Date published: Sunday 8th December 2019 7:18

Nuno Espirito Santo is bracing himself for a tough run of fixtures after Wolves settled for a point at Brighton.

Wolves were pegged back after taking the lead, with goals from Neal Maupay and Davy Propper turning the game on its head.

However, Diogo Jota got them back on level terms, having opened the scoring in the first place.

As they extend their unbeaten run to eight games, Wolves boss Nuno exclaimed his pride at Wolves’ growth, as they continue to show they can balance domestic duties with the Europa League.

“It was a tough game, competitive and emotional,” he said to Match of the Day.

“I am proud of how we stayed organised. We did not do well when he had to restart the game after the 1-1: we should not have played a horizontal pass that was intercepted.

“We are very proud of what we are achieving day by day but we want to keep on going, we need to compete and prepare ourselves for the last game in the Europa League.

“The hardest part of the fixtures is going to start now: it will be tough for everybody.”

After rounding off their Europa League group against Besiktas, the festive period will put Wolves up against the likes of Tottenham, Manchester City and Liverpool, while an FA Cup clash with Manchester United awaits for their second game of 2020.
