JAMES HALLETT REPORTS ON WOLVES STOPPAGE TIME WIN AGAINST SPURS
A lot of fans had high hopes for Wolves against an injured and suspended Spurs side when they woke up this morning.
Before the game, both Wolves and Spurs fans came together and paid respect to fallen soldiers on this Remembrance Day.
The game started and not even 2 minutes in Pedro Porro got played down the left and cut it across the box to Brennan Johnson. An easy finish made it 1-0 to Spurs.
The first half was plagued with mistakes. Many a time the fans had to remind players to wake up and play the football we know they’re capable of.
A relatively uneventful first half came and went with the referee, Tim Robinson, already being berated all around the concourse. Wolves suffered with a lack of a clinical presence and set pieces.
These issues continued into the second half. Wolves regularly had chances that we just couldn’t get on target. Hwang and Cunha often found themselves in potentially dangerous positions but couldn’t even find the target.
The defence was doing their job however. Wolves were the more dominant and dangerous team in the second half. Spurs had the odd counter and corner but couldn’t test Jose Sa.
After some horrendous refereeing decisions, we had our break through. Cunha whipped a lovely ball over the Spurs defence to substitute Pablo Sarabia. A great control and even better finish past Vicario put Wolves level.
A nervy 6 added minutes turned into pandemonium for Wolves fans. A late counterattack opportunity arose from Doyle’s quick free quick. A nice pass out on the left to Sarabia and another quick low cross fell to Mario Lemina. The rest is history.
Wolves move up to 11th, before other games, with 15 points.
Full time Wolves 2-1 Tottenham
