07/03 Wolves 2nd Half

By: David Peasgood
Date: 25/06/2000

Grimsby Town 1 Wolverhampton Wanderers 0
07 Mar 2000, Nationwide League Division 1

The second half started like the first with wolves puishing forward and looking dangerous, forcing corners and having all the ball. Considering our lack of height though, we won more than our fair share of ball with groves, lever and pouton especially defending well. Again as in the first half, wolves died after 10 mins and left the ball to town who spent the next 30 mins pressing forward wherever possible with a lot of movement down the flanks and reverting to their little triangular moves outside the box (but not getting anywhere). At least though we kept possession. Our only real chances were a Dave Smith shot from the edge of the box, palmed out for a corner and a Pouton shot which missed the post by inches.

As the seconds ticked away and a win became possible wolves got more agitated. Muscat was quite dirty and had the crowd on his back, Akinbye was well shackled by Lever and new starlet Branch came on but did bugger all. Their only real threat was from a large balding guy (Neil Emblem I think) who started most of their attacks. Several times Wolves players got free in the box but always managed to head wide or shoot over. There were several 'oh shit' moments when a goal looked certain but they blew it. Other than their 3 or 4 good chances most other wolves crosses were met with at least 2 town players hacking the ball away to safety and quite often Clare and Coldicott managed to counter from these clearances. With 5 mins left Wolves looked certain to equalise and Coyne made a superb point blank save from 2 yards out, then got to his feet and made it a double save, blocking the rebouind for a corner. It was one of many good Coyne moments as he came out and collected corners or crosses on many occasions. It must be his new lucky red shirt. At some stage Black replaced (i think) pouton and added fresh legs to the town attacks, but little to shout about.

At full time we had a very big cheer. Wolves must be pretty cheesed off with us after we stopped their play off aspirations last year. A 3 point jump of 6 places to 11th in the table and it's all looking rosy again.

top 3 stars: Coldicott 3 points, Lever 2 points, Pouton and Coyne 1 each (OK 4 stars then)
