Good high energy being shown by Wolves and have had the better of the first half. If they can continue this for the full 90 then a surprise result could be well earned. Cmon!!

Well at least we appear to have played well, especially in the first half, which after the last two games is a plus.
Record crowd of 30193.

Good first half performance, poor enough in the second half.
Now lets concentrate on the League, i couldnt bare it if we were to go back down to League 1 !.

Fair performance, we gave them plenty to think about in the first half, the second was always going to be tougher when they adjusted.
We created a good few half chances and the lack of conversions just goes to highlight our need for a decent striker.
