Memorable Match: Wolves 2-2 Norwich City

20 February 2020

As the Canaries enter the Molineux Stadium to take on eighth place Wolves, we’re looking back on one of the most memorable games against the side.

Back in February of the 2017-18 season, the Canaries came from 2-0 down to save a point against Wolves thanks to an injury-time winner from Nelson Oliveira.

What was on the line?

For Wolves, there wasn't too much to worry about. The Midlands side were sitting on 73 points in the table, nine points clear of second-place Cardiff. With just 13 games to go, there wasn’t a great chance of their place in the league being affected by this fixture.

For City, each point was crucial in climbing the table to earn their place in the play-offs. They sat just eight points behind Bristol City for the sixth-place play-off spot, meaning a win against Wolves was pivotal in that quest.

How the game unfolded

The hosts found the lead early on through an own-goal by Jamal Lewis, something he could not do much about, allowing Wolves to take the early advantage.

Diogo Jota struck the ball on goal, his effort hastily being saved by Angus Gunn. The danger wasn’t cleared so easily, however, as the effort dinked off of the ‘keepers shin and into the path of Lewis, who had no choice in seeing it deflected in.

The ball was cleared off of the line, but goal-line technology intervened, showing it had crossed and Wolves were owed the opener.

Things got worse for the Canaries when Alfred N’Diaye’s bullet-header screamed past Gunn in goal, doubling Wolves’ lead by the 25th minute.

Just minutes later Christoph Zimmermann salvaged the Canaries a goal to close the gap back down to one. A pacey header from the German centre-half fired towards goal courtesy of a James Maddison free-kick delivery, beating ex-Canary John Ruddy to find the back of the net.

From this point on the sides went to war, finding chance after chance, just unable to get the decisive strike. A particularly fond memory for Canaries fans will be Zimmermann’s headed-tackle to halt a Morgan Gibbs-White attack!

As the clock ran down, City were desperate for the leveller. Oliveira was the man to try and find that, striking the ball from 30 yards out as a last-ditch effort to equalise. The effort travelled nicely, creeping in past Ruddy to close the gap in the 93rd minute.

The leveller became the last kick of the game, as the referee’s whistle went shortly after, giving the Canaries a point to take home.

What happened next?

Wolves went on to win the league, as Cardiff weren’t able to close the hefty points gap between them. Wolves painfully finished their campaign on 99 points, just one shy of the 100-point milestone.

City went on to enjoy their season a little bit less, taking just 13 points from their remaining twelve fixtures, seeing them finish 14th in the table.

It was success all-round for both clubs in the next season, however, when Wolves finished a mighty seventh place in their first season back in the topflight, earning a spot in the Europa League qualifiers.

City’s success could be found in the Championship, going on to win the league with 94 points and earn promotion to the Premier League themselves, taking us to the current 2019-20 season, where both sides compete in the top division.

Match Reports

City well-beaten by Wolves at Molineux

23 February 2020

Norwich City were well-beaten by Wolverhampton Wanderers on what was a difficult afternoon at Molineux.

After a positive and encouraging opening 15 minutes for the Canaries, against the run of play Diogo Jota struck twice in the space of ten minutes to give the home side the lead.

And after the restart Raul Jimenez soon added a third.

Norwich weaved pretty patterns for spells of the game but ultimately lacked a cutting edge and were unable to find a way beyond Rui Patricio despite goal-scoring opportunities for Teemu Pukki and Max Aarons.

Daniel Farke made two enforced changes to the Canaries line-up. Ben Godfrey, back from a three-game suspension, and Jamal Lewis replaced injured pair Christoph Zimmermann and Sam Byram.

City started with a real impetus and could have had the lead inside ten minutes.

Lewis released the overlapping Kenny McLean, who from the left channel delivered a low centre for Teemu Pukki with the striker’s instinctive near-post effort repelled by Rui Patricio.

McLean then struck a sweet effort from 25 yards straight down the throat of Patricio after some good hold up play from Pukki.

But against the run of play Norwich were dealt a cruel blow on 20 minutes.

Following a Wolves move down the right side, Jota collected the ball inside the area before spinning away from a defender and firing through the legs of Tim Krul.

And the lead was soon doubled following a short corner kick from the hosts.

Romain Saiss pounced on a loose ball following Jonny’s delivery, firing across the face of goal where the unmarked Jota converted into an empty net from point blank range.

Prior to the interval Ruben Neves was twice denied from free kicks by superb saves from Krul. The second was a particularly impressive reflect stop, diverting a powerful effort from the edge of the area onto the crossbar.

After the restart the home side maintain their momentum and did add a third through Jimenez.

Jota escaped the attentions of the Canaries backline before striking a low shot against the base of the near post, with Jimenez alert to convert the rebounds into an unguarded goal.

Max Aarons then played a neat give-and-go with Todd Cantwell down the right side before seeing a low shot saved by Patricio.

On the hour mark, City introduced Emiliano Buendia and Josip Drmic in an attempt find a route back into the game.

Drmic created City's best chance to get on the scoresheet on 67 minutes when he fed Pukki on the edge of the box but his effort flew over.

At the other end, Doherty almost added a fourth late on but a Krul did well to clear the danger.
