Kights on target

Following his appearance against Manchester United reserves, Michael Kightly took another step down the comeback trail against Blackburn Rovers reserves last night.

Kights played an hour and got on the scoreboard giving Wolves the lead after 34 minutes.

Blackburn were back level just before Kights was substituted

'Kights had another 60 minutes as planned on the next stage of his comeback,' Development Coach Steve Weaver told Wolves Official Website.

He continued: 'he looked bright and lively and scored a good goal.

'I think this is where he is at the moment in terms of just building up his game time.

'It's not so much about what he does out there but the reaction and how he feels the next morning.

'But it was all very positive again and we'll just see how he reacts and take it from there.'

After Kights came off the pitch the game really heated up!

Referee Bristow sent off Matt Doherty for pulling back Nikola Kalinic and Blackburn took advantage of having the extra man, scoring the winner with only three minutes remaining.

The drama however didn't end there, as the game finished 10-a-side following Darryl Goulon's sending off.

Goulon firstly kicked Nathan Rooney in the chest to earn the red card and then once he was given his marching orders he followed that up with a punch!

If the referee sent off Doherty for pulling back Kalinic, why didn't Halsey do the same when Hutton held Milijas on Saturday? Presumably, because Kalinic was actually standing on the goal-line with the ball at his feet and no defender in sight (except for Doherty behind him, of course).

Looking good,fingers crossed.

To make a serious point about the article (as if Halsey's two poor decisions on Sunday isn't a serious issue) I am really pleased to see Kites making such good progress. He will definitely be back to help out before the end of the season.

Brilliant :) standing on the goal line with the ball at his feet. Classic. For the record my match report has disapeared and seems a bit silly, and annoying to write another one considering it is already Tuesday. Note to oneself- leave computer on for a bit- return, complete. Anyway, two days on and the more I think about the decisions against us the worse it gets. It was such a great game its a shame we are still going to have to look back at it and remember it for those disgusting decisions. There is an article on the Express & Spoon that starts by calling for 'us' as is everyone in the world it would appear, to lay off refs, then it spends 90% of its time replaying the moments and underlining exactly how and where the mistakes were made. There is a lot of anger towards the ref, and I will actually give one writer credit for saying, in such manner, that whilst Halsey surely was not deliberately cheating, he just made it look like he was- and I could not put it better myself. I would love to know what the players were saying to him to change his mind like that because I felt pretty certain he knew what his decision was, and would have shown the red card if he did not have the terrible task of having to 'think' about it. There was a period when many of us complained the game was being ruined after FIFA introduced its updated rules, protecting players, and goalkeepers in particular but the days of such nonesense decisions I thought had passed their worst, and that we were beginning to see common sense being employed. I have lost track of how many times we have seen goals given, then turned and said 'a couple of years ago that was an automatic free kick' so it is even more difficult to stomach now. I do still try to concentrate on the future- as I posted after the game the result stands and it is up to us to now make sure we right a wrong, maintain standards and ensure we are here next season to have another two goes at Tottenham. One game does not make or break a season- let's just hope Halsey is not chosen to officiate again come May 22nd. Apparently we have the best home record outside of the top 7 sides, but our away form is clearly the worst. The more I look at it, I am convincing myself we have to aim for 42 points just to be sure. With Albion, Blues, Fulham, Everton and Blackburn to come, I don't see us losing another home game this season. What we need to find from somewhere is four wins and a draw somewhere but just like last time Mick seems to be getting the second half of the season right, and I maintain the belief we will stay up. The more we see and hear of Kightly the better- the same can be said for Adlene who could come in with a few surprises up his sleeve over the last 3 or 4 games. It's been a roller coaster but the worst, and best is yet to come!

How is Adlene progressing? We've had no word of his progress for ages. He must be nearing a return to training. After all, Zamora is playing again. We really missed him (Adlene, that is, not Bobby) in the pre-O'Hara days. Shame about Edwards. Just when he had made the break-through, he had the break-down. He and O'Hara looked good in tandem against Blackpool. Now we have to wait a couple of weeks before the next game: it's an emotional time (I have pinched your copyrighted adjective, given that you have opted for a funfair metaphor).
Southbank60
Things are looking up on the injury front. Kites might be included in the AV squad, while Adlene has resumed training (nice to see that my query brought an instant response) and Mancienne will return before too long. Zubes has gone back to France for an injection in his back. Perhaps Edwards should go with him. If it works he might give the phone number of the specialist.
