Carl Ikeme’s club, Wolverhampton Wanderers have been promoted to the Premier League following Brentford’s dramatic late draw with Fulham on Saturday.

They club has become the first team to be promoted from the Championship this term because Fulham failed to beat Brenford at home.

And manager Nuno Espirito Santo wants his team to be fully focused on winning the league title.

He said after the match, “It’s not a party; it’s a game.

“We don’t think about the result, we think about how we want to perform – the tasks that we have to do to win the game.

“After we win the game, it’s OK. But before that, don’t get distracted. Don’t even think about celebrating – we haven’t achieved anything yet.

“The game is on Sunday. I don’t talk about ‘what ifs’, I’m only focused on what I have to do and what my players have to do on Sunday.

“It’s going to be a tough game; 12 o’clock, it’s not a party.”
