Terry Connor has praised his Wolves players who came back from being 3-0 down after 15 minutes to draw 4-4 away at Swansea City.

Andrea Orlandi scored the fastest Premier League goal of the season, netting after just 24 seconds before Joe Allen and Nathan Dyer made it 3-0.

Steven Fletcher pulled one back for Wolves, Danny Graham then made it 4-1 but a brace from Matt Jarvis and David Edwards goal earned Wolves an unlikely point.


"I certainly didn't enjoy the opening 20 minutes or so but all credit to the lads they pulled it round," Terry Connor told Sky Sports.

"At the end of the game if there was going to be a team that was going to win it, it would have been us."

Wolves' relegation status had already been confirmed after a 2-0 home defeat by Manchester City last Sunday.

"Looking back now maybe there is a little bit of a hangover from last week, thanks to going down, so the first 15 minutes were not the best by a long way.

"But to their credit they fought back and at half-time we just encouraged them to keep doing more of the same, to keep being brave and keep going for the game.

Fight back cheers Connor


"Today we got some reward for the team spirit, energy and drive that the players have shown throughout the season."

Connor has been a coach with Wanderers since 1999, stepping up to manger following Mick McCarthy's sacking in February, but he is refusing to be drawn on his future at the club.

He added: "I'll give the review and see where the club want to go and if I'm part of that then great, if not I'll accept whatever the club do.

"I've had 13 great years there and I'll do what's best for Wolverhampton Wanderers.

"The only thing from my point of view is not being able to get enough points to keep us in the Premier League but I've enjoyed every last minute of it.

"I just hope the club can re-build quickly and reach the Premiership again."
