SEAN STANTON REVIEWS WOLVES VICTORY OVER VILLA AT MOLINEUX
HALF TIME Wolves 1-0 Villa
From the restart Wolves tried to get on the front foot. Costa broke through from the left but Martinez saved his shot.
Villa surged forward and Ashley Young shot just wide.
Wolves were under pressure again. Toti and Semedo were booked.
Corners, freekicks and crosses rained in but Wolves stood strong.
Hwang came on for Cunha.
Mings blasted over from three yards out after a set piece and Buendia went close again.
Neto beat his man in the box and crossed but a slight deflection meant Hwang couldn’t quite nudge it in.
Traore, Collins and Joao came on and Wolves saw out the final few minutes with no real scares.
FINAL SCORE WOLVES 1-0 VILLA
It wasn’t pretty but it was a fantastic performance after last week’s annihilation. Total commitment from everybody.
A special mention for the two guys who took most of the stick last week, Sa and Matheus.
Sa’s first half save was superb and although Matheus didn’t contribute that much in attack he defended magnificently. Constantly chasing back and making challenges. Giving everything for the cause.
By the end of the weekends fixtures Wolves could well be mathematically safe.
