Oliveira snatches late point for City at Wolves

21 February 2018

Nelson Oliveira's stoppage-time strike helped Norwich City salvage another late point in a 2-2 draw with Wolves at Molineux.

First-half goals from Diogo Jota and Alfred N'Diaye got Wolves off to a flying start but Christoph Zimmermann got City right back into the match with his first for the club.

City had to be patient for their chance to equalise and with the last kick of the game, Oliveira let fly from distance and managed to find the bottom corner to rescue a point for the Canaries. 

Daniel Farke made three changes from the side which started the East Anglian derby with Ipswich Town on Sunday, introducing Dennis Srbeny for his full debut in place of Oliveira. The other two changes saw Mario Vrancic and Marley Watkins come in for Josh Murphy and Alex Tettey, moving the captaincy over to derby goalscoring hero Timm Klose.

After a slow start to proceedings at Molineux, the game burst into life on 13 minutes. Vrancic’s clipped ball over the top of the Wolves defence was misjudged by both Conor Coady and Willy Boly but Harrison Reed couldn’t guide his half-volley on target when through on-goal.

City were immediately punished at the other end when Jota was released and he coolly slotted past Angus Gunn via the post, although referee James Linington still had to confirm whether the ball had indeed cross the line, which he did.

Moments after Barry Douglas went close to adding to the host’s advantage on 21 minutes with a curling long-range effort, Wolves did eventually double their lead. Douglas whipped a corner towards the near-post and N’Diaye rose highest to flick the ball past Gunn.

City got themselves back into the match immediately though after Vrancic was fouled down the right. James Maddison stepped-up and curled the ball into the far post for Zimmermann to nod past John Ruddy for his first in City colours.

The Canaries searched for an equaliser before half-time but the best they could muster was a long-range Watkins shot from the edge of the box which was smothered by Ruddy. Wolves’ best chance to make it three came from a hopeful Douglas free-kick which went well wide of goal.

The hosts threatened a third on 55 minutes when City lost possession in their own half. Matt Doherty squeezed a cross into the box from the right but Ivan Cavaleiro could only side-foot wide from around 10 yards.

City’s first effort since the restart fell to Watkins ten minutes later after some nice interplay involving Moritz Leitner, Maddison and Srbeny. The latter laid the ball off to Watkins just inside the box but the Welshman’s low shot was well saved by Ruddy.

Farke introduced Oliveira, Murphy and Onel Hernandez in an attempt to convert City’s possession into a late equaliser and it was the Oliveira who managed to win a point for City with the last kick of the match.

Maddison went close for the Canaries from inside the box on 88 minutes but it was Oliveira who snatched a point to send the travelling fans home with something to cheer. From at least 30 yards, he struck a dipping shot into the bottom corner beyond the grasps of Ruddy.
