Nuno Espirito Santo’s side finally got back to winning ways thanks to a stunning stoppage-time strike from Traore on Friday night.

It was the Spaniard’s first Premier League goal since December 2019, and he is determined to keep playing a prominent role over the final weeks of the season.

“I’m so happy, not only me, we worked through the 90 minutes and won, which is important,” said Traore.

“If you keep working, the opportunity will come.

“I trust in my quality, I know the moment will come. I had one chance with my left in the first half and knew I’d have another chance in the second half.

“I’m trying to improve my final end every day, and keep going, and if I can grow like a player, it will help the team.

“I’ve been working on not only my final end, different aspects of the game with Nuno, and this is what I like to do.

“Grow like a player, keep working, keep improving myself, so these ways help the team also.”

The dramatic victory at Craven Cottage saw Wolves move up to 38 points for the season, with seven matches left to play.

Next up is a clash with basement boys Sheffield United at Molineux on Saturday.

“It feels so nice. I think we’ve been working so hard,” said Traore.

“I know it’s been tough for us, but the mentality for us is working through the game.

“It doesn’t matter how the game goes, keep fighting, keep pushing and in the end the win will come.

“I think that was the mentality after we conceded three against West Ham.”

He added: “It was very important for us, keep the defensive mentality and push through the game.

“That was the key, so we are happy, and we move on.”
