Wolves legend Kenny Hibbitt believes the team will find its groove back

Wolves legend Kenny Hibbitt is confidence in Nuno Espirito Santo ability to help the team bounce back to their usual goalscoring selves as told to Express & Star.

The team is yet to find their groove this season after managing to score three goals in six matches while playing to one draw and losing two in the process. 

There is also a positive side to this as Wolves have gone three games unbeaten so far and are sitting above the usual top four teams.

Hibbit who made 574 appearances for Wolves as a midfielder in a 16-year span said:  “I don’t think it’s anything to be too concerned about. I don’t think the manager will be too concerned.

“The fact is that we’ve sold two key players in Diogo Jota and Matt Doherty, and when you’re trying to replace them, that zip and spark slightly goes off until the players coming in get settled and understand how this Wolves team plays.

“So, I’m not too disappointed at the minute.

“I was disappointed to see us concede against Newcastle in the last minute because of a bad wall that should have been a lot better than it was. But I think the players he’s brought in look very good.

“We’ve lost Jota and Doherty who were two quality players who made us a click a bit, and when you lose them, it takes a while.

“The last two seasons have been remarkable and I’m not too concerned.
“We’ve still got a great squad of players, and they will settle down and that spark will come back – no question.”

“They’re having shots and creating chances, at least” said Hibbitt.

“Raul Jimenez has been so consistent since he came to the club, and he just needs that someone alongside him to try and help a bit and take the pressure off.

“But again, we’ve got a very good team, full of talent. That spark we had is not quite there at the minute, but it will come.”
