Wolverhampton Wanderers put in a positive display to earn their fourth point in five days after earning a goalless draw at home to Leicester City.

It was a game of few clear cut chances but the hosts for the majority of the game made themselves hard to break down in the three at the back formation, while at the other end looking threatening on the counter-attack.

However, they failed to really give Foxes goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel much to really think about with his only save of note coming when he made a great stop to deny substitute Fabio Silva from close range.

Confidence from Arsenal victory

At the start of the week, Wolves had been on an eight-game Premier League winless run and questions were begging to be asked in terms of the future status of Nuno Espirito Santo as manager of the club.

However, a vital win against an in-form Arsenal on Tuesday clearly raised the confidence back up from the squad and that showed in today's performance.

However, despite not getting the win that they potentially felt that they deserved, the performances that Santo's side have put in during the last week will give the club a platform to build on ahead of their FA Cup fifth-round clash against Southampton.

Positive to see Jonny return

Jonny Castro made his first appearance for the club this season after completing his recovery from an ACL injury.

The full-back has been a consistent member of the squad since he arrived in the summer of 2018 and with his absence, the left wing-back role at certain points this campaign has been a weak point for Wolves.

Therefore, despite the Spaniard only having 45 minutes of action against Leicester, Wanderers fans will be delighted to see him back in action and it will provide them with some hope of more consistency in that spot from now until the end of the season.

Impressive defensive display

It is well known that at times this season Wolves' defence has been shaky and unreliable.

Although, today they put in a defensive performance that the Premier League have seen on countless occasions since their promotion to the division in 2018.

Leicester, who this campaign with the presences of James Maddison and Harvey Barnes have looked deadly when going forward, were not allowed spaces in dangerous attacking areas on many occasions at all.

This is something that will particularly please Santo which he will hope to continue on a more regular basis in the foreseeable future especially considering that the Wanderers have only kept two clean sheets in the last 16 top-flight games.
