Vital Wolves: Draw with Villa - The Verdict
Sylvan Ebanks-Blake thumped home his first Premier League goal from the penalty spot with seven minutes remaining to take a share of the points against Aston Villa.
Gabriel Agbonlahor had opened the scoring just 5 minutes before the spot kick was given in what proved to be a tight game.
krfeskivilla who ventured over from Vital Aston Villa after the game said: A fair result, but poor game. Wolves edged first half and should have had a penalty. Villa controlled the second half without playing well, and after taken lead should have won as Wolves had virtually no goal threat in the second 45. Stupid and unnecessary challenge by Sidwell gifted Wolves the penalty, but I think their first half performance merited a point. Seriously, good luck for the rest of the season.
Which was agreed with by Vital Wolves Moderator OLDGOLD, who added: A pretty fair assessment I think.
darrylkenyon also agreed, but also thought that Wolves will go on to do better: A fair comment I would say but I do think now that Kites and Blake are back some of these draws will turn in to wins. Were fighting hard or as Mick would say the lads are putting a shift in.
While Lost_Wolf thought that Villa were lucky to get away with a point: If Doyle had gone down rather than being honest and staying on his feet, I think we would have had that first penalty shout and would have then taken all the points.
So did Mick McCarthy agree with Lost_Wolf? He certainly did explaining to the BBC: 'We deserved something out of it, that's for sure. The first penalty should one was an absolute stonewaller on Doyle.
'Surely being honest shouldn't prejudice you from getting a penalty. It's a penalty, he has to give the decision. Obviously he didn't think it was or he would have given it.
'Doyle's done everything right, you've got to rely on the officials to give the decision.
