Later this evening, Wolverhampton Wanderers make the trip to the John Smith’s Stadium to face off against struggling Huddersfield Town.
Wolves made it five unbeaten in the form guide with our draw at the weekend against Bournemouth and we’ll be going into tonight’s clash looking to get back to winning ways as we look to chase down Chelsea in sixth place to make a good return to Premier League action even better as the season edges to a close.
Huddersfield are rooted to the bottom of the table and have five straight defeats to their name, having changed manager earlier in the season and on paper, this should be a walk in the park for head coach Nuno Espirito Santo’s boys, but our gaffer knows that won’t be the case.
Speaking to the Official Website as he met with the press on Monday to discuss the game, Nuno was adamant that despite their victory over us earlier in the season, that will have no bearing on the challenge we face as they battle for their lives in the top flight as both sides have changed plenty since then.
“It’s a game that was very far away, we don’t take that game as our analysis for tomorrow. Teams have changed, their manager has changed, and they are playing in a different way. I remember at that moment they were really aggressive and we were not able to play. Since then I think we’ve improved on our building, the way we try to go out, but it’s not a reference for tomorrow. The most relevant are the previous games and the previous performance. Then you can see the new ideas, the new movements, and you have to try and find solutions based on the last performance of Huddersfield, which is not so far away.”
