Wolves wing-back Adama Traore: Reading offers us momentum

Wolves wing-back Adama Traore says they can build momentum with a Carabao Cup win over Reading tonight.

Wolves go into the tie on the gap of their draw with Crystal Palace.

Traore told the club's website: “It will be important to build momentum, but whether it's against Reading or whether it's against anyone else, we always want to win.

“It was the same against Crystal Palace – we got a point, but for everyone, we wanted to win. In any game, and whatever is the team, we go out to work and win.

“But even if we don't win games, we always have a positive mind. We have no excuses not to win games, and this is why we fight and work to do it."

On showing character at Selhurst Park, he continued: “It was a tough game and we wanted more, but we stayed in shape, we worked hard, and we kept believing – that is the important thing.

“We had a lot of chances to score, the first-half in particular, but we didn't finish it, so we have to think about the positive things, but we have to keep working, we have to improve in our game and we showed we can do it.

“When you have chances and the goalie does well or it's not going in, you get frustrated, but you have to keep going, keep believing and even if we have one man less, two men less, we will keep fighting together."
