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.
