Ståle Reflects On Rare Away Defeat


20:22 20th October 2012

Wolves’ run of three consecutive league away victories and clean sheets came to an abrupt halt at the John Smiths Stadium this afternoon.

Wanderers went into the break with a two goal deficit, with Town dominating the opening proceedings.

However, Wolves could have snatched at least a point with Manager, Ståle Solbakken, reflecting on a spirited comeback attempt:

 “It was a good second half performance but we had a long way to go after being punished hard in the first half.

 “They scored two great goals, maybe after a lack of marking in the penalty area and some stupid ball losses, but they were all over us for the first 20 minutes.

 “But after that we came back into it and it was a much better second half performance.

 “We were unlucky. That was Kevin Doyle’s 4th or 5th time hitting the post this season, and he had a good shout for a penalty, but that’s life.

 “It was a slow start to the game, but a good second half and we have to pick up from there.


Stoke City loan signing, Jermaine Pennant, made his first appearance for Wolves with the winger showing some promising signs of what’s to come:

 “As the team as a whole, Jermaine grew into the game and produced some good stuff as the game went on.

 “At half time we said it was all about the next goal and keeping up the tempo.

 “We knew they would be tired after doing a lot of running in the first half and that’s what happened.

 “We have another game on Tuesday and we have to pick ourselves up.”
