Adama Traore was disappointed Wolves failed to beat Crystal Palace but was happy with the way they fought back to earn a point. The Molineux club remain without a victory in the Premier League this season after they were held to a 1-1 draw by Palace at Selhurst Park on Sunday.
Wolves dominated the first half but couldn’t find a way through and fell behind to an unfortunate Leander Dendoncker own goal soon after the restart.
Wanderers were reduced to 10 men when Romain Saiss was sent off for a second bookable offence and it appeared they were set to miss out until the dying stages when Diogo Jota grabbed a last-gasp equaliser.
Traore, who provided the assist for Jota’s strike with a cross, was delighted with the way Wolves refused to give in. “It’s like I’ve said before, when you’re creating chances and the ball is not going in, you have to keep going,” he told the Express & Star.
“In the game, we had things like the red card but this is football. I’m happy with the speed of the team. I’m happy we got a point. “But I think we want to win. This is the important thing. We have one point but we have to watch everything again.”
Wolves also scored a last-minute leveller to take a point against Burnley earlier in the season and there is real team spirit within Nuno Espirito Santo’s squad despite their failure to claim a win after six games, with their Europa League campaign perhaps impacting on domestic form.
Wolves are back in action on Wednesday night when they entertain Championship club Reading in the EFL Cup before a home game against bottom club Watford in the Premier League on Saturday.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
