Wolves defender Ryan Bennett says the club’s success this season has come as a result of hard work the squad put in.
After a great start to the season, Nuno Espirito Santo’s side are sitting pretty in seventh position in the Premier League going into the international break.
The win at Crystal Palace on Saturday was their second back to back success of the season and Bennett, 28, believes the side is built on a solid back line.
He told the club’s website: “Defending goes right from the front. We work so hard on it and you see Joao [Moutinho], Ruben [Neves] and Raul [Jimenez] – right at the top – the wide men chasing down at you.
“It’s a collective thing and we can’t do it if they don’t, it’s as simple as that.
“I know strikers get plaudits for scoring goals and defenders get plaudits for putting blocks in, but we need the wing-backs and midfielders to come and help us and that’s what they’ve been doing all season.”
