Wolves captain Conor Coady has vowed to pile on the misery for out-of-form Brighton .

The two clubs missed out on an FA Cup Final appearance with losses to Watford and Manchester City respectively in this month’s semis, and neither has picked up a point since returning to Premier League action after their Wembley heartache.

Albion’s hangover has seen them crash at home to Bournemouth and Cardiff ; leaving them fourth-bottom and in danger of relegation ahead of Saturday’s trip to Molineux.

Promoted Wolves are comfortably safe with 47 points in eighth place and still have an eye on a Europa League place, so Coady is demanding a strong finish over their remaining five games.

“We’re looking at Brighton now, we need to make sure we’re ready.

“The target is beating Brighton.

“Everyone talks about finishing seventh and it’d be fantastic, it really would, but we can only take it a game at a time which is what we’ve done all season. That’s what has got us to this point. We’ll keep on doing that and see where it takes us.

Their form against the Big Six this season, in contrast, has seen them get wins over Liverpool, Manchester United (twice), Chelsea and Tottenham and draws against Manchester City and Arsenal.

Coady, 26, admitted: “We’ve got to get better. We need to look back on these games and see where we’re going wrong and try and put it right.

“It’s a big week for us and we need to take advantage of it.”
