Wolverhampton Wanderers notched up another good win against Bristol City in their last game of the year. Danny Batth’s 14th minuted red card for a double-footed challenge on Hordur Magnusson set the Wolves up for a tough match, which they eventually won by 2-1.
A slick passing move resulted in Jamie Paterson squaring the ball to Reid who was left unmarked and give the Robins the second half lead.
But it turned into a 10 men fight when Frank Fielding earned himself a sending off too 10 minutes after Bobby Reid’s goal.
And the Wolves converted the free kick opportunity with a deflected shot and got the equaliser.
Ryan Benett initially brought on to fill the void left by Batth turned out to be the difference maker in the 94th minute with a header from Barry Douglas’ freekick.
A thrilling matchup saw the hosts drop below Derby County in the playoff spots and confirm the dominance of Wolves in the EFL Championship so far this season.
Wolves Player Ratings :
John Ruddy – 7/10
Very well tested in between the sticks Ruddy put up a domineering display.
Willy Boly – 6/10
Was firm with his tackles and held the back line quite well.
Conor Coady – 6/10
Solidified the back line even after going one man down. Did not allow Bobby Reid much space to operate even with the Robins controlling majority of the possession.
Danny Batth – 3/10
A silly challenge which could have cost his side the game today. Sent off.
Matt Doherty – 6/10
Tireless running from the right on both…
