Nuno Espirito Santo has conceded the fact Wolves played badly in their 3-1 defeat against Southampton.
Nathan Redmond netted a brace and Shane Long netted the winner as Saints moved one step closer to their safety. Willy Bolly scored the only goal for the visiting side.
Despite the defeat, the newly promoted side remained in pole position for a European berth as both Leicester City and Everton also lost their respective matches to hand Wolves leverage.
The Midland giants now have lost two out of their last three matches and the manager feels they weren’t up to their standard against Saints. “I think it was a bad game. A bad performance.
“Since the beginning of the game, our defensive organisation was not at our best.
“The only moment we played the way we can play was after the moment we conceded (the opener) until the moment we equalised.
“Those were the moments we played better.
“We were on the front foot and we equalised. The game was there for us, but we conceded in a way we cannot concede.
The game became harder and the second half was bad. A bad performance.
“We are a team that wants to compete in every game, and we didn’t compete at our best.
“We need to regroup, analyse, look at the game and react for the next one.”
