Wolverhampton Wanderers manager Paul Lambert has labelled his side’s performance in last night’s 2-1 victory over Brentford as “outstanding,” reports the club’s official website.
Late goals from Matt Doherty and Helder Costa handed Lambert’s side back-to-back victories, to ease looming relegation fears.
Last night’s victory, combined with Saturday’s nervy 1-0 triumph over Rotherham United, has lifted Wolves to 18th in the Sky Bet Championship, handing them a four-point cushion to the relegation zone.
Despite trailing at Griffin Park for much of last night’s clash, Lambert insisted he was always confident his side would find a breakthrough, he said: “Even at 1-0, I didn’t think we should have been down. I thought we were performing well. They scored with their only real attack of the first half.
“I never felt severe stress or pressure at all because, even though we were a goal down, we were creating.
“It was just a matter of time before we got one. I thought for the 90 minutes we were outstanding against a good side.”
The result now leaves Wolves with a chance of recording their third consecutive victory when they face high-flying Fulham at Craven Cottage on Saturday.
Saturday’s match is Wolves’ last fixture in March, due to an international break, but as the season enters April, Lambert’s side face crucial clashes with Nottingham Forest, Bristol City and Blackburn Rovers- all sides that are also battling relegation.
