Loan Watch: The Hoff scores a brace (video) and more
Andy Keogh was set aside on the bench for Bellamy today – the star back from injury prior to what was expected – and he scored the first Cardiff goal just before half time.
But Barnsley fought pack and former Wolves player Schackell scored (!) to level it up. But another former Wolves player – the Nigerian midfielder Olofinjana found the net for Cardiff after 67 minutes and they could hold out for a win, despite having one man sent off with ten minutes left.
Leicester City – with Carl Ikeme watching their goal – were victorious against Scunthorpe. The now manager less side scored three goals against Scunnies one, perhaps because of manager to be Sven-Goran Ericson watching the game from the VIP booth.
Ericson saw Leicester play a very good game and Waghorn got the first goal and then Dyer the second ten minutes into the second half.
But Ikeme then had to let one in when a Tagwell shot reflected from O’Connor and into the net. Nothing to do about if from Carl, though. Moussa scored the third for Leicester, coming in from the bench in the 87th minute – scoring in the 93rd.
I believe it’s just a matter of time before former England coach Sven Goran Ericsson will be announced as the next manager of Leicester City. The win today put them above the relegation line and I believe they are one of the better teams in the Championship and that the Swede will make them play even better – despite some Leicester fans not too happy about the change of manager.
In League One Peterborough United won against Carlisle away with an only goal by Mackail-Smith after half an hour of the game. Nat Mendez-Laing was on the bench for the match. It was a lucky win for Posh, as Carlisle had many chances to score – a couple of them after mistakes by the Posh keeper Lewis.
Walsall lost again at home against Yeovil. David Davis played for the ninety and provided the free leading to the goal by fouling Shaun McDonald in the 70th minute. Gavin Williams found the head of Adam Virgo just inside the area and he headed into the net brilliantly. And that was to be the only goal of the game.
And. Finally. Wolves striker Stefan ‘The Hoff’ Maierhofer hit gold today as he scored twice – in the 44th and 49th minute – when his team MSV Duisburg did beat Oberhausen with 3-0 yesterday.
Just watch this (5:40 and 8:10 into the clip. And interview after 12:40):
At least and at last some golden on this black day for Wolves.
