The second-half loss in the 3-3 draw at Brighton was unforgivable, Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves admits. After Neves’s penalty gave them a 3-1 lead after the first 45 minutes, Wanderers were well on their way to victory on the south coast.
But the visitors paid a heavy price for the penalty they conceded 11 seconds after the restart, while the Seagulls took a deserved point. International Portugal Neves maintains that lessons must be learned: “It’s our responsibility. In the first half we did a good job, but a team from the Premier League can not start the second half like that,” he told the official website of Wolves. There are no excuses, it’s our fault. “There are no excuses, it’s our responsibility. ” It’s about expanding and worrying about what we have done terribly. After a foul by Joao Moutinho, Neal Maupay converted Brighton’s penalty before Lewis Dunk equalized 20 minutes from time. After Romain Saiss’s header, Wolves were in complete charge of the game at the Amex Stadium, Dan Burn’s own goal and Neves’ first goal of the season quickly cancelled the opening goal of Aaron Connolly. The West Midlands side has now gone ten games without con con in the top flight. We make mistakes that we should not make,” he said. “We need to develop as a team and individually. We ought to be a lot more militant, and we’ve got a long way to go. The point win leaves Brighton three points clear of the relegation zone, while they have played two games more than 18th-placed Fulham. This season, the men of Graham Potter are yet to win at home and have registered just one achievement in their last 15 games. He claims the way the draw shows his players are up for the challenge of battling for survival. It demonstrates that we are fighting, it demonstrates that we believe in ourselves, it demonstrates that we can keep going. Of course, when you’re down 1-3 at home, when you suffer, it’s difficult. You have to dig in to find something somewhere, and I thought that was what the players did, a great effort, a great reaction.
