MATCH FO­CUS

Yorkshire Post - Sports Monday - - FOOTBALL -

Good day: Philip Billing

Head and shoul­ders above any­one on the field, even al­low­ing for Aaron Mooy’s two goals. His en­ergy, power and drive were key to Town tak­ing all three points, Billing’s af­ter­noon epit­o­mised by the goal-line clear­ance that saw Jimenez de­nied by the slimmest of mar­gins.

Bad day: Nunu Espir­ito Santo

Looked dis­tinctly unim­pressed by his side’s strug­gles to match the en­er­getic vis­i­tors. The Por­tuguese’s look of dis­dain as Adama Traore looked across to the bench af­ter fail­ing to win a free­kick said it all.

Key mo­ment: 73rd minute

Town’s sea­son is lit­tered with games where they have failed to cap­i­talise when on top, al­low­ing the op­po­si­tion back into pro­ceed­ings. Only once the vis­i­tors had a two-goal cush­ion, Aaron Mooy’s free-kick do­ing the trick, did the three points look safe.

Ref watch: Kevin Friend

Ex­cel­lent game. Used his cards well and de­serves huge credit for award­ing the free-kick that led to Town’s sec­ond goal. Steve Mounie had been fouled but tried to stay on his feet only for a sec­ond de­fender to clear the ball and Friend rightly pe­nalised that ini­tial foul.

Ver­dict

Com­fort­ably Town’s best dis­play on the road and maybe of the en­tire sea­son. Against a Wolves side who have rightly won a host of ad­mir­ers over the past 16 months, Town were dom­i­nant and could have won by more.
