Vital Wolves Reaction

Hull fans may still be walking around with the feeling they have been mugged.

Yesterday, after having much the lions share of the opportunities, The Tigers left The KC Stadium empty handed, thanks to a last minute Carl Cort winner that gave Wolves their third succesive victory.

Indeed. had Stuart Green converted Hull's 40th minute penalty with the score at 1-0 to Wolves,and Hull in the ascendancy, it might have been a very different story.

Every Wolves fan can empathise. Last season's penalty debacle is still fresh enough in the memory to relate.

As are the emotions of walking away empty handed knowing your team deserved to at least take something from the game.

Now they can fully appreciate that feeling, having learned to turn the tables, and win playing ugly. Although that is being unkind to the finishing shown yesterday, which was far from it, being best summed up by Glenn Hoddle's favourite word, clinical.

Five shots on target and 3 goals speaks for itself.

The current sequence of wins has co-incided with an extended run for two young players who both look to have bright future's with Wolves, Mark Davies and Maurice Ross, who have both brought something fresh to the line up.

Mark Davies' ability to drive at teams, and as seen yesterday, to release strikers with precision gives the side an extra gear, beyond cruise, reverse and sideways.

And Maurice Ross' aggression and tenacity exemplifies the level of commitment required at Wolverhampton Wanderers for the rest of this season. Glenn Hoddle has said he sets the bar, winnning tackles he has no right to win, which is kind of spirit that at times has been missing from this Wolves side.

There is also the small matter of now having Jeremie Aliadiere to run onto those slide-rule passes, whose influence earning a penalty against Ipswich, and scoring yesterdays opener against Hull cannot be underestimated.

It is doubtful there is another player in the current Wanderers squad who would have achieved either.

It would have been interesting to note Tomasz Frankowski's reaction to Wanderers second goal, and the sight of a Wolves striker playing a return ball for another.


Wolves are now breathing down the neck of Preston North End, and the pressure has to be relentless. Ipswich travel to meet them next weekend, themselves still in the promotion hunt.

Maybe making Glenn Hoddle think, Queens Park Rangers away is sailing very close to being a must-win fixture.

Although not technically correct, something Glenn would be at pains to point out, it certainly presents Wolves with a golden opportunity to steal ground on those around them, and instill confidence in those that support them.
