Wolverhampton Wanderers captain Danny Batth says that his side showed their mental toughness and resilience in defeating Burton Albion 4-0 last Saturday.

Wolverhampton Wanderers captain Danny Batth has said that his side showed their mental toughness and resilience in defeating Burton Albion 4-0 last Saturday.

Batth, who made his 200th appearance for Wolves in the away victory, featured as Nuno Espirito Santo's men shook off a 2-0 loss to Sheffield United last Wednesday.

The club's defeat to the Blades was only their second of the campaign and the win over Burton put them just one point behind Championship leaders Cardiff City.

"Saturday answered a lot of questions," Batth told the Express & Star. "The players showed their resilience and mental toughness.

"It was all about having the right attitude. I think we were licking our wounds a bit after Wednesday. You take it on the chin and it's about how you react - it's only one defeat and we have to make sure it doesn't become a string of results.

"The clean sheet pleases me more but three points are the aim. We're proud of the result, we've done well in the past few games but we won't be sitting back and revelling in this."

Wolves return from the international break with two Championship home games against Aston Villa and Preston North End respectively.
