Wolves beat a poor Watford side as they completed one of the unexpected away football results after losing their first three games of Premier League. It was proving to be another frustrating night for Wolves’ new manager Bruno Lage when Nelson Semedo missed after he was put clean through on goal on the hour mark.
Wolves were fortunate to get off the mark for the season when Francisco Sierralta put through his own net from across. It was Wolves’ new signing Hwang Hee-Chan who doubled the lead when he came on for his debut. He followed up and was rewarded with the rebound after Marcal hit the post.
Watford: Bachmann (6), Ngakia (6), Ekong (5), Sierralta (4), Rose (6), Sissoko (6), Etebo (5), Kucka (5), Sarr (7), Dennis (5), King (5).
Subs: Sema (5), Hernandez (5).
Wolves: Sa (6), Semedo (6), Coady (6), Saiss (5), Kilman (7), Marcal (7), Moutinho (7), Neves (6), Trincao (7), Jimenez (6), Traore (7).
Subs: Podence (7), Hwang (7).
Man of the match: Adama Traore
Watford boss Xisco Munoz: “The team was, for 60-65 minutes at a good level, but after the goal, we were a little down. We need to be a bit better in both boxes.” he added. “We need to create more. We can give better solutions and arrive better in the opposition box, and it’s three games now without scoring.”
Wolves manager Bruno Lage: “It was a good game, a good performance from our side. The first 15 or 20 minutes it was our game, the way we played, found spaces and created chances.” he added. “The second half, with the changes we made at half-time, the game came to us – we continued to create chances, and it’s a good result for us and a good result for our four games so far.”
