The Portuguese midfielder was on the scoresheet against Everton on Tuesday night, but Nuno Espirito Santo’s side struggled to create anything in the second half as they lost 2-1.
Wolves – with Raul Jimenez continuing his recovery from surgery for a fractured skull – have netted just 19 times in 18 Premier League matches this campaign.
And ahead of Saturday’s must-win Black Country Derby against Albion, Neves is looking for more creativity and ruthlessness in the final third.
“That’s my job. I always try to do my best and fortunately, I scored a goal,” he said. “But it doesn’t matter as we didn’t get any points from the game.
“I’m really disappointed as I think we did enough to get out with a result, at least a draw, but they scored with the only chance they had in the second half.
“Let’s improve and try to score more goals as I think that’s what is making the difference at the moment.”
Neves was Wolves’ top performer against the Toffees and saw a free-kick shave the woodwork towards the end.
Ultimately, though, it was a tale of coming up short at both ends of the pitch.
“It’s hard, you know. It’s football. I think we did enough to win the game, or least for a draw,” said Neves. “But like I said, this is football and you need to be focused – for every single second.”
