Nuno Espirito Santo has admitted Wolves need to change the way they deal with prospects after beating Sheffield United 1-0.
Wolves have won back-to-back victories in beat Sheffield United by one goal in Molineux. This confirmed the relegation of their opponents to the Championship. For their part, however, that included a welcome boost of confidence for Willian Jose, who scored his first goal in a Wolves shirt.
It was far from an exciting game, however, with Wolves rarely testing Aaron Ramsdale. They had a total of five shots on target.
Therefore, Nuno knows there are still areas for improvement as they look to move towards the top half in the final weeks of the season.
He said Sky Sports: “It was not a good game. We were solid, compact and we had chances. We started the second half well and scored the goal, but then we crashed too much.
“We have allowed Sheffield United to control the game, and we have to do a lot better with our counter attacks.
“There is always a sense of protection to keep what you have. Obviously, this is not always the best way to go. This is something we need to improve on in the future.
“The second half was much better, the aggression was there.
“We have to make decisions based on the team and the players. It is not about the system, but rather about the approach and the idea on which we must build.
“We had a good result today. It was not the best performance today, hope we can improve the performance.

The good thing for Nuno has been that Willian Jose has gone off the rails, which the Wolves boss thinks he deserves.
He said: “Willian works very hard for the team. He works a lot between the lines.
“The goal was missing, but today he got the goal and we’re going from there. The obligation to score is not the sole responsibility of attackers. “
