Flitcroft on Wolves Workout

20 July 2013

Reds Manager David Flitcroft spoke to the press following his side's per-season fixture with Wolves at Oakwell.

"It was the workout we wanted," he said. "You've got a wolves team with players hurting from last season and a point to prove with a new manager.

"We started slow but we took it too literally that it was a pre-season game. We upped our tempo in the second half and showed more aggression.

"Our goals with the interplay, the one-touch passing - I was delighted with.

"The goals conceded were poor and concern me a little bit but we've two weeks to get it right.

"We've had a good look at a few different things today."

Jacob Mellis and Chris O'Grady got the goals in the 2-2 draw against Wolves.

"Mells' assist were good last season and his goals were okay. He'll convert chances because he has got Premiership quality. The sky's the limit for Mells."

Trialist Cristiano Lopez was given 20 minutes and Flitcroft will keep an eye on the Spanish forward, "He's been passed on to us. He's come through the youth system at Real Madrid, he's looking quite sharp. we've played against a Championship back four in Ricketts, Stearman, Batth and Elokobi - I wanted him tested today.
