‘Absolutely Fantastic’ – There Were Heroes During Wolves’ Misery In Southampton

'Absolutely fantastic' - There were heroes during Wolves' misery in Southampton

No fewer than 3,262 Wolverhampton Wanderers fans made the six-hour round trip to Southampton to watch Nuno Espirito Santo’s side fall to a dismal defeat.

Nathan Redmond (2) and former West Bromwich Albion striker Shane Long cancelled out Willy Boly’s first half header to ensure Wolves lost for the third time in four matches.

Wolves fans travelled to St Mary’s optimistic their heroes would be able to put their Wembley semi-final defeat to Watford to bed and secure a morale boosting three points.

It wasn’t to be, though, with Wolves producing arguably their worst performance of the season.

It certainly was defensively with Southampton‘s speedy forwards terrorising Romain Saiss, Conor Coady and Boly.

Had it not been for the returning Rui Patricio the scoreline would have been embarrassing.

Supporters on the train back to Wolverhampton spoke of a ‘memorable season’ but also disappointment that a big chance to set the seventh-place pace was passed up.

Defeats for Leicester City and Everton, and with Watford still to play, means Wolves still have the ‘best of the rest’ race in their own hands.
What’s happening at Wolves?

That is what the die hard Wolves fans packed into Southampton‘s away end will cling on to.
