Wolves defender Conor Coady insists he’s focusing on the positives after the team’s 3-0 defeat to Manchester City on Monday night.

Despite having a reputation of getting big results against the top teams, Wolves were thrashed 3-0 at the Etihad on Monday.

After 19 minutes, they were already a goal down and a man down as Willy Boly was sent off for a reckless challenge on Bernardo Silva after Gabriel Jesus gave City the lead.

A penalty call against Wolves followed 19 minutes later and Gabriel Jesus converted to make it 2-0 going into half time.

Coady’s unfortunate own goal in the 78th minute completed the scoring in a miserable night for Nuno’s side.

“I thought the boys dug in, to be honest. They scored from a cross for the last one, that’s what goes for you when you’re top of the league,” Coady told the club’s website.

“We had to battle. We were saying, at 2-0 at half time, don’t concede anymore and then we concede off a cross which is disappointing. We’ve got to dust ourselves down and go again now.

“We’ve got a big game next week now, so we dust ourselves this week, make sure we’re ready and try and get them on it.”
