Wolves Rob Three Points At Norwich

Norwich 0 Wolves 1

Wolves response to the Black Country defeat to Albion on Sunday was to go to Norwich and win, Michael Kightly scored the only goal of the game but how we won that game I`ll never know. The game was full of incidents which included a red card each for Gary Breen and Jackie McNamara, full of chances for Norwich and some strange decisions from the officials on show.

Norwich will be kicking themselves and wondering what the hell they had to do to score, the first half was all Norwich as they tore apart a near full strength Wolves squad. The Canaries game plan was simple get it out to the right side of Wolves defence and make life as hard as possible for rookie Mark Little, the young Wolves right back was getting some savage treatment from Darren Huckerby and this was the story of the first half for Norwich.

Matt Murray was up to his usual brilliance saving not once but four times in a devastating Norwich spell, Carl Robinson, Darren Huckerby, Peter Thorne and Adam Drury were all thwarted by Murray who kept Wolves in this game, Wolves only chance of the first half was from Michael Kightly who`s tame effort after a good Karl Henry through ball was saved easily.

For all the Norwich pressure it was Wolves that struck first in the 53rd minute, a great move from Wolves saw Andy Keogh race clear his cut back fell to Karl Henry who hit the base of the post, but Micheal Kightly followed up and made no mistake from close range.

Wolves should have had a penalty not long after and surely a red card would follow for the Norwich keeper, a backpass was blasted straight at Keogh he moved the ball past Marshall who hacked him down as he was about to score, everybody in the ground was adamant it was a spot kick except for the officials who played on, surely a Wolves second would have killed Norwich off but it wasn`t to be.

Norwich huffed and puffed and nearly got an equaliser, Darren Huckerby got a lucky break he raced clear only to be hacked down by Gary Breen, he knew what was coming and didn`t even wait for the ref to issue the red card, near the end Jackie McNamara got a second yellow after a clumsy tackle on Adam Drury.

The remaining 7 minutes were backs to the walls but Norwich could not get through the Wolves brick wall, we held on nicely meaning we stay 10th but are now only 3 points away from a playoff place.
