Personal Battles Won

Personal Battles Won

Before kick off, Mick McCarthy said that today was all about personal battles, and as well as being something of a magician, he has proved to be an equally good profit.

The scoreline may show a single goal separated the sides in the third black country derby this season, but the it was the way individuals matched their previous tormentors, and out fought them that won the day.

Matt Murrays duel with Diomansy Kamara ended in the dying moments with Kamara lying prostrate clutching his head in disbelief as Murray denied him for the umpteenth time.

Darren Potter and Seyi Olofinjana proved to be second half midfield generals, overwhelming their opposite numbers with industry, heart and desire.

And Jay Bothroyd,for so long in a Wolves wilderness and going head to head with his former teammate Dean Kiely, left the field victorious and a black country hero.

Wolves now have momentum behind them, and a consistency not seen from a Molineux side since the early days of manager Dave Jones.

Have Wolves finally found the warriors who can turn the tide and win the war?
