Wolves rev up for Brighton with go karting trip

Wolves are aiming to run roughshod all over Brighton’s survival hopes – after preparing for the game by going go-karting.

Head coach Nuno Espirito Santo also said the players have already hit the beaches – with his full blessing.

Nuno and the squad have just returned from a five-day warm weather training camp in Marbella where the players trained in the mornings before spending leisure time together in the afternoons and evenings.

Pictures have since emerged on social media of a podium with Helder Costa standing on the number one post, Jonny Otto shown second with Morgan Gibbs-White positioned third.

Some played golf, some went to the beach, but they also went karting,” said the Wolves boss.
“Some were fast, some were not so fast. The ones who you would think were fast, were not so quick, so everything changed.
“I’ll let the players tell you who was fastest. But I did not drive!
“Once they finished training, the time was their own, but instead of going home, they spent it together, that’s the only difference.
“This is the kind of environment we want to give them – joking, playing golf, having activities.”

Nuno was happy for the players to spend time relaxing on the beach once their training was done, all to add to the team spirit.

Some of them had their families there and they went to the beach,” he said.
“If we have a good relationship as as a group or a family, then when we compete, everything will be easier.”
Wolves host relegation-threatened Brighton aiming to bounce back after two defeats which have seen them lose in the FA Cup semi-final to Watford 3-2 before going down 3-1 at Southampton last week.

But the Portuguese coach insists the players are ready and refreshed to do battle again.
Nuno added: “There’s is a always pressure on us to compete and perform.
“After our break, I can tell you we are ready for this game. At the end of the season, we will see where we finish.”

Wolves again have a fully-fit squad to choose from for the visit of the Seagulls, who have lost five in a row without scoring.
