Wolves hope to follow up their away win at Wembley with another three points at home to Crystal Palace this evening

Currently sitting six places above Palace in the Premiership with ten more points Wolves will be hoping to at least repeat the 1 - 0 victory they secured at Palace earlier in the season. Diogo Jota and Adama Traore are injury concerns for Wolves whilst Christian Benteke is still on the bench for Palace.

Look at the bench. Any one of them we would have been ecstatic to have a few years back. Traore, Neves, Bonatini.
Let's see who can do it for us tonight.

Wolves struggling to get a foothold in the game ao far

Slow and giving them way too much respect

Cheshire wolf
02/01/2019 19:55
Unusually poor forward pass by CC - difficult to get going yet!

02/01/2019 19:57
Jimenez tried from about a mile out

Cheshire wolf
02/01/2019 19:57
First shot comes from Raul, but always rising

Cheshire wolf

Scrappy so far & Wolves finding it hard to keep possession

C,mon boys. Another three points please.

chicagowolf
02/01/2019 20:05
Sloppy from Boly nearly costs us

Cheshire wolf
02/01/2019 20:07
Lots of possession by Wolves but no end result. Careless mistake by Boly gives Palace a chance which Rui tips over. Corner comes to nothing. We're playing like the away team so far

Cheshire wolf
02/01/2019 20:09
Poor decision by ref to show Boly a yellow card for an innocuous foul on Townsend

chicagowolf
02/01/2019 20:14
We are pushing forward more and waking up the crowd

Cheshire wolf
02/01/2019 20:16
Palace are defending well and we are finding it hard to penetrate. Jin king run by Townsend ends up with a shot over the bar.

30 mins. Time for a Wolves goal but Boly loses it again!!

Cheshire wolf
02/01/2019 20:20
Zaha loses the ball and theatrically falls over. The crowd are amused - and tell him!!

02/01/2019 20:21
Wolves have just two first half Molineux goals this season. No surprise if this is typical

Cheshire wolf
02/01/2019 20:22
Cavaleiro earns a corner. Boly misdirected it, then Doc heads a clear chance over the bar

chicagowolf
02/01/2019 20:23
Boly misses header from our first corner. Not his day. Yet

After the Lord Mayors show?

Plenty of time yet though Palace are no mugs.

C’mon Wolves!

Glad to get in at halftime 0-0. Maybe MGW and Traore can liven it up a bit

Cheshire wolf
02/01/2019 20:35
Half time comes as a relief that Palce are not in the lead! Wolves are slow and lacking ideas against a well organised defence. Saiss has just had a yellow for pulling Zaha back.
Far too many passes back and sideways by Wolves and all our threat has come outside the box, whereas Palace have looked threatening in possession, and have amassed 7 corners to our two.
Moutinho isn't as fluid or quick with the passes from midfield as Neves, and Saiss doesn't have his accuracy. Jimenez is getting no service at all up front.
All to pay for then!!
Wolves 0 Palace 0

Moutihno sparked it alive against Spurs with that fabulous corner that Willy put away. But a few minutes later the commentator described him as tired so I wonder when he will come off

Ivybridge Wolf
02/01/2019 20:49
No shots on target in that half. Are we Spurs in disguise?!

I felt Nuno would change things up for this match, however I would have liked to have seen Neves plus Dendonker i.e. same as saturday, in midfield. Saiss and Moutinho doesn’t represent the most attacking duo.

I’m sure Nuno will ring the changes in the second half, I’d like to hear we are taking the games to ‘um!

UTW!

Fine break by Raul but his cross to Costa just cut out. Short corner taken and wasted once again

Cheshire wolf
02/01/2019 20:53
Mix up in Palace goal area nearly lets Doc in. We are playing a bit more positively so far this half

Now Ryan Bennett gets a yellow for flattening Zaha off the ball

Cheshire wolf
02/01/2019 21:03
Pass back from Doc goes to Jonny on his right foot and he still shoots - way over the bar!!

Cheshire wolf
02/01/2019 21:04
Roger East too cowardly to book McArthur for a blatant dive in our box!!

Cheshire wolf
02/01/2019 21:09
MGW replaces Costa. Cavaleiro can count himself lucky to still be on the pitch!!

Cheshire wolf
02/01/2019 21:15
Good attacking period for Palace & Wolves scramble it clear. Neves being prepared to replace Saiss, although Joao hasn't been on top form tonight

Cheshire wolf
02/01/2019 21:19
Roger East has been very poor tonight

Cheshire wolf
02/01/2019 21:20
Raul skies the ball over the bar. Still no shots on target for Wolves

Cheshire wolf
02/01/2019 21:27
Anew scores the opening goal from an offside position, but they have looked the more likely team to score for some time.

Cavaleiro replaced by Traore

Wolves 0 Palace 1

Cheshire wolf
02/01/2019 21:31
Wolves haven't a clue tonight. - sad to say.

Connor Wickham replaces Ayew

Two minutes plus added time to play

See if we can use the 4 mins stoppage

0-2 final. Tired and listless. Glad that is done

Zaha brought down by Bennet and immediate penalty given

Milojovic scores
Wolves 0 Palace 2

All over. A dreadful game - equalling our performance against H'field. Little idea in midfield or up front. Defence played quite well in the face of a skilful Palace attack. Substitutions brought about little change, except for Neves having our only shot on target of the game.
Referee was poor and only booked our players for some reason.
We deserved nothing from the game and we got what we deserved!! Oh well, only Liverpool and Man City to face in our next two matches!!

Wolves 0 Palace 2

"Momma said there'd be days like this" - perhaps we save it for the bigger clubs? - oh well as Wolves supporters we are used to a rollercoaster ride!

So frustrating. Inconsistency appears now to be part and parcel of our season. Superb victories and inexplicable drab defeats.Sad to hear that was on a par with the Huddersfield performance, still not to worry, Liverpool and Manchester City next, so we’ll be alright!

I have no idea how to solve this one at present, hopefully Nuno is scratching his head furiously to address ASAP!

UTW!

Why do we always do this? No matter who the manager is or who the players are, when faced with a game (when we should be full of confidence) to consolidate our position, we bottle it.

Cheshire wolf
02/01/2019 23:08
It has to be said that Pa;ace have played better away from home this season, and they presented quite a threat upfront throughout the game. This was never going to be an easy three points for us, but we should have done better.
Personally I fail to understand the notion of playing Moutinho and Saiss in midfield and leaving Neves out for the second time in three matches - his passing was sadly missed tonight.

Lupinehowler

Really disappointing, playing at home should give us an advantage and yet despite full crowd support, no injuries to speak of and playing against one of the weaker teams in the league we underperform once again. So frustrating to see such a lack of flair and invention from players who surely could bring some invention to their play. I begin to wonder if some players are overly shackled by the “system” of play we seem to stick to so rigidly.

One piece of good news; neither Nuno nor Neves would seem to be off to Old Trafford anytime soon.
However this was a bit drab, and mirrored Cardiff and, even worse, Huddersfield. Only Man U and Liverpool seem to have come through the Christmas time unscathed. All of the managers complain about too many games, so maybe they have a point? Anyway, onward and, hopefully, upward.
