Do you remember?

Wolves 1 Burnley 0 16th September 2018 in the Premier League at Molineux

This was the first three points at Molineux since they arrived back in the Premier League after the promotion from the Championship.

Wolves started lively in the game with Diogo Jota and Helder Costa testing Joe Hart in the Burnley goal with shots at goal.

Then 30 minutes into the game they should have been rewarded with goals when Jota was setup by Jimenez who watched his shot palmed away from Hart and then palmed away a low shot cross by Doherty and the defence cleared Jonny Otto’s rebound plus, he also denied another Doherty chance on the slide from a Ruben Neves Cross.

It looked like Wolves were going to take the lead in the game when James Tarkowski did a clearance after Jonny Otto used his right foot and bent an effort on goal.

Just before halftime Wolves had another chance in the game when Willy Boly when he volleyed over from a Moutinho corner.

Half Time Wolves 0 Burnley 0

Second half started the same where Wolves had left off in the first half of the game when Jota raced onto Bardsley’s poor touch of the ball to lay the ball onto Jimenez, but he blazed his shot on goal over the bar with the goal gaping.

Then Ruben Neves next tested Joe Hart in the goal with a long range shot at goal which was palmed away by him and before that Jota had a chance wide of the goalkeeper’s post.

The opening goal finally appeared in the game when good build up from the Wolves team when Costa fed Doherty and then Jimenez who guided the ball across Hart in off the post to give Wolves the 1-0 Lead.

Costa had a final contribution in the game before been substituted when he curled an effort in front of the south bank high into the stands.

Burnley had a chance to equalise when Matej Vydra volley his shot across the goal with Jack Cork failing to get contact to the ball at the back post.

Traore, Bonatini traded chances in the game to get another goal for the home side, but their shots were nowhere near the target and Bonatini was closest with his second shot at the goal which was cleared by the Burnley defender Tarkowski off the line.

Johann Berg Gudmundsson had a free kick in the game which went narrowly over the bar and then had a ricochet, but he failed to test goalkeeper Patricio in the Wolves goal.

Traore and Bonatini both linked up together again when a cross from Traore to Bonatini sent his shot wide of the goal and it didn’t matter in the end the game ended in a victory for the home side.
