PremierLeague-News.Com - The Wolves boss was left lamenting a host of missed chances at Molineux that left his side holding on for a point at the end of a match that they almost entirely dominated against Fulham
PremierLeague-News.Com - Breaking Sport Transfer News ! Wolverhampton Wanderers' head coach Bruno Lage told his players to "grow up" after being held to a goalless draw by Fulham despite dominating the match and missing two "obvious chances to score goals" at Molineux Pedro Neto and Morgan Gibbs-White were both guilty of spurning a golden chance in each half to break the deadlock for the hosts when presented with a pair of open goals, which would have proved even more costly had José Sá not saved a late penalty from Aleksandar Mitrović to save a point. "Emotional control" was raised as something that the team leads to learn if they are to keep up their pressure on the opposition's goal until the final whistle. Lage was though pleased with the performance overall, if not the result, a felt his side were nonetheless deserving of all three points.

"Sometimes our players faced their goalkeeper, I think there were two situations without their goalkeeper in the goal. First, with Pedro and the second one with Morgan. "I think it's clear chances, obvious chances, to score goals. So, in the end, what we look for is the performance. Again, another good performance, with personality. "And I can see by the way the fans responded at the end that they enjoyed the performance. Now it's time to continue to work.

." Some of that work that needs to be done is with a view to keeping their composure and staying disciplined for the full 90 minutes, which the Wolves boss went on to explicitly state. "The other thing, and I just spoke with the players, is that we need to grow up," Lage added. "It’s the emotional control and I think in the last 10 minutes we lost a little bit of our positions. I put people with fresh energy on to try to explore more of the game on the sides because they were more worried about closing inside, and we don't get a chance. "When the game comes to that part in the emotional control, we lose a little bit the positions, we lose the rest defence, we lose our balance and we give chances for the opponent to score. So that's one more thing that the team needs, to grow up." What do you make of Lage's remarks? Have your say in the comments...
