Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Nuno Espirito Santo has expressed his pride in his charges after they managed to overcome some hurdles this season according to Express & Star.
Wolves played to a 1-1 draw against Southampton over the weekend which has taken their tally to four games unbeaten in the Premier League and six across all competitions.
The Molineux Stadium outfit are set for another challenge when they travel to Slovakia to take on Slovan Bratislava in the Europa League on Thursday, October 24.
Nuno said: “We did very well before the international break, and we know how tough it is to regroup again – getting the players back.
“There were players that were out (injured) coming back in, and now we have players going out (injured). We have a very tough schedule. We travel on Wednesday to Bratislava.
“We then have a couple of days to prepare before (going to) Newcastle (on Sunday).
“I’m very, very proud of the boys. Very proud. It’s fantastic.”
Portuguese star Diogo Jota made an injury return to the squad as a second-half substitution after he had been on the sidelines after he sustained a toe injury.
“Diogo came on and did very well,” he said. “He came into the game and took the team up, very well. This is what it’s all about. Everybody’s important.”
