Match Thread V Norwich City (A, 21/01/17)


By Badge32
January 21 2017

For the second week running Paul Lambert faces a former club he has managed. After securing a 1-0 win over the Villa last week he will now look for the double with a win at Carrow Road.

Match Facts

Former Norwich boss Lambert has made three returns to Carrow Road since leaving for Aston Villa in June 2012 - all ending in victory. Villa won there all three times under Lambert, Weimann scoring twice in the first of them, a 4-1 League Cup victory in December 2012.

The Canaries have won their last three league games against Wolves at Carrow Road, notching nine goals in the process.

Wolves' only win in their last eight league games against Norwich came on the opening day of the 2014-15 season, when Dave Edwards netted the solitary goal.

Norwich's defeat at bottom-of-the-table Rotherham last weekend was their ninth in 14 Championship matches.

Wolves are looking to achieve three consecutive away league clean sheets for the first time since January 2015.

Only Brighton, Leeds and Sheffield Wednesday have won more home Championship games (9) than the Canaries this season.

Wolves have never lost a game against Norwich during the month of January (W5, D3)

Head To Head

Games won: 29
Games drawn: 15
Games lost: 12

An interesting match in my view this afternoon. Norwich desperately in need of a result after losing at Rotherham and Southampton, whilst Wolves want to continue keeping a clean sheet and climbing the league.

Some surprise being expressed at Coady being droppped for today's match after some good performances at right back. I just wonder if it's Lambert's attempt to encourage youngsters and keep Iorfa on board.

Howson hits the bar then Naismith puts Norwich 1 - 0 up

The very day I stick money on Wolves, this happens with the first shot FFS. I thought good odds at 14/5 for the win. Probably get a bit better odds now!

Cav trying to be clever with the ball in his own penalty area rather than clearing it - nearly got us into trouble.

Cavaleiro having a particularly poor match, giving the ball away, and making poor decisions.
Can't see the reason for dropping Coady so far

Get coady back on for Iorfa. Need a better second half.

Weimann (wearing No 63!!) replacing Cavaleiro at beginning of second half, which sounds good sense.

Iorfa gives a free kick away right on the edge of penalty area, which probably should have been a penalty!!

Living dangerously by the sound v a team who can't buy a win. Typical Wolves!

Dicko replaces Dadi, so Iorfa will complete the match. Lambert clearly trying to bring a good performance out of him by showing confidence in him

Penalty to Norwich for a foul by Ikeme on Houlihan. Ikeme red carded after he pushed Hoolihgan. Doherty having to go in goal. Replay shows houlihan fell over Ikeme's leg for penalty, so Ikeme lost his rag!!

Burgoyne is the substitute goalkeeper, but PL had used all his subs when Ikeme was sent off

General feeling is that Wolves penalty was a touch lucky, but the decision was Norwich's was awful - Houlihan was falling over before Ikeme got near him.

Ikeme out for anfield trip, fair to say our chances of beating the dippers have got much less now

Norwich score again, struck from the edge of the box by Howson and deflected in by Batth. No chance for The Doc

No doubt the ref wanted to balance things up for giving a lucky penalty to us. Plonker.

Game finishes. Norwich 3 Wolves 1. A generally poor performance by Wolves made worse by bad decisions from the ref and Carl Ikeme.

Burger - the mini bubblegum bubble has burst.

Now that we see Liverpool have been playing so poorly over the last few weeks, clearly it is time for Wolves to apply their soothing hands on opposition poor runs next weekend - just like at Carrow Road. Typical Wolves.

The only positive thing I have to say is that at least we leave Norwich with Moxey firmly left behind.
