Wolves boss Nuno relieved to overcome FA Cup opponents Shrewsbury

Wolves boss Nuno was relieved to overcome Shrewsbury Town in last night's victorious FA Cup replay.

Wolves won 3-2 thanks to a winner from Ivan Cavaliero.

Nuno said, “The result was good. I'm happy, but the performance was not good. I think it was not one of the best ones.

“It was definitely not one of the best ones. I am happy because we've gone through, but there was a lot of things to look at.

“It was not one of the best games we've had, but we managed to solve it and it's job done, let's go to the next one."

He continued, “After we scored so early, I thought that we could have play better, then we allowed them to get back in the game. It made our task very harder.

“We were ahead with the first moment, the first shot on goal we scored, but after it we kept the ball with no real threat and when they scored we started playing, but it was always rushed and not the best way to play football.

“We got the job done, not in the best way, the way we want to do. The boys, after they got scared, started playing – they know there's no easy games in football."
