Wolves v Sheff Wed. The History

Wolves v Sheff Wed have a long history, the first time these 2 teams met was way back in 1889 this came in the 3rd round of the FA Cup. Wolves played at home and ran out 3-0 winners thanks to brace from Wykes and a single strike from Fletcher.
Over the following years, these 2 teams have met over 100 times in all competitions.

The first ever league meeting came at home on the 11th March 1893, Wolves ran out 2-0 winners with goals from Butcher and Wood. A month later and Wolves completed a double with a 1-0 win. The following season and it was another double for Wolves. 3-1 at home and 4-1 away. In October 1894 Wolves made it 6 straight wins with a 2-0 home win. A month later and Sheff Wed finally secured their first win with a 3-1 win. This result sparked an amazing run for Wolves. The next 20 league games in Sheffield, Wolves failed to win any. 16 defeats and 4 draws between 1894 and 1935, 11 of the defeats were in a row. At home though it was a different story, over the 20 games played at home Wolves won 12 and lost just 3.

Back in 1906 Wolves reached the FA Cup Final but were defeated 3-1 by the Owls. Another miserable stat follows as Wolves played 6 Cup games in Sheffield after this and won none of them.

April 1921 saw Wolves suffer their heaviest defeat away at Sheffield Wednesday, a 5-0 thumping. 42 years later and this score was repeated.
In 1933 Wolves recorded their biggest win over Sheffield Wednesday, a resounding 6-2 triumph. Goals from Phillips (2) Beattie, Baraclough, Hartill and Lowton secured the points for Wolves.

Wolves finally broke the 20 game winless streak in 1937, thanks to a 3-1 win with goals from Galley (2) and Clayton and then a 3-2 win on the next league visit, Slater, Smith and Swinbourne the scorers. Normal service on the travels was soon restored as the next 11 games saw Wolves return home winless, 6 times coming home nothing. It was in 1968 that this run was ended with goals from Dougan and Knowles giving Wolves a 2-0 win. This result sparked a change in fortune for Wolves. The next 8 games at Hillsborough saw Wolves undefeated these games were spread over 38 year period. In February 2003 WOlves recorded their biggest win at Hillsborough with a 4-0 win. Adam Proudlock hit 2 goals and Kenny Miller and Dean Sturridge added the others.
Christmas 2005 and it was another win, Darren Anderton and Kenny Miller bagging the goals in a 2-0 away win.
The last visit to Hillsborough came just last season in March. Michael McIndoe scored his first goal for the club and Andy Keogh hit a last minute goal to level the game at 2-2.
Overall Wolves record away to Sheff Wed is poor but recent history sits in Wolves favour.

I wish I knew Paddy. Walking behind him on Saturday as he strolled to the game, I would have given anything to be next to him. He went in the South Bank, I have moved my ticket from the Billy Wright for the Blackpool game. In S3 I think. Hope he is near me
