Wolves Left Wandering Into Bottom 3
19th Feb 2013
Flicker and Micky Mellon have masterminded a master stroke after losing scott Goldbourne late in the day.
I feel the loss of Goldy late on forced a last minute change of formation and Flicker decided to go 4-4-2. It may have always been the plan as I do feel Tom Kennedy could have played left wing back with Delap on the right. What are the fans thoughts on this?
Wolves started much the brighter with Barnsley seemingly lacking shape from the loss of Goldbourne.
Bjorn Sigurdarson put the visitors ahead and it would become apparent that the Reds would have to show all the qualities Flicker has instilled in them. O'Hara rattled the bar shortly after as the visitors ran the early stages.
The reds came into the game and created several good chances in the final 20 minutes of the first half.
I stated in the break that though we had been poor in thr first half, they had been shocking.
David Flitcroft sent the boys out early for the second half, clearly wanting a better start than they had to the first half.
The Reds drew level when Vital Star Man Chris Dagnall headed from a Delap cross. Barnsley would not settle for the single point, and they continued to probe at the Wolves defence.
Dagnall would also play his part in the winning goal, he foraged down the left, centred for O`Grady to set it back for substitute Mellis, who side-footed a deflected effort into the bottom corner.
walking along, Singing a Song, Walking in a Flicker Wonderland a tune pushed by all here at Vital, rang out of the Ponty End and the place was buzzing.
Could be a little harsh, your thoughts please.
Rating 8 Sorry flicker, tactics fine on the road. but at home I would like to see us get it down.
