A decent result (and another correct prediction by me, I must modestly point out). A somewhat below par Villa side were matched by a solid if unspectacular Wolves.
The game started with a bang, with Villa having a decent chance and Doyle being incorrectly denied a penalty in the first three minutes, but rapidly fizzled out. Wolves were again solid in defence, with Zubar making another good impression following on from last week’s debut. A mention for Craddock, Wolves’ only survivor from the last Premier League squad, who is looking infinitely better this time around.
It would have been good to see a little more creativity going forward, and several more shots. However, Wolves showed great character to get a goal back after going one down with less than 10 minutes left.
And finally, great to see: 1) Ebanks-Blake with his first goal, and 2) Wolves actually be given a penalty.
