Wolves boss Nuno delighted with preseason form

Wolves boss Nuno is pleased with his side's progress in preseason.

The Molineux outfit ran out comfortable 4-0 winners over Newcastle United in China.

They will face either Crusaders or B36 Torshavn in the Europa League qualifying round next Thursday.

"It's going well, we're trying to progress and improve," Nuno said. "The idea is to try and accelerate and do it well. These things take time but our preparation is going well.

"(The positives were) preparation for the competition, high possession of the team, good shape, good combinations, goals, we want to prepare ourselves for the competitions, that's the positive.

"It was very tough for the players (in the heat). The idea was to try and increase minutes, more game time. In one week they'll be ready to go. For both teams it was tough.

"We have one more game (on Saturday), hopefully a good performance and that's the idea, not just now but in the season, we'll take it game by game."
