Those Wolves players, having been in such fine form, six games unbeaten, they would have wanted the next game to come around quickly – not have to wait a fortnight.
When you are turning heads, picking up really good results, you just do not want a break. You want to carry on building momentum.
It is a lot different when you are losing, of course – then the chance to recharge the batteries is much welcome. It can be a blessing.
From my own experience, it is a bit hard to go away to play for your country and then come back and get focused, feeling right at it for the next game.
You never forget the club’s way of thinking but you can return and only have a couple days of full training before the game, when you are used to having all week to prepare.
I think Nuno, though, knows how to focus the group and get them back in order again.
It does knock you about a bit, the travel, but that group of players knows Nuno’s philosophy, the fearless 3-4-3 formation, inside-out.
And the key for this clash is that Wolves will most likely have the same starting XI – for the ninth league game running.
That could be the difference-maker and from the nutritionist, to the kit man, to the club doctor, the staff deserve a lot of credit for keeping all the squad in tip-top shape.
I think they will go out there the same as before, with the crowd firmly behind them, and get cracking again.
Making it three wins on the trot – and three on the spin at home in the league – would be fantastic, so fingers crossed it is bask to usual service against the Hornets.
