Wolves hold Everton to a goalless draw at Molineux

28 03 2010

Wolves are unbeaten in their last four league games

Wolves drew 0-0 with form team Everton to move up to the dizzy heights of 14th position in the Premier League.

Both teams lined up with a 4-5-1 formation which meant there was little space for anyone to create anything in the midfield area.

Wanderers mustered only one shot on target all game compared to Everton’s 14 and rarely gave Tim Howard any trouble in the Everton goal.

Everton were tidy with their passing but missed good chances at a sun-soaked Molineux.

Ronald Zubar seemed to have a huge, green Fifa 10 arrow above his head as he continuously bombed down the right flank to support the impressive Kevin Foley but his crosses didn’t find their intended targets.

My verdict: A great point for Wolves and our first clean sheet since beating Spurs in February. The fact there was no Mikel Arteta for Everton helped us as his replacement didn’t cause many problems. I’m a bit gutted that I didn’t get to see him play because he’s been on fire recently.

Man of the match: Jody Craddock – great display from the veteran to keep Saha and then Yakubu in check. A vital goal line clearance in injury time made sure Wolves took a point.

Flop of the match: Christophe Berra – despite some people saying he’s a no messing defender, I think he’s terrible. He just seems to mess up needlessly and bottle it under pressure. To compound Berra’s misery, Ronald Zubar said on Soccer Saturday that he had the worst accent in the whole Wolves squad.

Referee: Mike Jones – I’m not going to waste my time writing about the catalogue of bad decisions from the official today. In one word – shambolic!
