Wolves boss Nuno: Our Spurs equaliser came from intensity, aggression and chasing down

Wolves boss Nuno was delighted with his players after their 1-1 draw against Tottenham.

The hosts conceded within the opening minute but kept their composure and dominated large spells of the contest, then were rewarded for their performance when Romain Saiss headed home Pedro Neto's corner.

Nuno enthused, “Today we didn't have big players that we usually have like Leander (Dendoncker) and Willy (Boly). We changed and went to straight corners. There's no scientific reason for it, we always try to look for the best, sometimes it works out, so we are aware, but having solutions is good.

“I was pleased because the team realised we made a mistake and we had to chase, but the first reaction to that was good. The boys understood, kept the organisation and after that it was a tremendous effort in terms of intensity, aggression and chasing the players of Tottenham.

“It's a learning process. Sometimes you cannot expect how things happen in the first minute. We demand focus and demand being alert. We know how games are going with the situation without fans, the edge is not there, many games with early goals.

“It happens to you and you have to react. After that, I think we stayed in the game and performed well. We combined, we defended, we reacted to the loss of the ball and we had good chances."
