How do Wolves score so many late goals?
Wolves have scored a high number of late goals since arriving back into the Premier League. Matt Doherty scored a 94th minute winner against Newcastle United, and Wily Boly did one better against the magpies in a 1-1 draw at Molineux.
Nuno’s men were even level with Manchester United for the highest amount of extra time goals last season (Premier League). Captain Conor Coady said Wolves’ refusal to die was the result of the characters in the locker room.
“You have to have that willingness and that fight to get back in the game and get a point or a win,” said Coady (Mirror). “I don’t think you can teach or learn that kind of thing.”
“It is the character within the group and we know players will fight until the end to get a point or a win and we have to keep going until the end. We never give up.”
Wolves’ have continued their injury time heroics to show their bite wasn’t a one season deal. Raul Jimenez rescued a point against Burnley in the 97th minute, and Diogo Jota scored at Selhurst Park in the 95th.
This refusal to die cannot be understated. To echo the post-match comments of Nuno (BBC), it shows remarkable “spirit, heart and character.”
