Premier League Full Time Report: Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Tottenham Hotspur – Wolves and Spurs cancel each other out in six goal thriller (Part 2)

 

In the 20th minute the resulting corner, which was whipped in by Jarvis got cleared by the Spurs defence. However the ball fell to Karl Henry who returned it to Jarvis and his second time cross was met by Kevin Doyle who glanced the ball into the back of the net via his head. As a result Wolves took the early lead in the game and started to look like a real force in the game.

Two minutes later Tottenham looked to reply to the early goal from Wolves. Luka Modric came forward and played Steven Pienaar on with a pass. The midfielder then found his way in the box and fired a low shot, which managed to hit the side of the net and as a result Wolves were let off the hook.

However Pienaar seemed to be feeling it in the game and in the 25th minute he used his footwork to get into the box and then took a pop at goal. However his effort got deflected back into play and fell to Modric. The Spurs midfielder decided to get selfish and instead of playing an open Pavlyuchenko on took a pop at goal, which went horribly wide of the mark.

In the 30th minute Pavlyuchenko got hold of the ball and twisted and turned on the edge of the area, before somehow playing Defoe on. The English international then went on to bent an unstoppable shot into the top corner of the post and got Spurs level on goals with Wolves as a result.

Five minutes later Tottenham were at it once again as they went up by two goals to one in the game. Modric and Defoe went on to exchange a series of one-twos and then the forward went on to bend an even better shot into the back of the net. Defoe had everyone on the edge of their seats with his first goal, but this time around he had everyone out of their seats and wondering just where the player had been hiding this ability to curl the ball beyond belief.

As the match progressed Wolves went on to attack the Spurs backline once again. Doyle took a twenty yard pop at the Tottenham goal, but his shot was rebounded and fell to Milijas. Milijas was then taken down by Hutton and Wolves were awarded a straight penalty.

Kevin Doyle stepped up to take the resulting kick and in the 41st minute he sent a calm and composed finish into the back of the net after sending Gomes the wrong way.

Following that goal the first-half came to a conclusion, with both the teams locked at two goals apiece and both looking to be capable of doing just about anything in the game.
