Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Nuno Espirito Santo has admitted his side’s performance against Shrewsbury Town was not good enough.
ITV report that Wolves just edged out their League One opponents 3-2 in last night’s FA Cup fourth-round replay at Molineux.
Matt Doherty gave the Premier League side the lead after just two minutes, but Sam Ricketts’ men showed great character to overturn the deficit with goals from James Bolton and Josh Laurent.
Doherty restored parity with his second of the evening before Ivan Cavaleiro scored what turned out to be the winning goal with 28 minutes remaining.
Despite the result, Nuno was not happy with the way his players performed and was not afraid to show his displeasure in his post-match comments.
The 45-year-old said:
I’m not happy with the performance but happy because we got to the fifth round. This is the most important (thing) but we have to look at the game and see it was not one of the best performances. Everybody is aware of that. It’s job done. Football has these things and you can’t always control them, you have to react to them. There are a lot of things we have to work on on the training ground and get better at. We pick always a strong XI. The idea is always to have a good XI. Today some players did well but I expect more from them. We have to improve a lot of things. We have to work on the training ground.
Wolves will face Bristol City at Ashton Gate in the fifth round, with the match taking place on February 17th.
