Take a trip down memory lane on Monday evening as Big Match Revisited brings supporters a fresh look at Wolves’ dramatic comeback victory over Leicester City back in 2003.
In the third episode of the series, Mikey Burrows and Chris Iwelumo look back on a match which saw Wolves fight back from 3-0 down at half-time to win 4-3, as Dave Jones’ side found their feet in the top flight, following promotion.
As ever, Mikey and Lumes are joined by those who represented Wolves that dramatic day, as Lee Naylor, Jody Craddock and Kenny Miller, as well as manager Jones, reminisce on one of the club’s greatest ever comebacks.
Despite looking dead and buried, Wolves had character in abundance and a pair of Colin Cameron penalties had Molineux believing, before further goals by Rae and Henri Camara, five minutes from time, lifted the roof off the old stadium.
Reminiscing on the occasion, Lumes said: “Any manager will look at the teams coming up and think you’ve got to be picking up three points. You know they’re going to be hard-fought, but you think, they’ve been newly-promoted as well, so that’s where we’ve got to be picking up three points.
“You break the league into little competitions, little groups, and try to pick up points as you go. This is definitely one of the matches Dave Jones would have thought was important to take three points in.
“They [Leicester] had some experienced Premier League players at the time, who’d been there and done it, so it was an interesting challenge, but Wolves had a good group, with some experienced heads as well.
“It had been a disappointing start to the campaign, but you’ve got to start somewhere, and this game’s iconic, so it’s definitely an exciting one.”
