Latest News On Wolves
…or perhaps late news would be a better name for this. I’ve got a couple of others projects running so I’m a little short of time at the moment. That’s why I’m late and do these weekly short-cuts, but hopefully I will be able to resume reporting on a close to daily basis soon.
Saturday and midweek some of our out on-loan players kicked some ball. Let’s start with the Championship.
Greg Halford was an important cog for Pompey when he hit the post with a header and the ball went out to Dave Kitson who could score their first goal against Donny away on Saturday. The final score was 0-2.
Andy Keogh went close to score against Leeds Saturday, but his shot was blocked. Instead it was Leeds who came out as winners in the game and Andy was substituted by Maynard after the hour.
Keogh started for Bristol City again today, but was subbed for Maynard before the hour against Leicester away in a game they lost with 2-1. Keogh does not seem to get any chances and went offside a couple of times. Maynard is on his way back and gets more and more playing time. It does not look good.
Sam Vokes is new out on loan to Sheffield United. On Tuesday he started for Blades against Reading, but without any luck in the scoring department. But the striker who replaced him in the 66th minute – Bogdanovich – scored and rescued a point for the team. Not good at all for Vokes if he wants to play from start for them in the future.
Nathaniel Mendez-Laing came on for Peterborough against Charlton after the hour when they were down with 2-1. Langmead made an own goal ten minutes before time, but Nat took a corner on injury time that former Wolves player Little managed to nod to Mackail-Smith who scored for Posh. But it was too little to late for the League One team.
Sam Winnall joined the action for Burton after an hour against top team in League Two Chesterfield. Scott Malone was out with tonsillitis. And they won for the third team this season against them. Goal by Webster after five minutes and that turned out to be the winner. Winnall had an attempt from the box that went wide.
Sam Winnall played for half an hour again against Torquay on Tuesday in a match they lost by an only goal. Malone was on the bench, probably still with a slight illness. It is rumoured now that both will play against Hereford tomorrow.
Maybe with Malone in a little more advanced role as the back who subbed him when ill has played well and they need a little edge and Malone is actually the player with most assists to goals in Burton this season.
Dunleavy still resides on the bench for Barnet and they signed him for another month. One wonders why. He has only played for a couple of minutes for them so far.
The Wolves Reserves and Development team goalkeeper Aaron McCarey has gone out on an emergency loan for an initial month to AFC Telford. The North Conference Team play Harrogate Town tomorrow – hopefully with Aaron between the uprights.
The Wolves Reserves played against Arsenal on Tuesday and they are reported to have done it well. Goal by James Spray in the first half after an assist by Jody Craddock and Mujangi Bia scored in the second for Wolves from up close with the head after a fine cross by new guy Griffiths.
Unfortunately, though, Arsenal scored a couple aswell and the match ended a two all draw. Beside Craddock and Mujangi Bia, Mouyokolo also played from the first team.
You can read all about the game at the Wolves official site and while you are there pop in to the shop to order some items aswell, as they have an offer to deliver with free postage and packaging this month. Good for my readers in Australia, New Zealand and China and other far away places on the globe. 😆
What else? It is reported that the profits are rising for the Wolves owner Morgans company Redrow. That’s very good as his financial situation is closely knit to Wolves, of course.
Ronald Zubar is reported slightly injured (ankle) after the Arsenal game. Dave Edwards is back, but Hunty seem to be a few days from fitness still.
It’s of course a great match on Sunday and I will – as always – present you with my pre-game thoughts ahead of it. Until then (and after) Up The Wolves!
