Wolves midfielder reveals the one issue his side needs to address


Wolves midfielder Leander Dendoncker has called for his side to stop conceding early goals if they are to end the season on a high.

For three matches in a row now Nuno Espirito Santo’s side have conceded inside the opening 15 minutes.

And Dendoncker has admitted that it is an issue that needs addressing if their impressive debut Premier League campaign isn’t to derail.

“In the first minute, that’s where it went wrong,” he told the club’s official website.

“Just like in the Burnley, we had to be coming from behind – we had to follow and come back from 1-0. They got the first goal way too quick and we were behind straight away, so it’s difficult.

“It’s important to keep them zero, because it gets very difficult to come from behind every time, and we have to see what we can do. In the first-half we had three chances against, and two times it goes in, so we have to do something.”

The defeat on the South Coast, followed their Wembley defeat to Watford the previous week, but the Belgian insisted that anguish was behind them.

“We said to each other this week that the semi-final is behind us, that we have to move on and try to finish the season well and I think everybody wanted a good result, to fight for seventh place, but it’s a defeat.

“We wanted to get a good result and play a good game. I don’t think we played a bad game, but we have to look at ourselves. I think we can do better, so it’s up to the next game.”

Wolves face Brighton next before hosting Arsenal.
