Wolves boss Nuno wants more from Fabio Silva after FA Cup win

Wolves boss Nuno wants to see more from Fabio Silva after their FA Cup win against Crystal Palace.

Wolves won 1-0 at Molineux as a superb solo goal by Adama Traore settled the third-round tie, but it might have been a more comfortable night for Nuno's side had Silva taken one of two golden opportunities that came his way.

Nuno was frustrated that Silva did not take one of his chances but he was pleased with the 18-year-old's all-round play.

"Fabio did a good game but he needs chances and should do better, especially with the cross off Pedro. He needs to do better, it can not always be sorry and there is a lot of work there to be done," said the Wolves boss.

"He has to approach the situation better. When you are in the six-yard box you have to be decisive, and that will come. I am pleased with the way he kept the shape and worked, it is not easy to lead the line up front alone. But he needs to be more clinical.

"He needs to think about the actions and with the talent he has it will come. But the whole team needs to be more decisive and clinical also when chances come.

"We played well in the first half, it was good in terms of possession of the ball and we didn't allow anything in terms of gaps in the pockets. We scored a good goal also.

"In the second half, not so much, but we did create a good chance with Leander. The boys worked very hard in the middle of the park and we played really well and kept the ball."
