Well I enjoyed it.

Really good match which is a credit to both sides for producing tremendous excitement on the night.

Ok Wolves should have won comfortably but the ball didn't break Wolves way when it mattered.

Thats football, sometimes for all your good play the ball can be half a yard away from where you want it.

First half Doherty was always on, always the out ball and to be fair to him he used it well.

Second half they closed that off tactically but Wolves still worked the right side into Ivan Cavaleiro whose performance on the night was electric.
He produced moments of high quality into the Bristol box which on another night yields results.

Bristol for their part used the centre of midfield in a different manner to Wolves, they played well under pressure when on the ball.
manipulated the ball and the situation to move high through the midfield into attacking areas.

Wolves were looking for fewer touches as they constantly looked to feed the flanks.

The young lad they, Bristol, have on loan from the Albion looks a rare talent..Jonathan Leko tremendous at turning away from his marker with the ball at his feet.

Great game, we move on.

Agree with your summary Knocker, and let's give Bristol City credit, as they tried to play football too. We need to iron out our defensive weaknesses, but is this down to zonal marking?

Zonal marking, I dont think so, more the weather conditions and players making mistakes, leaving their zones.

I thought Ruddy was slightly impeded by Bobby Ried when he made that poor punch, but on another day would be clean with his execution.
His handling in general and taking of the crossed ball so far this season has been exemplary.

On our corners.

Those Cavaleiro corners are really difficult to deal with because Cav has an unusual technique when taking a corner.
He kind of cuts the ball as well as presenting a lower trajectory which is ideal for a forward player looking for a near post flick or attempt at goal.

Where as the Marshall corner because it has more height probably did a little more in the wind which took defenders under the ball to the delight of Danny Batth.

I dont think from the stands or on a TV screen you can quite get to grips with how conditions just make the ball deceive a player, just enough in flight.
