Doherty: Wolves looking to finish as high we can this season

Wolverhampton Wanderers are looking to finish as high up the Premier League table as possible this season, said Ireland international Matt Doherty after tonight’s impressive 3-0 win over West Ham.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side deservedly beat an out of sorts West Ham tonight at Molineux, although they had to patient at times, with all three goals coming in the second period, via Roman Saiss and a double from Mexican striker Raul Jimenez.

Wolves have won many plaudits for their performances since their promotion from the Championship, and tonight’s win sees them move up to seventh in the table.

Speaking after the game, 27-year-old full back Doherty revealed that his side are aiming to push on over the remainder of the season.

“We were playing well at half time and in the second half there was only one team in it and it was pleasing to put the goals away,” Doherty told BBC Sport.

“The longer it stays at 0-0 the more you think about it. We’re looking to finish as high as we can.

“We’ve not given ourselves a positional target. It looks as though the top six might be out of reach but seventh would be a good finish for us.”
