhile, injuries are starting to pile up for the West Midlands side after Romain Saiss limped out of the win at the Etihad.

Saiss had to leave the field just 13 minutes into the encounter and has subsequently withdrawn from international duty with Morocco.

Portugal under-21 forward Pedro Neto has also stayed with Wolves at Compton Park due to a bruised heel.

Diogo Jota and Morgan Gibbs-White are being treated by the medical team for foot and back injuries respectively.

Nuno Espirito Santo will be hoping the quartet can complete their recovery process over the next couple of weeks as he looks to have a fully fit squad for their return to the Premier League against Southampton on October 19.
