Birmingham Delight For Nuno

Birmingham Delight For Nuno

Nuno Espirito Santo was delighted to see Wolverhampton Wanderers take victory over Birmingham City on Monday evening.

Taking a one nil victory at St Andrew's as Leo Bonatini scored his 12th goal of the season in the eighth minute, Wolves put themselves four points clear at the top of the Championship table and we notched up six straight wins.

Speaking to the Official Website as he met with the media following the game, Nuno explained.

'It was a good win. This game was very important to us because of the fans. It meant a lot to them and I`m really happy for them. They are always, always with us and today was very important for them. It was a tough three points. Everybody felt that we should have done better at the end of the game. This is good. It shows that the boys want to improve and keep going, keep growing.'

Santo went on to say.

'I`m very happy because we knew tonight was going to be tough. It was a tough game but I felt that we deserved the win. We played last Saturday and have stayed all week without competition, we knew the results from behind, we knew that we had to come here and show that we wanted to win the game and we did it. We showed from minute one that we were the better team. Today we were the better team.'

With Wolves largely dominating the match, first half in particular, Santo was asked about any disappointment for not tying the game up and getting that second or third goal.

'A second goal would have changed everything. It would have made us more comfortable and given us the opportunity to play better. We had chances so we must take credit for creating chances against a tough opponent. I was really happy with the first half. The way we managed and took control of the game from the first minute. We had good possession, we were threatening going forward and we defended very well. I think a clean sheet is a well deserved prize for the way we defended as a team. We didn`t concede many chances.'
