Nuno Espirito Santo warns Wolves players after surprise defeat to Huddersfield

Nuno Espirito Santo has warned his Wolves players that a similar slip-up to that they suffered against Huddersfield on Tuesday night ‘cannot happen again’.

Wolves went into Tuesday’s game in West Yorkshire unbeaten in their last five Premier League outings, and came up against a Huddersfield side who hadn’t won a single game since November, ironically, the 2-0 win over Wolves at Molineaux.

However, the form book went out of the window, with the Black Country club failing to get a single shot on target against the Premier League’s bottom side, and were made to pay when Steve Mounie stabbed home a 91st minute winner.

Speaking after the game, Nuno Espirito Santo told his players not to let their performance levels drop again.

“It was a tough game and it wasn’t one of the best performances we had but credit to Huddersfield for fighting for each ball,” he told BBC’s Match of the Day.

“We came from a good run but we have to bounce back. We are very cautious that what happened today cannot happen again.”

The result leaves Wolves in eighth, level on points with Watford although with a slightly worse goal difference.
