Moving on Up

A lot of action since the last post. The first action was not very promising. A 0-0 home draw with today's bottom of the league club Notts County and crashing out of the JPT by losing to them on penalties did not bode well.

The international weekend saw Wolves fall some points behind the top two clubs since both both gained 3 points from their games as Wolves did not play. Then there was the Coventry game. Wolves conceded a late goal which saw them slip further behind the leading two. However, Posh's surprise defeats in midweek and yesterday and Coventry's defeat of top of the table Leyton Orient, have meant that Wolves' straight wins over Oldham and Bradford have placed them second to the Orient by three points. Wolves do have a game in hand as well.

Yesterday's game against Bradford, was potentially a tough game. Bradford have been in the leading pack for sometime and although they had faltered in the last three games, they provided a potential banana skin for the Wolves.

The Yorkshire side took the lead on 14 minutes and brought to an end Wolves' record of not conceding a first half goal this season. But 4 minutes near the half hour mark, Wolves turned the game around. It took great saves from Carl Ikeme to keep the lead but at the end of the day, Wolves move to second place after Peterborough slipped again.
