Wolves captain Coady on 'incredible' derby win at Aston Villa: Mings didn't like it

Wolves captain Conor Coady was floating after their stunning 3-2 win at Aston Villa.

Coady scored as Wolves scored three goals in the final 15 minutes to earn the points.

He said, "I'm still out of breath to be honest! It was really, really tough. Aston Villa have spent money on top players. I thought it was quite even. We gave away sloppy goals but days like that, you don't think of that. To come back is testament to the boys. Incredible, eh?

"It's the character that we showed. We have great team spirit. It's a pleasure to be around these boys. We have played in the team who want to step up and help each other. To win it like that is next level.

"It came off my knee and one most people won't remember but I will. We work on set-pieces quite a lot so to score off them today is really pleasing. It was emotional and one we'll remember for a long time. We'll always push to get better but we'll enjoy days like today."

Coady also remarked: "Incredible. Honestly, it was emotional and tough. I didn't think there was much in the game until it all kicked off and went a bit bonkers. It was a derby so to win the way we have from 2-0 down is incredible.

"It's something we always try and work on. It's a pleasure to be within this changing room. We will never, ever stop. I can hear the supporters singing and we will never stop for them either.

"No matter how the goals go in it's incredible. I could see my wife and the boys in the stand at the end going mental. It doesn't matter who scored but luckily we got the win today.

"I think we gelled from the first game. Since the new manager came in we have improved. We were on the end of some bad results but there's loads to improve on. We want to enjoy it.

"[Tyrone Mings] is the first person I saw at the end. We know they're a top team. He's one of my best mates and I'm sure we'll have a chat about it at some point but I think I'll leave him to it for a bit..."
