Conor Coady has called Wolves' 2-1 Premier League win over Leicester City a "massive result".

The Wanderers made it six wins in eight league games on Sunday as goals from Ruben Neves and Daniel Podence lifted Wolves to seventh in the league.

Coady, who partnered Romain Saiss and Max Kilman in a back three, was heavily involved in the contest, doing enough to stop Patson Daka in the Foxes attack.

The Wolves captain hopes the victory can continue to push up the table to ensure they finish in the best possible position.

"We want to make sure we're fighting for something come the end of the season and come the last few games of the season," Coady told the Wolves official site.

"We've said all along that it's a game at a time and we're always like that in our football club and we never look too far ahead, and the first thing we spoke about then when we went in after full-time was recovering properly and get our rest in for the game coming up on Thursday.

"It's something we're looking forward to, but we focused on this one, and played like it was the last game on earth we were ever going to have, and now we'll look forward to the next one."

"Massive result"

Defeating Brendan Rodgers' side, despite not being at their best on the day, maybe remembered at the end of the campaign as one of the games that helped Wolves achieve a European place.

With Pedro Neto returning to action after 10 months out, alongside eye-catching individual performances from goalscorers Podence and Neves, Coady plauded his teammates for the performance

"[It took] grit, determination and character to stay in it," the England international said.

"We know how good Leicester are and I think we were a bit naive at times. But in these kinds of conditions in the Premier League, I don't think you can play your free-flowing best.

"Last week we were fantastic in how we wanted to play and we had one of the those games today when we had to stick in.

"We've scored two fantastic goals and we know we can play better, we know we can do things better, but a big plus was how we stuck together and were incredibly organised, and I think we showed that today.

"It was a massive, massive result for us."
