Athletics Arena, Sportscity – Att: 475
City: Miller 59
A battling second half display saw Wolves reserves leave Manchester tonight with a valuable point in the bag.
It was Wolves that drew first blood after 4 minutes when Daniel Jones whipped in a free kick from the right hand touchline and his left footed shot went straight over de Vlieger's head and into the top corner.
City fought hard to get back into the game and after 16 minutes the impressive Lee Croft threatened the Wolves back 4 with a fine run and cross, but the Wolves defence cleared the danger.
With City making the most of their widemen, Ishmael Miller threatened from the left, but again, his final ball failed to find a blue shirt.
After half an hour Shalem Logan released Danny Sturridge, but his snap shot was well saved by Oakes
Minutes later Oakes was called into action, Miller once again testing the keeper but Oakes saved comfortably.
City were by now dominant, and Sturridge was unlucky not to score on 36 minutes, hitting the bar, but at the half way mark it was City 0, Wolves 1
City started the second half where they left off and got their just deserts when Lee Croft's great ball in from the right was finished in fine style by Kiki Musampa. His bullet header flew past Oakes into the net. 1-1
Shortly after Milled pulled another good save out of Oakes before Bradley Wright Phillips saw his low shot go just wide.
There was no respite for Wolves pinned into their own half and with 15 minutes to go Shaleum Logan nearly bagged the points when his fine effort was saved once again by Oakes.
But it just wasnt meant to be City's night, and the game ended all square, 1-1
