Ings, Redmond and Sims linked up surprisingly well, and although Ings did not score, he linked up our pacy pair very well, and despite not having much possession we could have scored a hatful of goals.
Yet again great game management from Ralph, and a great result against a very talented Wolves team.

Despite Wolves dominance, we still created great chances and Sims gave me nightmares with that miss !! Left foot shot first time, or go round the keeper FFS. Ings was quite instrumental in creating our chances, including the assist for Redmond's 2nd, but he seemed off the pace. Likewise Valery seemed jaded and JWP shoes us he is not a holding midfielder.
The 2nd half subs changed the game for us. Rom immediately bossed the centre of the park and this allowed Hoj to have a bit more freedom and JWP look much more comfortable in a more attacking role (he covered an impressive match high 7.8 miles). Long put in a great shift and harassed the wolves defence for half an hour and was rewarded with his goal - which looked off side but TV showed he was on - so he is now in the prolific category !! :-)
Just a shame we couldn't add to the goal tally and how Yoshi's close range effort was saved, was unbelievable. I fancied a hatrick from Redmond too !! Never mind, we held out even with some indifferent defending, especially in the 1st half, but 3 points thank you and now we're virtually safe.
Maybe the board knew we would win and were justified in issuing the season ticket renewal details early ? Hopefully they will allow Ralf a major overhaul in the summer and we can avoid a 3rd straight relegation fight.

Tough luck for Romeu, sacrificed on the table of tactics, but I´m sure he understands and accepts the value of tactical speculation and versatility.
It feels great to have a manager who so obviously seems to do his job very well in every department of managing.
