Ruben Neves celebrating

By Wolves
February 26 2019

Wolves travel for their second consecutive away game tonight to the John Smiths Stadium, Huddersfield. They will be looking to reverse the 2 - 0 defeat they suffered at the hands of the Terriers in November at Molineux

Boss Nuno Espirito Santo is expecting a tough match this evening against a team struggling to stay in the Premier League, and under new management since the teams last met. Whilst Huddersfield have some injuries and a suspension affecting their selection options, Nuno's squad are all fit and available for the game, particularly Joao Moutinho who required stitches in his mouth after being elbowed by Jefferson Lerma in Saturday's game. wolves achieved their presumed target of 40 points at Bournemouth and will now be hoping to consolidate their attempt to achieve European football in their first season in the top division. A goal from midfield hero Ruben Neves would be very welcome for our many travelling fans.

An unchanged team from Saturday's match will start tonight.

Line-up: Patricio, Bennett, Coady, Boly, Doherty, Dendoncker, Neves, Jonny, Moutinho, Jota, Jimenez

Substitutes: Ruddy, Vinagre, Saiss, Gibbs-White, Costa, Cavaleiro, Traore

Our referee tonight is David Coote. He is in his first season in the Premier League, and refereed our home game with West Ham. In my view he was similar to Simon Hooper in Cardiff's game with Watford last Friday who is also a newbie. Neither of them showed the courage needed to give a penalty, presumably for fear of criticism.
Let's hope he does better tonight.

Cheshire wolf
26/02/2019 19:45
Jan Siewert has made eight changes to his team tonight, with his twenty year old right back making his debut. Nothing lost in trying presumably!

Meanwhile a return to his old club for s captain Connor Coady

Enthusiastic start by Terriers but Wolves looking well organised

Cheshire wolf
26/02/2019 19:51
First corner of the game goes to Terriers & well dealt with by Rui

Ivybridge Wolf
26/02/2019 19:53
Good corner by, in my view Huddersfields best player, Pritchard, well punched out by Rui. Followed by a shot from Billing, huge deflection - really could have gone anywhere, luckily to a corner.

Rui elects to punch rather than catch. Banks and Shilts would have caught it!

Philip Billing was a thorn in our side at the Mol and he is already in the thick of things. Willy Boly just made a great tackle on him, but now down clutching his left knee - possibly after a bad landing from a header

Ivybridge Wolf
26/02/2019 19:55
Nasty landing from a routine challenge from Boly - injured - looks like a knee but thumbs up!! Think he’ll be okay for now - hope so, I have him to score!

Happily he is Ok to continue

Ivybridge Wolf
26/02/2019 20:01
Terriers are the brighter in terms of pressing but we are looking solid, so far, at the back. Ball not quite sticking up front ...... yet

Good work by Jonny to earn Wolves first corner but comes to nothing

Ivybridge Wolf
26/02/2019 20:03
1st Wolves corner, decent wing play from Jonny. 17th minute. Comes to nothing.

Huddersfield fairly composed ATM



https://i.pinimg.com/236x/74/97/b1/7497b1d1e231e8f83fc02db12bc473da--uk-football-sports-logos.jpg

26/02/2019 20:09
The 100th odd long Bennett throw of the season. No goal!! Lol

Great chance for Doc set up by Jota but goes wide

Ivybridge Wolf
26/02/2019 20:12
We ay on it as yet. Nothing like the hideous reverse effort at Molineux, but just not going!

With that, great work from Jota and a chance to Doc who snatched at a very good chance - wide. Best Wolves move of the match, at least



https://i.pinimg.com/236x/74/97/b1/7497b1d1e231e8f83fc02db12bc473da--uk-football-sports-logos.jpg

First yellow card to Billing for cynical foul on Jota

Ivybridge Wolf
26/02/2019 20:16
Yellow to Billing. Absolutely took out Jota. Think Billing was a bit peed off they didn’t get a free kick.

Another mini raid down the left with Jonny. All our good stuff is down the left so far



https://i.pinimg.com/236x/74/97/b1/7497b1d1e231e8f83fc02db12bc473da--uk-football-sports-logos.jpg

Good build up by Terriers but poor final shot. They certainly are not lying down tonight

Ivybridge Wolf
26/02/2019 20:26
Pritchard looks their best player to me. Has troubled us on a few occasions.

Long period of Wolves possession end up in a dangerous free kick. Moutinho takes ...... Jiminez just wide - corner!!



https://i.pinimg.com/236x/74/97/b1/7497b1d1e231e8f83fc02db12bc473da--uk-football-sports-logos.jpg

Cheshire wolf
26/02/2019 20:28
Good long build up by Wolves leads to free kick just outside the are. Raul header deflected for a corner.
Now another corner. Terriers fans feel ref is biased but he is doing well so far!!

Ivybridge Wolf
26/02/2019 20:29
Another two Wolves corners - nothing! Break away, Bennett yellow.

Stank I can runs in front of Bennett who can't avoid colliding with him. Yellow card to Bennett

Cheshire wolf

Three added minutes

Ivybridge Wolf
26/02/2019 20:36
HT

Huddersfield look toothless up front ...... so far despite pressing reasonably well.

Wolves just not creating enough chances.

It’s not a classic!!

Another first half without a goal, still 45 attacking our fans now.

Traore time??



https://i.pinimg.com/236x/74/97/b1/7497b1d1e231e8f83fc02db12bc473da--uk-football-sports-logos.jpg

26/02/2019 20:37
Doc tackled in penalty area & hurt but carries on.
Half time. Good first half, Terriers have played well although lacking ideas in final third. They have certainly not lacked effort and have frequently stifled Wolves attack.
Think Cavaleiro will make an appearance before too long in second hald

26/02/2019 20:42
This is the sort of game we simply have to win in order to finish best of the rest (7th)

Ivybridge Wolf
26/02/2019 20:50
We’me off. No subs

Underway again. No changes to Wolves team. Shot by Mountie blocked by Boly.
Keith Andrews talking bloody rubbish in commentary!!

Ivybridge Wolf
26/02/2019 20:53
Free header for Huddersfield from a corner, thank god they cor score! Guess who’s started the better? Not us. Early days

Jota blatantly blocked off but Raul given offside

Cheshire wolf
26/02/2019 20:59
Better by Wolves but the ball still not running for Jota & Raul

Cheshire wolf
26/02/2019 21:03
Mountie misses a golden opportunity with a header

Ivybridge Wolf
26/02/2019 21:03
Huddersfield miss a wonderful chance. Gloriously wide. Crowd thought it was in. So did I

C’mon Wolves. Wake up!!

Cheshire wolf
26/02/2019 21:05
Both teams short of ideas and ability tonight

Ivybridge Wolf
26/02/2019 21:06
Good play from Jota down the left. A lot of space to cross - only find the keeper. Frustrating but hopefully signs of positivity



https://i.pinimg.com/236x/74/97/b1/7497b1d1e231e8f83fc02db12bc473da--uk-football-sports-logos.jpg

26/02/2019 21:07
Doc and Neves are both struggling to make an impact tonight

Cheshire wolf
26/02/2019 21:09
Cavaleiro and MGW being prepared

Ivybridge Wolf
26/02/2019 21:11
Moutinho corner, Boly over. Harrumph.

Subs
MGW for Moutinho
Cav for Jota

Will this be enough to unlock Huddersfield?

26/02/2019 21:11
Best passage of play by Wolves all evening leads to a corner. Boly heads over

Joao replaced by MGW & Jota replaced by Cavaleiro for his 100th game

Cheshire wolf
26/02/2019 21:16
More good play by Wolves ends with Neves putting it very wide! Jonny & Boly our best players this evening - so far - in my opinion

Ivybridge Wolf
26/02/2019 21:21
15 minutes to go .......

Looks a bit brighter with Cav. A very promising attack thwarted by a poor cross by MGW. Frustration continues

Doc fractionally offside being played in by Neves

15 minutes to play. Wolves beginning to flex their muscles but still need to be better in front of goal

Cheshire wolf
26/02/2019 21:23
Aaron Mooy - who scored twice at the Mol - replaces Pritchard for H'field.

Costa replaces Jimenez who has largely been marked out of things tonight

Ivybridge Wolf
26/02/2019 21:25
Coasta is coming on with 12 to go. Takes the place of Jiminez. Who will score?

Mooy on for Pritchard

Corner to Wolves, Cav now on duty ..... terrrible corner overhit.

Hogg lucky to only get a yellow card for assaulting Costa!!

Ivybridge Wolf
26/02/2019 21:30
My word - Huddersfield wide - a whisker away after a great attack



https://i.pinimg.com/236x/74/97/b1/7497b1d1e231e8f83fc02db12bc473da--uk-football-sports-logos.jpg

Good break by Terriers but Mountie puts his shot wide. Lot of support from their fans.
Wolves poor overall tonight

Ivybridge Wolf
26/02/2019 21:32
Neves - overhits a great opportunity to release Cav on the right. Neves not been that good tonight. Who has?

Doc gets a yellow for making a clean tackle. Good opportunity for Huddersfield. Fluffed header, goal kick.

Yellow card for Doc. Good opportunity for H'field wasted.

Into 3 minutes added time

Mountie scores

H'field 1 Wolves 0

Ivybridge Wolf
26/02/2019 21:37

Huddersfield score. Mooy has made the difference, made a cross, Rui save, popped in front of the attacker to score from 2 yards

Imagine being told at the start if the season we would lose home and away to a team marooned to the bottom of the league.. you would be planning the championship journeys for next season. Beating spurs and Chelsea but losing to huddersfield , you couldn't make it up

Cheshire wolf
26/02/2019 21:41
All over and Huddersfield have done the double over us!! On balance they deserved it much mdore than we did. We lacked ideas and skill tonight in the face of desperate enthusiasm.
Difficult to deny H'field a goal and a win after the shi!!y season they have had, but we will need to do much better against our old foe Cardiff on Saturday.

Ivybridge Wolf
26/02/2019 21:42
1-0 FT.

We were second best of 2 fairly poor sides.

Take nothing away from Huddersfield, they were more up for it on the night, really, from the off.

We never, ever got going.

Incredibly disappointing where no player emerges with any real credit.

Hopefully just one of those nights ....... so one of our ‘guaranteed’ 3 point back to backs is cancelled. Step up Cardiff!

UTW.

26/02/2019 21:49
Absolute garbage. Can't blame the ref for that one,he gave us the majority.
Nobody looked interested,never looked like scoring, subs made no difference. Well done huddersfield you thoroughly deserved that win.
