Liam Keen comment: Wolves are proving the doubters wrong

With another win to their name, Wolves are in a good place.

To have begun the season after a tumultuous summer, with a head coach who arrived just four days before the start to the campaign, Wolves were expected to struggle.

But Gary O’Neil and his charges have proven the doubters wrong and are going from strength to strength.

Defensive consistency

Although they conceded after three minutes against Spurs, the whole squad deserve credit for quickly recovering and taking control of the fixture.

Max Kilman, Craig Dawson and Toti Gomes have all been consistently excellent for a number of weeks and have given Wolves a platform to build from.

Craig Dawson has now picked up five yellow cards and will be a huge loss when he is suspended for the trip to Fulham.

But skipper Kilman deserves a special mention for how he has performed recently.

Good in the air, strong physically, positive in possession – Kilman has barely put a foot wrong of late and his form has gone under the radar.
