Wolverhampton Wanderers boss Nuno Espirito Santo believes that his side "deserved" their hard-fought 2-1 Championship win over Queens Park Rangers.

Wolverhampton Wanderers boss Nuno Espirito Santo has claimed that his side "deserved" their 2-1 win over Queens Park Rangers.

Strikes from Alfred N'Diaye and Helder Costa had Wolves two goals up and cruising at half time in Saturday's Championship clash at Molineux.

However, the hosts halved the deficit in the second half through Conor Washington and had to hold out until the final whistle, Conor Coady making a vital last-minute goalline clearance.

"It was a tough win but a good win, a good result," Nuno told the Express & Star after the game. "I think we deserved it – we created a lot of chances and it was good work from the boys.

"We battled. Sometimes you have to attack, sometimes you have to defend and we defended well. They're a tough team to defend against, long balls, big guys, so I'm happy for the win.

"I think we did a good first half with good moments of football, a lot of chances and beautiful goals. It was very good. The second half was different.

"They were direct, second balls, the goal came early. We should take time to settle down and be more compact. We keep on going. It's a team effort."

The result, combined with Derby County's 1-1 draw with Norwich City, means that Wolves have increased their lead at the top of the Championship table to 13 points.
