Wolves captain Conor Coady delighted with Europa League win

Wolves captain Conor Coady was left delighted with their Europa League win against Crusaders.

Wolves won the first-leg of their qualifier 2-0.

Coady said, “We wanted to make sure that we set the foundations for the whole season, and I think we've started with a good result, and a clean sheet, which is something we can take forward.

“We moved the ball from side to side – we probably could have penetrated a bit more, but they came with a game plan and sat deeper and deeper, which makes it tough when you're trying to get around them.

“We've been back (in pre-season) a long time compared to other clubs. It's different, but it's something we'd much rather have, because friendlies aren't proper games, so when competitive games come along they really help."
