Wolves draw after late County goal (video)
Manager Mick McCarthy was sad that Wolves haven’t shaken off the habit to concede late goals as Notts County managed to get an equaliser with two minutes to go at Meadow Lane yesterday.
I agree, Wolves has to keep the ball in the team and not try to score a second with five minutes left to play. Otherwise Wolves played very well the first 45 with a team that probably will resemble our starting eleven against Blackburn in August in most positions.
Only Guédioura and Edwards still slightly injured and everything else looks hunky dory. Maybe one or two signings will enter and a couple will go, but we have nothing of the kind of panic that many other teams faces when the window is about to close.
Our beloved team of young and hungry are one year older and more experienced and if you look at the results for the second half of last season, Wolves were a team for the middle of the league. Three weeks to go now and I can’t wait. Bring on Celtic and then the Premier League!
Wolves:Ikeme (Hennessey 65), Zubar (Foley 45), Ward (Elokobi 65), O’Hara (Milijaś 45), Johnson (Craddock 65), Berra (Stearman 65), Hammill (Kightly 45), Henry (capt) (Davis 65), Doyle (Keogh 65), Fletcher (Ebanks-Blake 45), Jarvis (Hunt 65).
P.S. Also yesterday. Wolves Academy Under 18’s got a draw against home team Southend at full time in a tournament but lost out with 4-2 on penalties. Zele Ismail was the goalscorer and I wish Wolves U18’s good luck against Leicester today. D.S.
