11.02.2017… Wolves (a)…

Wolverhampton Wanderers 0 Newcastle United 1

Molineux… Saturday February 11th… 5.30pm

Attendance: 24,876 (4,200 away fans)

Ticket: £25 – Programme: £3

It was cold, it was wet, the game was poor, but we won. And at this stage of the season, that’s all that matters…

Aleksandar Mitrovic grabbed the winner on the stroke of half time, very much against the run of play. To rub salt into Wolves’ wounds he was possibly lucky to be on the pitch, following an earlier coming together with Wolves goalkeeper Carl Ikeme, when already on a yellow card. Rafa made the very wise decision to withdraw him at the interval, he certainly wouldn’t have lasted another 45 minutes…

Pre Match: Outside Molineux…

The second half was more of the same, and much of the credit for the victory must go to a defending masterclass from Jamaal Lascelles and Ciaran Clark…

Job done though, and glad to get this one out of the way. Wolverhampton is never an enjoyable place to visit. Hopefully we’ll be able to give it a miss next season…

Second Half: Wolves in Possession…

Another tough game to follow on Tuesday night at Norwich. Having Dwight Gayle back in the squad is a massive bounus, but Norwich are in good form. I’d be more than happy with a draw…

Next game for me, Birmingham v QPR next Saturday…
