Wolves defender Kilman: It's now clicking with Lopetegui

 Wolves defender Max Kilman feels they're now understanding the demands of manager Julen Lopetegui.

The addition of Craig Dawson has been a huge help, and coincided with Kilman's improved form.

Kilman said: “It doesn't matter who you're playing with, it's more about the team.

"A lot of our success in the second part of the season has come from being a bit more organised as a team, more than the defence.

“It's a team game, you start the attack from your goalkeeper, but also start defending from your strikers, so it's a combination of everyone gelling together and we're much better as a team. Everything's clicked more."

Wolves have played in a back four since Lopetegui came in but switched to a back five in the second half of the win over Tottenham.

Nathan Collins came back in and impressed for those 45 minutes, as Wolves controlled the game.

Kilman added: “We'd not played it in such a long time.

“We've been so used to playing in a back four this season. I played it a lot last season and we played it a lot as a team, but we had to adapt in the game.

“I think tactically it was spot on and I think it really helped us press Tottenham in higher areas, be closer to our players and win the ball back and create chances going forward after it."
