Wolves boss Bruno Lage frustrated after Fulham draw

Wolves boss Bruno Lage admitted frustration after their 0-0 draw with Fulham.

Despite creating several opportunities, Wolves were unable to find the back of the net, and had to rely on Jose Sa's penalty save from Aleksandar Mitrovic to keep the game all square.

Lage said, “It's frustrating because we didn't score. I think we deserved to win because we created chances to score goals, but It's almost like living everything again and again. That's the way, but we need to continue to work.

“I think once again we did a great performance, but how many times do we have the players in front of the goalkeeper and no players in front of the goal to score goals. But this is football. Like in the beginning of last season, I was not worried because I could see the team were growing up, and one more time I'm not worried because I can see we play good football and the goals will come.

“It's not easy, and it wasn't easy today with the opponent. They have a top manager and with the way they won the Championship and the way they started the season, it wasn't an easy opponent, but we did a good performance, which was more important for us.

"During the last season we started with three games, no goals and no points, and this one, we can score a little bit, but it's not enough, we just have one goal and one point, but I want more.

“But if we cannot score goals, at least we cannot concede or give chances to the opponent and I don't remember an opportunity for Fulham to score in the second-half, but then we give away a penalty and a great chance to score a goal.

“In the end, what we look for what we did all the game, I think we should have had the three points, but there comes a time when we need to have emotional control, especially in the last 15 minutes because the game was balanced, and in that moment, I think we had more strength and fitness than the opponent.

“We don't need to run as a crazy team, but play our game, be in the moment, keep control of the ball, of the positions, of the emotions and the goal will come, while we can't concede chances and spaces for the opponent."
