Wolves fans hail Conor Coady's performance in defeat to Tottenham

Wolverhampton Wanderers fans have praised Conor Coady’s performance against Tottenham Hotspur today, despite the team’s 2-0 defeat in north London.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s side threatened one or two times but didn’t ever really make life too difficult for Tottenham.

The back four was back for Wolves, and the formation actually seemed to be working in the first-half.

Wolves were nice and compact, and Conor Coady was absolutely outstanding and seemed to block and clear everything.

He made a couple of goal-line clearances, before Harry Kane eventually breached the defence on the stroke of half-time.

Coady was actually slightly at fault in that crucial moment, but he was brilliant for the rest of the game.

Despite Wolves losing the game, Coady’s showing prompted Sky commentator Gary Neville to award him the Man of the Match, which tells you everything.

His performance will perhaps prompt some to reconsider their opinions about whether the 28-year-old can play in a back four.
