Nathan Doyle was sent off as City were comfortably brushed aside by Wolves at Molineux this afternoon.
For the second game running, they were down to ten men inside half an hour – and Doyle will get little sympathy for it.
City were unlucky to hit the woodwork twice but they spent the majority of the game under the cosh once the central midfielder had gone for his early bath.
It was already a depleted away side minus James Hanson with a slight hamstring injury and Andrew Davies, who Phil Parkinson chose not to risk so soon after coming back from his lengthy lay-off.
The first half was mostly a case of attack against defence, particularly after Doyle’s dismissal.
Unlike Kyle Bennett last week, he could have no argument. Already on a yellow for pulling back Nouha Dicko, he dived in at Kevin McDonald with a reckless lunge.
A corner count of 11-0 at the break highlighted the Wolves dominance. But the best chance before their breakthrough goal came from City as Adam Reach smashed the angle of post and bar on a rare counter-attack.
It looked like City’s dogged defensive effort would see them through to the interval – until Wolves struck in the third added minute, McDonald scoring from the edge of the box.
But the woodwork came to Wolves’ rescue again seven minutes after the break. This time Stephen Darby was the unlucky Bantam, hammering the post after a neat passing exchange with Garry Thompson.
That became even more crucial two minutes later when the home side doubled their lead, Dicko claiming the goal as Bakary Sako’s cross was bundled in from close range.
Stephen Darby somehow managed to stop Leon Clarke’s shot on the line but Wolves strolled through the remainder.

4:54pm

All done, 2-0 to Wolves

4:53pm

Two minutes more of this as Dicko forces another save from McLaughlin

4:52pm

That's reduced the arrears to 15-1...

4:51pm

89 minutes gone and City have a corner! It came from a misplaced backpass from Batth but beggars can't be choosers...

4:51pm

That nice announcer just asked fans to take care when leaving Molineux because of wet surfaces. Hadn't noticed those through the pouring rain..

4:50pm

Clever bit of skill by Graham is let down by the cross and Wolves return on the attack to win yet another corner

4:49pm

Kenny Jackett responds to the requests from the Wolves fans and gives them a wave. Good afternoon's work for the home gaffer

4:48pm

Henry gets past Reach too easily on the touchline but his low cross is comfortably taken by McLaughlin.

4:46pm

More Wolves pressure and McArdle heads behind under pressure from Clarke.

4:43pm

McBurnie tries to wriggle his way past three old gold shirts in Wolves box. Goes down in a heap but City's appeals are waved away

4:42pm

City fans mimicking home crowd by cheering every time they complete a pass...

4:41pm

Henry fires low ball across goal-mouth. Any touch from Clarke there would have been 3-0

4:40pm

City currently cannot get out their half

4:38pm

The on-loan Aston Villa winger replaces Thompson

4:38pm

And a first sight in a City shirt of Jordan Graham...

4:38pm

And a first sight in a City shirt of Jordan Graham...

4:37pm

Henry plays short to Price before whipping cross past far post.

4:37pm

Wolves queueing up edge of City box. Another corner...

4:36pm

Crowd is 19,498 with around 1,500 from City

4:35pm

It's reached "ole" time every pass Wolves make

4:34pm

McBurnie shows good strength to win ball on halfway and set Reach on a run but the winger has no support

4:31pm

Clarke heads well over from ten yards out

4:29pm

McBurnie gets a chance in place of Gray

4:27pm

Darby shows real athleticism to avoid scoring own goal... Clarke clips a shot over McLaughlin but defender chases it back to his own line and somehow manages to avoid running it in himself. McHugh then completes the clearance with some cool control in the City goal mouth...

4:25pm

4:25pm

Debut booking for Clarke after foul on Jones in centre circle. But City would rather have played advantage as they tried to break...

4:23pm

Clarke looping header from Dicko cross lands on top of the City net. Going to be a long final half hour by looks of it...

4:22pm

Kenny Jackett takes no chances and replaces the winger with James Henry

4:21pm

A booking for Sako gets a cheer from the City fans but it's a long way back now

 

4:20pm

2-0 to Wolves! Sako drills cross along six-yard box and DICKO turns in. Last chance might be Darby's but Wolves striker claiming it.

4:17pm

Wolves go close. The whole ground looks on as Clarke stretches to reach a cross from Jacobs and the ball trickles past the far post almost in slow motion...

4:14pm

City hit the woodwork AGAIN! Darby combines neatly with Thompson and the right back hammers shot against the left post with McCarey beaten...

4:12pm

McHugh loves a good smother ... throws his body at another shot to muffle the danger on the edge of the City box

4:10pm

Jones leaves it for Reach who smashes the free-kick high into the stand...

4:10pm

Thompson is yanked down 30 yards from goal. Chance here?

4:09pm

The rain is at City's backs and getting harder

4:08pm

Defensively City are working hard. McHugh has got the Bramall Lane jitters out the system with a tremendous effort up to now

4:08pm

Oh look, another Wolves corner...

4:07pm

C'mon the Bantam ten.. They kick us off again

3:51pm

And that's the last kick of the half. 1-0 to Wolves

3:51pm

Sako cuts in and plays ball to McDonald, who strokes shot home from the edge of the box.

3:50pm

Heartbreak for City right on the break. 1-0 Wolves McDONALD

3:48pm

McLaughlin safely gathers Ricketts daisy-cutter. Must be half-time ref...

3:48pm

Rare mistake from Jones to give ball away just outside City penalty area. But McHugh rescues him with smothering block from Jacobs effort.

3:47pm

Golbourne cross has too much on it for Price as he arrives on edge of box and the midfielder cannot control the pass

3:46pm

Three added minutes

3:46pm

Reach works hard to beaver his way to byline and get cross in for Thompson. Just too high for the winger's leap

3:44pm

Jones launches counter, darting forward to pick out Reach whose shot is blocked.

3:43pm

Bit of pinball from the corner before McArdle clears into orbit - or at least the Wolves half.

3:42pm

Sako turns this way and that round Thompson before rattling fierce drive towards near post where McLaughlin turns behind.

3:42pm

Don't want to tempt fate but City are defending well so far. Jones working his wotsits off in midfield too

3:40pm

"You're just a small town near Walsall".... nothing like trying to rile the locals

3:38pm

And Wolves hit double figures in corners before half-time

3:37pm

Thompson launches into a flying tackle and comes out worse. Now getting treated as the ref hovers nearby

3:36pm

That caught everyone on the hop. Would have made a stunning first goal for the club. Reach says he likes to have a pop whenever the chance arises

3:35pm

Suddenly out of nothing, Bates cuts back to Reach who smashes angled shot against the Wolves bar!

3:34pm

First Wolves foul given after 33 minutes - gets a big cheer from one corner

3:33pm

That's the end of Mclean's afternoon. The way of the world for strikers when teams have man sent off early.... on comes Atkinson

3:32pm

Atkinson ready to come on for City debut. "No pressure lad, there are nine others out there..."

3:32pm

McHugh with the important interception from Sako cross as Wolves pile on the pressure.

3:30pm

City won't be disputing that dismissal. Doyle can't argue with the second yellow card, it was a reckless lunge

3:28pm

Doyle in real trouble here. Very late on McDonald - and OFF

3:27pm

Corner update: Wolves eight, City eight less.

3:27pm

Clarke and Dicko combining dangerously. Frenchman turns off McHugh whose thin touch deflects shot behind for a ... guess what

3:26pm

How do you describe a collection of corners? Flood, rush, whatever... Wolves have just had another one but City defend it well

3:25pm

At last a chance at the other end but Jones skies high, wide and pretty ugly

3:25pm

Stearman free header but it's straight into McLaughlin's midriff.

3:24pm

So close for Wolves! Great defending from Bates to put off Clarke, saving a certain goal after Sako nutmegged Doyle before playing in the striker.

3:21pm

3:21pm

Doyle pulls down Dicko and gets the first booking of the day

3:20pm

City fans make themselves heard as their team try to establish a foothold in the game. Settled down a bit now

3:18pm

This time Jacobs plays it low for Clarke cutting back but City read it and snuff out any danger

3:18pm

Clarke threatens again before feeding Jacobs whose cross is blocked at source by Bates. Another corner....

3:16pm

Better ball in from Thompson on right but Ricketts beats Gray to the header

3:16pm

Better play from City on the floor. Bates makes an overlapping run but cross is cut out

3:14pm

Yorkshire, Yorkshire comes the response...

3:13pm

"Is that all you take away" taunt the Wolves fans. City don't get that at most away grounds

3:13pm

City have got to use Gray properly and not go the aerial route a la Hanson.

3:12pm

Four Wolves corners in first ten minutes...

3:12pm

Brief panic as Jacobs finds room to get to byline but his cutback eludes everyone

3:11pm

All going one way right now. Bates blocks for another Wolves corner

3:09pm

Jones clears at near post but ball comes back into box. Clarke nods down for Dicko but McLaughlin makes smothering save to turn ball behind...

3:08pm

Meanwhile on the pitch, corner number two for Wolves.

3:08pm

Portly guy in the away stand generously lifts his shirt to the encouragement of the home support...

3:06pm

First corner of the day for Wolves but it is overhit by Jacobs

3:04pm

Chance for Thompson but he scuffs it wide. Ball broke to winger edge of the box and he should have got that on target...

3:03pm

Clarke robs McArdle on halfway line to launch Wolves attack. McHugh holds him up then Sako fires cross across face of goal.... Worrying flashback of Coventry game for the City defender there

3:02pm

Bates as expected lines up at left back again. McHugh looks much happier back in the middle

3:01pm

Wolves fans in good voice as the home team gets us going

2:59pm

Hi ho Wolverhampton..... Sounds like the cast of Crossroads singing behind me

2:58pm

Teams are coming out. City wearing their blue away shirts

2:53pm

2:43pm

2:36pm

Gray makes his first City start for 11 months - at the ground where he scored the winner when they last played here in the league in December 2002. Can lightning strike twice?

2:33pm

Leon Clarke makes his second debut for Wolves after returning to the club for £750,000 from Coventry this week.

He scored against the Bantams for the Sky Blues at Valley Parade in November.

WOLVES: McCarey, Golbourne, Stearman, Batth, Ricketts, Sako, McDonald, Price, Jacobs, Dicko, Clarke. Subs: Doherty, Elokobi, Henry, Evans, McAlinden, Ebanks-Landell, Flatt.

2:26pm

2:25pm

2:25pm

James Hanson and Andrew Davies are both missing for City.

Hanson is ruled out with a slight hamstring injury while Davies has been rested because Phil Parkinson wants to ease him back from his long lay-off.

The third change is enforced with the suspended Kyle Bennett replaced by Garry Thompson.

So Andy Gray starts for the first time since last March at Plymouth. Carl McHugh comes in for Davies but presumably Matthew Bates will continue at left back.

The bench is very young - and includes youth team defender James Pollard.

CITY: McLaughlin, Darby, McArdle, McHugh, Bates, Thompson, Doyle, Jones, Reach, Mclean, Gray. Subs: Taylor, Graham, McBurnie, Atkinson, Stockdill, Pollard, Jameson.

 

 

2:10pm

1:59pm

So no Matty Dolan in the City ranks today. They couldn't get the paperwork done in time on his deal to beat last night's 11pm deadline.

But expect a three-month deal for the Middlesbrough midfielder to get done as soon as the emergency loan window reopens on Friday.

1:57pm

1:56pm

Good afternoon and welcome from a chilly Molineux for City's clash with Wolves.

It's the first trip here since 2007 when Stuart McCall's side were beaten in the League Cup.

More famously, this is of course the scene where Paul Jewell's heroes clinched promotion to the Premier League 15 years ago.

Great start to season and now a relegation scrap . No win in 11 and seven points off 21st time to panic and look at sides below us as long as finish 20th or higher now be happy. Time to start changes first give Wednesday keeper a game, Davies to start each game don't bother with bringing in gently drop bates useless time for jones to take a back seat also replace with Atkinson. Thompson too slow not league one player let Bennett start and bring in another striker too in compete with Hanson and McLean as no competition and need this

It's even worse than that. It's one win in nineteen, including the cup loss at Rotherham.

Todays game had a feeling of fait accompli about it, as soon as the whistle was blown.

I fully understand the omission of Davies and saving him for the "six pointers" coming up. Doyle appears to have thoroughly let his team mates down and I don't think the ten men could be faulted, given the quality of the opposition.

It'll be interesting who PP pairs with Davies. I've been mystified why McHugh has been missing most of the season and even more mystified by the recruitment of other Centre Backs, which sent him down the pecking order. The lad's never let us down when he's played in his preferred position and evidently turned in another sterling performance today.

We certainly need a win from the next couple of games, otherwise the relegation zone will be too close for comfort.

One win but ten draws. Once the new signings are bedded in and Andrew Davies is back the wins will come and this blip will be seen for what it is.

Can't say I'm worried, It's obvious that although we don't win many games we don't lose many either. Sounded like McHugh had an Immense game today, in fact to only lose 2-0 at Wolves having played over an hour with ten men says the self belief and character is still there in spades. This was always going to be a tough fixture, to have a player sent off made it far harder to get a positive result. Think BCFC has more than enough quality to finish comfortably in this league.

Apart from McLaughlin and McBurnie who weren't mentioned all your assessments were demolished by Phil Parkinson in his aftermatch comments. Have you seen Jameson to compare him to McLaughlin? Parkinson and Parkin have played in front of a range of professional keepers and Lee Butler has been one. They know a good one from a bad one. McBurnie is 17 and has just made the incredible leap from youth football to facing tough uncompromising League One defenders and you've written him off already. I realise Phil Parkinson and his team would only read these comments for the amusement value but, if they did happen to stop by, they would shake their heads and think how little these people who comment understand.

Jones love to bits but too old and slow , Doyle not consistent Thompson not good enough for league two never lasts ninety mins , mcburnie not gonna make it and with gray as only competition for McLean and Hanson too easy for them to become com placement need another striker.
Um Mcburnie not going to make it He is a young lad who i am very sure he is going to make it you are looking at a very good player in the making next time you see him please watch carefully and you will see what i see Take care

13 points out of around 50 plus. simply not good enough. Relegation beckons unless we start scoring oals
And your answer is to sack parky and replace him with the ex Beeston manager. I believe he has lost more games this season than parky. Losing to a league 2 team and thrashed by Wednesday. You wouldn't know a good manager if he smacked you in the face

I think (and hope) we shall see Atkinson start the next home game. The Hanson & wells partnership was exceptional, but that is history and, imo we need to get more players further up the pitch. And now Davis is back I can't see a reason for being so defensive. Atkinson and Jones in the middle for me.

I said nothing of that which you claim. Factual a good manager had been sacked at Beeston and we had achieved only one win in 1 games or so in 16 plus games.

The facts are not linked and I was not saying that Parky should be sacked and replaced by McDermott who, incidentally, seems to have got his job back but for how long?

Lancaster your talking crap. Davies has to be gradually brought back. If he had played on Saturday then broke down where would that leave us. McBurnie might be out of his depth atm but to say he won't make it is a joke
