Head coach discusses win against Wolves.

Jesse Marsch gave his thoughts to the media after his side finished their opening match of the Premier League campaign, with a victory.

The Whites fell behind against Wolverhampton Wanderers early on in the match, but fought back well to come from behind and take the three points.

Speaking after the match had finished, Marsch felt his side responded well to going a goal behind and revealed he has spoken to the team about the importance of starting well.

He said: “We’ve talked a lot about good starts and I actually thought we had a good start.

“We gave up a little bit of a strange goal and we had said that they like to play a lot of chips to the second post.

“I thought even after going down that we responded well in the rest of the half and pushed the game, found the goal and in some ways a little unlucky not to find the second goal in the first half.

“To give credit to Wolves they pushed the game really hard in the first 15 minutes of the second half and we weren’t at our best.

“I knew at that point that making the right subs was going to be important and Mateusz Klich came in and made a big difference, then Sam Greenwood as well.

“It was a good to see those guys come on and make a difference and then to see us be resilient like we know we are, and find a way to validate the good work with a good three points.

“That's what I take away from the match in general. First, we had a strong first half and responded really well going down a goal, that we weathered the storm in the second half.

“We were still fairly stable and as much as they had the ball and they were moving around, it's not like they created huge chances.

“The response of the subs and the performances we got off the bench, those are the things I think that were important and valuable for us moving forward.

"I think that we're clear with what we want the tactics and the playing model to look like is going to be helpful for us.”
