'If It's Football, It's Vital'

The good, the bad and the ugly

Wolves recorded their sixth league win of the season at the weekend, but not without a cost.

Red cards for hat trick hero Chris Iwelumo and in form shotstopper Wayne Hennessey leave Wolves manager Mick McCarthy with a selection headache he'd rather not have.

There is hope for Iwelumo, with an appeal lodged to get his card rescinded, but it looks likely that the club will accept Hennessey's dismissal leaving him to sit out Wolves next fixture with Bristol City.

Mick McCarthy has cited 'the letter of the law' as applying in Hennessey's case.

Which may well be true. But if so, why was Wayne the only keeper sent off in the Championship at the weekend for denying a goalscoring opportunity?

He certainly wasn't the only one guilty of bringing a player down in the manner in which he did.

The suspension of the young Welshman should mean Carl Ikeme will get an unexpected run out at the weekend at a crucial point in the season.

Having opened a gap from the following pack, no matter how small, Wolves need to consolodate and put in another strong home performance.

Hopefully, starting from the back.

Most teams might be left to worry having lost a 'keeper of Hennessey's ability for a key match, but if Ikeme plays to the level he's capable of, it may be Hennessey left to worry that he's lost his starting place.
