He said after the game:

"We are proud because it is a sign of consistency and shows the players put in the effort every week. It is not easy because it is very fragile - you look at the game today which might have gone both ways.

"You realise you need a little bit of luck as well but you need the mental qualities to go on to the next one.

"The first half was very physical and Wolves gave every drop of blood to stop us playing. I give a lot of credit to Wolves who gave absolutely everything today and I now understand why they didn't lose for such a long time here.

"We were conscious at half-time that we needed to be more dominant and win more physical challenges. Just technique on that pitch was not enough."
