Conor Coady heaped praise on young Wolves duo Fabio Silva and Francisco Trincao after yesterday’s 2-1 win over Aston Villa.
Bruno Lage’s side are back to winning ways in the Premier League after putting in a great performance in the West Midlands Derby.
Wolves were too hot to handle for Villa, with some great attacking football on show from the hosts.
Jonny Castro Otto opened the scoring, as he did against Leeds United, and then Fernando Marcal forced an own goal from Ashley Young with a brilliant cross.
Ollie Watkins pulled one back via the penalty spot to set up a nervy finish.
But Wolves held out for all three points to climb back up to seventh.
There were great individual displays all over the pitch yesterday. The front three in particularly were really lively.
And after the game, Coady picked out Silva and Trincao for praise.
He said: “I thought they were outstanding from start to finish, in possession, out of possession, they used the ball so well. We know the quality they bring, and we know that whoever comes into the team when we’re missing players, other players will do the job and I thought both of them were outstanding.
“Players coming into the team understand the role. Fab and Trincao were outstanding. They both deserved a goal because I thought they were brilliant.”
Trincao and Silva were excellent and deserve starts against Newcastle
The young Portuguese pair really delivered yesterday.
Silva was especially good leading the line, and appears to have improved a lot physically.
Trincao has clearly been buoyed by that display against Leeds, and was really lively again.
Both players absolutely did enough to warrant starting the next game against Newcastle United on Friday.
