Wolves manager Walter Zenga said:

"I'm feeling good because the team played good, especially in the second half.

"We deserved to win the game without a doubt but we have to understand we can't give them one chance like this in the last minute of the game.

"Perhaps in the first half the quality wasn't there as we had hoped but then in my opinion the quality showed, we played some nice football.

"It is true sometimes that too much change can create confusion but if you work it the right way, change means you have a fresh team all the time."
