Many Wolves fans were delighted with the performance of captain Conor Coady after his side’s 0-0 draw against Chelsea on Wednesday night.
It was far from pretty, but it was exactly the sort of result that the Black Country club needed following their woeful start to the calendar year.
Coady led from the back as the visitors walked away from Stamford Bridge with a point in what was a solid defensive display from the 27-year-old.
Per Sofascore, Coady won 100% of the aerial duels that he challenged for, made seven clearances and accumulated a pass success rate of 89%.
Can Conor Coady become the next England captain?
Unsurprisingly, the plaudits that the central defender received were vast as supporters logged on to social media to make their feelings clear towards him, with fans hailing the skipper as “outstanding” at the heart of Nuno’s defence.
