Wolves, Southampton share the spoils at Molineux

Honours even Walcott celebrates getting back on the scoresheet for Southampton before Neto levels for Wolves

Wolves Substitute Neto Salvages 1-1 Draw With Southampton

We are all ready to start, but I came from the bench and did my best to help the team and I did. "We were better second-half, reacted well to the goal", Nuno explained after a result which left Wolves ninth.

"A lot of teams won't want to play against us". It's not disappointing (to not start). "I'm my best critic and I know that's not good enough for me not to score".

"I do my job and that's what I did".

On Wolves, he added: "I think we've done well, apart from some games where we've been unfortunate, like the game against Newcastle, when we conceded a last-minute goal". They press very well, they played very good. We are sad about the result, but we have to focus on the next one. They are always a tricky side to break down at Molineux, with their sole defeat at home this season coming against Manchester City.

Pedro Neto came off the bench to equalize in the 75th, turning in a rebound after Raul Jimenez's shot came off the post.

But he admitted his lack of celebration was due to not knowing whether or not he was in an offside position.

And he said: "I didn't celebrate because a year ago with VAR for me was very bad". I didn't even celebrate because I didn't know what the decision would be.

"We have to be alive throughout the game".

"We try to be solid and we managed that. It was really quick, but I was there to get the goal".

Wolves had to do without captain and defender Conor Coady, who missed a league game for the club for the first time since September 2017 having been in self-isolation. It saw them field a four-man defence.

Neto said: "It was different".

"We wanted to go for it and created chances". We have trust as a unit, we want to play together and that's the way we are. Let's see if we play a back four again, (but) that's not the point.
