  • Description

    In a scrappy game with both teams playing without three of their regular first-time players, Wolves were lucky to hold Crystal Palace to a I-I draw in London on Saturday (28 November).

    Palace went ahead in the 36 the minute with a fine piece of opportunism from outside-left Scott. From then on it was a battle for the mastery of midfield, a battle which neither side ever looked like winning. Several evicting goalmouth incidents were the only redeeming features in a match played on a slippery surfaces, defying real control of the ball.

    Seventeen minutes after the interval the Londoners lost former England Star Bobby Tumbling with a recurrence of his hamstring injury. Six minutes later Wolves drew level thanks to a defensive mistake by McCormick which left the ever dangerous Cruran free to slip the ball past goalkeeper Jackson with insolent ease.

    Full marks to Wolves full back Bernard Shaw for his courage. Injured in the fourth minute, he played the whole game with blood seeping out of a head wound. With only two minutes to go he saves a point for Wolves and robbed Crystal Palace of the victory they seemed so set for by hurling himself across the goal to clear a Kember header off the line.
