Steve Bull: Three points would cap off fantastic week for Wolves

By Steve Bull | Wolves | Published:

We’ve got to put the euphoria which comes with beating Torino in the Europa League on Thursday night to one side as it’s back to our bread and butter today.

Burnley are coming to Molineux and it promises to be a tough test for Nuno’s side.

We go into it on the back of two fantastic results, and these are the games we’ve got to be winning if we are to finish in the top half of the Premier League again this season.

Sean Dyche’s team, they work hard, they will get in your faces if needs be, but if we perform how we have done recently – even with the quick turnaround – we should get that first league win.

And I would love to see us cap off a truly great week by getting those all-important three points in the bag.

We did very well against Manchester United, in the end, on Monday night. A draw was a fair result.

I thought we gave United a bit too much respect in the first half, letting them have a lot of the ball and dictate the game.

But I think Nuno reminded them at half-time that it was pretty much the same group of players we beat twice last season, and then in the second half, it was all us.

It was very much a game of two halves, and what a beautiful strike it was from Ruben Neves.


Then with Torino, I was going into it with the mindset that I’d be delighted with a draw – keep it tight for the second leg at home.

It was a much more open game than I expected, though, and our goals were all very well-worked.

Diogo Jota and Raul Jimenez did the business up front, as they so often do.

It was a fantastic result, with the only disappointment being that a couple of silly mistakes led to a couple of goals for the hosts, which still gives them hope.


But I’m confident we’ll see it through in a professional manner next Thursday.

By the way, Adama Traore has come into his own over the past couple of games, hasn’t he?

I thought he did brilliantly in both games, adding that end product to the frightening pace which he has always had.

Neves with his cracker, and Jota and Jimenez firing – all of the lads have been doing their bit. Long may it continue.
