Ronald Zubar talks about the Stoke City battle

14 04 2010

Zubar has now cemented his position as Wolves' right back.

Wolves defender Ronald Zubar has admitted his relief after securing a point against Stoke City on Sunday.

The Frenchman says he has never experienced a game of that nature before but thinks the team defended very well.

He said: “I’ve never played in a game like that before, I couldn’t believe it! But Stoke do well and I have nothing bad to say about them at all. They work very hard and they do very well with that way of playing.

“And they have got 43 points so that shows how hard they are to beat – they can’t be lucky all the time. They score goals from playing that way and it’s very difficult to defend against.

Rory Delap does very well with those throw-ins – it is more easy to defend a corner than one of his throws. The ball comes in so quickly and it changes direction in their air as well, so it’s very hard for defenders.

“Thankfully, Jody and Christophe did superbly well heading all those balls out. Stoke came to win and it was a real battle, so we were all very happy with a point.”
