A Case Of More Points Dropped

A Case Of More Points Dropped

Wolves 2 Plymouth 2

Another home game goes by and yet more points are squandered, and it`s a tired cliché but the home form is really costing us a Play-off place , today it was Plymouth`s turn to play at the Golden Palace and another team to walk away from Molineux with something. The game however was a very entertaining one and both teams played good football and got bums off seats, which is a first at Molineux for a long time.

Mick McCarthy changed formation to accommodate .playing Andy Keogh and Stephen Ward together, Seyi Olofinjana made way for the change and also a shock recall for Daniel Jones in place of the disappointing Michael McIndoe , Rob Edwards and Jamie Clapham came in for the suspended Gary Breen and Jackie McNamara.

The opening exchanges by both teams were exciting but defences were on top early on, but as the half wore on Plymouth started to play some quick decisive football and took the lead in the 27th minute, again Mark Little was found wanting as Scott Sinclair nipped past him and with the defence backing off he fired home under Matt Murray to give Plymouth a deserved lead.

The Plymouth supporters celebrations were silenced soon after and the plaudits go to new boy Andy Keogh, he collected a ball on the halfway line skipped past three defenders and raced clear one on one, and when you thought he would simply place it around the keeper he cleverly squared it to Stephen Ward who fired it into an empy net for the equaliser.

But would you Adam and Eve it a few minutes later Plymouth go up the other end and take the lead again, but this goal will incense a lot of home supporters, a great ball into the box was met with a powerful drive by Krisztian Timar whose effort was adjudged to have crossed the line after a brave attempt by Jamie Clapham to chest of the line , but at half time while watching a TV replay Clapham did clear it off the line brilliantly and we felt very aggrieved and angry that it was given.

Mick McCarthy decided to shuffle the pack around in the 2nd half , he brought off Mark Little for Michael McIndoe and Daniel Jones for Seyi Olofinjana, to be fair before the changes Wolves were getting into their stride and starting to tear into Plymouth , Stephen Ward and Andy Keogh were a threat all afternoon and both could and should have got Wolves back into the game but both strikers had a rock called Luke McCormick infront of them , the Plymouth shot stopper saved well at the feet of both Keogh and Ward to keep Plymouth infront.

Wolves after the changes moved up a level and you could just sense an equaliser just around the corner and it duly came, a needless freekick was given away by Rory Fallon and the quick thinking Karl Henry played a ball into Micheal Kightly in the area, and with the Plymouth keeper and defence all at sea Kightly lifted the ball into the area straight to Olofinjana who headed home a deserved leveller for Wolves.

The game had been a very entertaining one for both sets of supporters and with Plymouth edging the first half and Wolves domination and failure to capitalise on their chances a draw was the fairest result, Plymouth and Wolves can stand up and congratulate themselves on contributing to a thoroughly attack minded game. I`m sure both teams have a decent outlook for next seasons campaign as I feel both will miss out on a Play-off place this season.

Plymouth are not the soft touch they once were and will be disapointed with a draw away at Wolves.
