​Wolves boss Nuno Espirito Santo has conceded that his side simply weren't up to scratch after they lost 2-0 at home to Watford.

In a game where clear-cut chances were few and far between for both sides, Watford took the lead after 20 minutes thanks to an Etienne Capoue piledriver from 25 yards out. The away side took advantage of some sloppy play less than a minute later, and Roberto Pereyra finished smartly to put the game beyond the home side.

Speaking in his post-match press conference, as quoted by the Express and Star, Nuno admitted that his side didn't deserve to take any points from the match.

"Definitely yes of course (it was a frustrating afternoon) because we didn't play good, we didn't play well, we didn't perform. So when you don't perform you don't get the result and today was a disappointing day of course."

The Portuguese boss also emphasised where Wolves went wrong in the aftermath of Watford's first goal, and what effect the second had.

"When you concede, you must control the situation knowing that OK, you get a goal, but there is a lot of game to do. And you cannot in the immediate action afterwards make another mistake that unbalances and creates the second goal of Watford.

"Then everything becomes more difficult so basically it was a very bad first half, very bad. In the second half I think we showed some character."

Nuno's Wolves now face a trip to Brighton, where they face a formidable Seagulls side at the Amex.
