ROTTEN LUCK GOES ON FOR KENNY’S BOYS
WHEN it rains, it pours, they say – and that’s certainly how Wolves boss Kenny Jackett must feel.
After an awful run of four straight defeats, shipping 14 goals in the process, Wanderers looked something back to their normal selves. Before Rajiv van La Parra was harshly sent off, Wolves seemed set to end their own shocking sequence – and halt Bournemouth’s unbeaten streak in the same breath.
But not only did Wolves go down to 10 – and later nine – men, they also conceded a deflected leveller that must have left Jackett looking towards the heavens.
Once that went in, you knew a Bournemouth winner was coming too.
Cherries boss Eddie Howe, on the other hand, must feel he can do no wrong. His side got away with a below-par first half and departed with not only their undefeated run intact but another victory. If such odd bits of good fortune continue to complement their obvious qualities, the Premier League beckons.
