Leicester City 1 - Wolves 4

The Walkers Stadium

Out Foxed

Wolverhampton Wanderers booked their place in the play offs with a convicing win at The Walkers Stadium, once again coming from behind and recording their biggest win of the season, 4-1.

Oh, and they scored a penalty

Wolves nerves were tested early on when Leicester went ahead in only the third minute when Johansson broke down the left and his cross was volleyed home by Iain Hume to send the Foxes ahead.

But as sure as Gary Linekers ears are large, Wolves once more showed their grit, rolled their sleeves up, and stuck to their game plan.

'Just before they went out I suddenly felt I had to say something. Taff had been going on about how a match is played over 90 minutes and I added that if something goes against us we have to just keep on going and not panic.' Mick McCarthy said after the match, and that's just what they did.

Leicester squandered two guilt edged chances to ut the game beyond Wanderers, and after the second they needed no further warning that it was time to kick up a gear.

First Michael Kightly, then Michael Mcindoe threatened the Leicester goal before Seyi Olofinjana edged ever closer to his benchmark of ten goals on 25 minutes, forcing the ball home following Jody Craddock's header was cleared off the line.

Eight minutes later that man Kightly popped once again, when needed most to edge Wolves ahead.

Logan managed to parry his cheeky lob into the air, but it was Kightly who showed the greater hunger in the scramble to get to the ball, forcing it home from close range.

In the second 45 Leicester offered sligtly less oppostion to Wolves irresistable force as they sought to secure their place in the play offs.

First Seyi Olofinjana, then Andy Keogh rattled the woodwork, before Leicester's tactic of pressing high backfired against them.

Beating the Foxes shaky offside trap, Keogh and Jay Bothroyd sprinted clear and when Keogh squared the ball for Bothroyd in the six yard box, the unfortunate McAuley prodded the ball into his own net.

Leicetsres misery was compounded when Patrick Kisnorbo was dismissed for a second bookeable offence, and it fell to the outstanding Keogh to add the coupe de grace, calmly converting a penalty for Wolves fourth after substitute Stephen Ward, on for Jay Bothroyd had been brought down by Johansson.

Star Player

Andy Keogh.

Tireless chasing Wolves promotion dream, and his calmly taken penalt was just desserts for his efforts
