Romain Saiss says the Championship win over Cardiff in April 2018 was his most important game for Wolves.

Wolves 1-0 at the Cardiff City Stadium in what was a huge clash at the top of the second tier table at that point.

Neil Warnock’s side missed two stoppage time penalties. John Ruddy saved Gary Madine’s effort before Junior Hoilett hit the bar.

Saiss touched on the topic during an interview with the club website where he also talked about the atmosphere at Molineux.

When asked about the most important game of his whole career, Saiss said: “I think it was with Wolves – the win we had against Cardiff in the Championship.

“It was really important to win that game, and not let them come back for first place, and it was an amazing game. It was a fantastic finish.”

On his Wolves debut, he added: “My first game in the UK was away at Newcastle, which was a fantastic game because we won in a fantastic stadium in a good atmosphere.


“My first game at Molineux was against Brentford. I remember with the fans it was amazing, a full stadium, a great atmosphere and I knew I’d made a good choice to sign for Wolves.”

Both sides ended up getting to the Premier League in the end but what a night of drama it was.

That win took Wolves nine points clear of Cardiff in second with just five games remaining.

It showed their resilience and their resolve too and those qualities were given huge priority by Nuno Espirito Santo.

Saiss will of course be looking for more special nights like that under Bruno Lage.
