Wolverhampton Wanderers’ form turned around ahead of the October international break as we notched up four wins on the spin across all competitions, and with the Premier League schedule back in play this weekend, head coach Nuno Espirito Santo was desperately hoping to see us make it three top flight wins in a row as we welcomed Southampton to Molineux.
Despite the poor performance and only one shot on target, Wolves will wonder how we only took a point from that clash as we had the ball in the back of the net twice until the Video Assistant Referee technology ruled both of them out for handball and then offside.
We did react well when Southampton opened the scoring though and we got ourselves back on level terms from the penalty spot with Raul Jimenez taking full advantage, but it was a poor one.
A point is a point though and the unbeaten run continues.
Speaking to the BBC following the final whistle, our gaffer said of the 90 minutes.
“It was a very tough game. It was very disputed and there was a lot of fight in the midfield. They were very well organised. The game was hard, we made mistakes. We know that there are things we could have done better. I am disappointed because we must be solid and today we were not solid.”
With VAR featuring once again in the game, he added.
“It is what it is. I hope it gets better.”
