JAMES HALLETT REPORTS ON WOLVES 6-0 DEFEAT TO BRIGHTON
Our recent euphoria from Tuesday’s game was abruptly halted by a dominant Brighton side that blitzed them in the first half. Within the first 15 minutes, Brighton had already taken a commanding 2-0 lead against a Wolves team that carelessly surrendered possession in vulnerable areas.
The first goal arrived just six minutes into the game, as Deniz Undav capitalized on Solly March’s hard work to prod home Veltman’s low cross. Matheus Nunes was then caught out in possession in his own half, allowing Julio Enciso to set up an unmarked Pascal Gross for Brighton’s second.
Although Neto tested Jason Steele with a shot from Nunes’ pass, Brighton soon added a third goal with Gross’s sensational chip from the edge of the box. Wolves’ misery continued when Danny Welbeck headed in Pervis Estupinan’s cross at the back post to make it 4-0 at the break.
Wolves made three substitutions at half-time, but it was to no avail as Nathan Collins gifted the ball to Welbeck for Brighton’s fifth goal just after the restart. Brighton continued to dominate and put the final nail in the coffin with their sixth goal, thanks to Undav’s opportunistic chip following Nunes’ careless loss of possession.
We couldn’t even manage a consolation goal despite Daniel Podence’s one-on-one chance against Steele. By this stage most of the away fans were headed for the exit. The final whistle signaled a humiliating defeat for Wolves, who will need to regroup quickly and move on from this demoralizing result.
