Santo demands rapid response

Nuno Espirito Santo has urged his table-topping Wolves side to bounce back from the shock of being beaten 2-0 at Molineux by Nottingham Forest.

Two first-half goals from Kieran Dowell and Ben Osborn helped Aitor Karanka's side seal a memorable victory against a team that are 1/500 to be promoted this season.

It was Wolves' first defeat in the Championship since October, and Nuno admitted afterwards: "Bad result, bad performance.

"I think we didn't do a good game and it is a tough result losing but we lost after 13 games - we knew that this day would come and now it's about bouncing back.

"In the first moment it is disappointing and I am conscious that we didn't do a good game. The goals we conceded were mistakes but this is football, it happens on both sides of the pitch.

"Now we are going to work all this week to prepare for Ipswich like we always do - go and fight for the three points."

Wolves can be backed at 8/11 to beat Mick McCarthy's team on Saturday and at 7/1 to win the match from behind.
