Wolves skipper gives his honest verdict on the new front four



Wolverhampton Wanderers skipper Danny Batth has heaped praise on their new look attack, according to the Express and Star.

Owing to the January signings of Andreas Weimann and Ben Marshall, the return to fitness of Ivan Cavaleiro and the consistent form of Helder Costa, Wolves’ new look front four have been devastating in the past few matches.

Once again, the attacking quartet proved too much for the opposition as Wolves beat Cardiff 3-1 recorded their fourth successive win to move eight points clear of the drop zone.

Skipper Danny Batth, who scored twice on the weekend, decided to hand some praise to Weimann, Marshall, Costa and Cavaleiro.

Lambert has got the front four playing in a fluid and interchangeable formation and this change of tactic has paid dividends so far.

Talking about the attacking quartet, the Wolves skipper said:

“I think Andi Weimann has been a revelation up front with his movement and ability to being players into play.

“He said to me when he first got here that he feels his best position is through the middle.

“I think he really does cause a threat with his dynamic qualities.

“We’ve got Ivan Cavaleiro coming back to full fitness and Ben Marshall has been a good addition, which all takes the heat off Helder Costa a little bit and we saw that on Saturday.

“He was opening up and getting opportunities so hopefully we can keep them all fit and on the pitch.”

Danny Batth’s two goals were both assisted by Ben Marshall and the captain reserved special praise for the new addition.

Batth added:

“Even in training, he gives you something to have a run at and that’s what we’ve been missing at Molineux for the last two or three years.

“I’ve been saying for a long time that we don’t score enough goals from set-pieces and that kind of delivery always gives lads a chance to get their head on it.

“I’m really happy.

“Marshall’s a good friend of mine – I knew him from Sheffield Wednesday and I knew what kind of quality he would bring to the team.

“He adds that vision and technique to open up a defence, whether it’s a through ball or a cross.”
