Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo was delighted with his team’s effort in the 2-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday in the second round of the Carabao Cup.

Goals from Leo Bonatini and substitute Helder Costa was enough to secure the third round ticket for the Midlanders.

Nuno said: “I think we are all satisfied. There were a lot of positives and the main thing is that the team competed well. They don’t have to prove anything to anybody.

“It was a good game but sometimes we rushed too much. We have a lot of work to do. All the cups are important. This competition gives us minutes of real intensity. It gives players an opportunity to show what they can do.

“There were good saves, good defending, good possession, and good movement.”

On the absence of defender Danny Batth, Nuno commented: “Danny is the captain of the club but sometimes we have to make decisions. Every player at Wolves is in my plans.

“The market is not closed but if a big team comes in with £100m for a player, what can you do?”
