Conor Coady praises Wolverhampton Wanderers' performance against Derby County

Wolverhampton Wanderers beat Derby County 2-0 in the Championship action at the weekend.

Conor Coady has told Wolverhampton Wanderers’ official site that his side closed the ball down against Derby County better than they have in any other match this term.

Wolves beat Derby 2-1 to break out of a seven game winless run, which has seen them drop down the Championship table.

Kenny Jackett’s side were excellent against the Rams, and Coady was delighted with the performance that his team put in.

"We needed to keep the ball better as a team today and we did that and we closed the ball down – probably the best we have done all season – because we know how good Derby are," the central midfielder said. 

The pressure was on Jackett to start helping Wolves get back to winning ways quickly, as the calls for him to be sacked were growing louder and louder.

Jackett was booed off when he went to clap Wolves’ supporters after a 3-0 defeat to Brentford last week.

Wolves were much improved against Derby, though, and their performance highlighted the quality that they still have in their squad.

George Saville fired Wolves in front in the first half, before a Chris Martin free-kick levelled the scores again.

It could have been easy for Wolves to crumble at that point, but Saville netted again to help Jackett’s men move up to 13th in the Championship table.
