Post Match Round-Up

Post Match Round-Up

The dust has now settled on Wolves dramatic last minute win against Hull at the weekend.

Five goals, Three of them from 3 different Wolves strikers,a pair of brothers matched together for the first time in their career and a bizarre unrepeatable own goal ensured that there was certainly plenty for people to talk about.

Jeremie Aliadiere got off to the best possible start on his full debut for Wanderers, bagging Wolves first goal on 28 minutes.

He may not have been playing regular football of late, but that hasn't affected his clinical finidhing, as Hull City found out to their cost.

'We pressed them really high and they made a mistake which gave Mark Davies the chance to put me through, said Aliadiere.

'I had the two defenders around me who I thought were going to tackle me but they didn't. I like those chances when I can drive the ball across so it was my type of goal.' he added.


Manager Glenn Hoddle had called for added focus prior to the game, and that's exactly what he got. And after his sides dramatic victory, he now believes that Wolves luck may be on the change.

'Our fortunes are starting to turn a little bit and it's a lovely time for this to happen. It's the first time we have won three matches on the bounce this season and it has given us some buoyancy.

'We will keep believing in ourselves and there will be a few teams looking over their shoulders.'

One man whose confidence is sure to be riding high after the weekend is Carl Cort. It was his superbly taken last minute volley that settled the outcome with a minute to go.

'It was a fantastic ball from Rohan but it was strange because from the moment it left his foot to the moment I made contact, I had visions of my chance at Sheffield United when I put it over the bar.' Carl said after the game, adding

'I told myself to keep the ball down this time and thankfully it went in. It was a fantastic feeling when I saw it had hit the net and my emotions were running wild because I was so delighted, both for me personally and the team.'

Three wins in a row should be enough to instill a little belief in the Molineux faithful, but it is next Saturday's visit to QPR that offers the real test of their promotion credentials.

Should Wolves manage to make it four in a row, there is thereal threat that fans could actually start to believe ascent to the top flight is actually possible.
















'It's been a long time since my last goal and it's been really hard for me with all the injuries and time spent on the bench.


'Now I'm playing again and I've scored but even then the most important thing was that we won. It's the third game in a row we've won so the team is really confident - hopefully we can keep it going and get to the play-offs as well.'
