Wolves host Burnley tonight looking to get back to winning ways after the 0-0 draw with Norwich on Saturday.

The visit of Sean Dyche’s side may bring back painful memories of their last meeting in April.

The Clarets’ 4-0 win that day was arguably the worst result of the Nuno Espirito Santo era.

Looking back at it now sums up the mood at the time; Wolves drifting under Nuno, playing football behind closed doors without the emotion of fans there.

At the time, Nuno said as per the Birmingham Mail: “We played bad. We had a very bad performance today. There were too many things to explain.

“Bad defending, not the right decisions in the right moments when we were under pressure. Burnley always pressed us and we didn’t have movement to get out of that pressure and then we defended very bad every time.

“Every attack from Burnley we defended poorly.”

Going into tonight’s game, things are not perfect but they are much improved.

And now Lage and his players have the chance to avenge that damaging defeat to Burnley last time around, showcasing the scale of their improvement in the months which have followed.
