Match Thread V Reading (A, 04/03/2017)

By Badge32
March 4 2017

Sorry no image today as it won't upload. Wolves face a tough game today against Reading who sit in the play-off places. Wolves today could drop into the bottom three with a loss and results going against them. Things are looking bad when at the start of the season everyone was dreaming of a title challenge under the new dawn of fosun. It's time the lads started to turn things around and with a little hope, Dicko will go on a scoring run following his goal last week.

Match Facts

Wolves have lost their last four league games, as well as losing in the FA Cup fifth round to Chelsea.

They have not suffered five league defeats in a row since November/December 2014, under Kenny Jackett.

They last lost six matches on the trot in an ultimately seven-match losing run in March/April 2012, when Terry Connor was manager, following the sacking of Mick McCarthy.

Reading are winless in their last three league meetings with Wolves, having failed to score in all three games.

Reading have won eight of their last 10 home Championship games.

Only Fulham (83%) have a better passing accuracy than Reading in the Championship this season (81%).

Wolves have not won an away game at the Madejski Stadium since winning 2-1 in April 2005 (3D,1L). Leon Clarke and Rohan Ricketts scored as Wolves came back from a early goal down.

Head To Head

Games won: 18
Games drawn: 7
Games lost: 16

Afternoon All

It seems like Lambert has lost patience with our defence and gone all out for improvement. I'm pleased to see Williamson replace Batth as I think he has been a weak link. Hause and Iorfa will have a chance to prove themselves. Why he prefers Saville to Doherty at Left Back I don't understand particularly as the Doc has been more or less an ever present for the past two seasons. Marshall on the right wing is a new one on me too. but we'll have to see. We can only hope that Dicko has found his scoring boots now & Costa will turn it on against top 6 opposition

Reading dominating, Wolves can't string 2 passes togather. Nothing to worry either keeper yet.

19th minute... 1st corner of the game goes to Wolves.

Rubbish, Reading break up to other end, Iorfa clears.


Reading well in charge after 20 mins 0-0. No shots on target yet.

Not been an exciting game has it. Still the defence look a bit more solid. Hopefully we will put a few more passes together and create a few chances in the second half.

Well, the last 6 matches reads:
W0 D0 L6

I'm speachless. After the match v Newcastle I uttered the jonahesque words that I didn't think we'd go down. I firmly believed it but wouldn't so saft as to say that we were too good to go down.

We lost today - in the context of the season, today won't be the result that caused our demise, though Blackburn winning and a point from Bristol City (should have been 3) has piled on the pressure at the wrong moment.

Football is about scoring. We have consistently proved we cor hit a barn door.

Troubling and worrying and I can't see where the next goal is coming from. Rotherham at home next week. That could get nasty.

Just been listening top some of the post match autopsy on Wolves Player, and Thommo says he can't understand why PL doesn't play two up top. He's played Bodvarsson there on his own, he's now playing Dicko there on his own. Surely he need to play 4-4-2!!

I wonder whether it's because he wants to keep Edwards in the team? I also struggle with his notion of dropping Doherty for Saville.

Doherty was our best player by far against Brum in fack for a full back he was the best we had going forward But this is no idea Lambert.

Just seen the highlights, I don't think the ball crossed the line from the Saiss header as stated by the E&s. However the red card was a joke as the reading player was already on his way down before hitting Williams.
