The points are shared

22:522 months ago

Full Time: Wolverhampton Wanderers 1-1 Southampton

A game that started off slowly, bursted into life for Wolverhampton Wanderers as they made chance after chance to win the game. The Saints scored through Theo Walcott as the points are shared.
22:492 months ago

Added Time

3 minutes have been added on.
22:472 months ago

Wolves look like the team that is going to win it

If either side is going to win it, it will be the hosts. If fans were here, I think Wolves would be winning.

5 minutes or so remain.

22:432 months ago

Neto comes close again

Neto again causing trouble down that left hand side as he forces a good save from McCarthy with his feet. Walker-Peters gave the ball away and Wolves hit on the counter attack.
22:382 months ago

Wolves have it in the net but it's offside

Raul has the ball in the back off the net but he is offside. 
22:352 months ago

Wolves have their goal

Raul Jimenez takes a shot from the edge of the box, which beats McCarthy but hits the post. The rebound falls to Neto who puts it home. THE GOAL STANDS!!
22:342 months ago


Pedro Neto equalises. VAR having a look though.
22:322 months ago

The Wolves tactics

4-4-2 now for Wolves.

Traore on the right, Neto on the left and Jimenez and Podence up top.

22:312 months ago

Wolves chance

Neto off the bench and already has a chance. Podence squares it to Neto on the edge of the box, but takes too long to get the shot away.
22:292 months ago

Wolves substitution

69' Neves is taken off for Pedro Neto as Wolves try to make more chances.
22:272 months ago

Raul misses again

Moutinho clips a ball into the box and Raul Jimenez finds himself in space, but can't control it and sees it go behind for a goal-kick.
22:252 months ago

Should be 2-0 to the Saints

It should be 2-0. Really, really poor defending which allows Theo Walcott in behind, one-on-one, but he fires wide. Huge chance.
22:222 months ago

Wolves need a change

Wolves need a change. Jimenez has been far too isolated so far, and Pedro Neto could help that by linking up the play.
22:182 months ago

Saints take the lead

Theo Walcott finds himself in space at the back post, completely unmarked. Nelson Semedo caught sleeping and Walcott has a tap in at the back post after being set up by Che Adams. Poor defending from Wolves.
22:162 months ago

GOALLLLL Southampton.

Southampton take the lead through Theo Walcott.
22:132 months ago

Raul this time

Aït-Nouri makes another chance as he gets to the bye-line from a corner and crosses the ball in to a free Raul Jimenez, who can't convert the header. He basically missed the ball from a free header. Sums up Wolves' day so far.
22:122 months ago

Podence with the chance

Daniel Podence gets the shot off with his left foot as he tries to beat McCarthy at the near post. Aït-Nouri did very well to play him through into the box.
22:102 months ago

Adama running free

The first time in the game Adama Traore can break free and use that electric pace. He makes his way to the bye-line but the cross has gone behind for a goal kick.

Still an evenly balanced game.

22:042 months ago


We are underway for the second half of this match. Can Nuno's side produce another magic second half performance?
21:592 months ago

Wolves will look to get going in the second half

21:512 months ago

Half Time thoughts

A dreadful half for both sides, with only a handful of chances being made by either side.

Southampton have come closest through Armstrong who was played through by Che Adams.

Nuno will be hoping for a change from his side in the second half.

21:482 months ago


Wolverhampton Wanderers 0-0 Southampton

The problem for Wolves so far

21:422 months ago

Me trying to think of what to type

Me thinking of what to type while watching this game. Absolutely nothing happening.

A post shared by Wolves (@wolves)

21:382 months ago

Podence wins a header...

Moutinho whipped in a cross from the free-kick and Podence wins the header as he's unmarked which forces a good save from McCarthy.

21:342 months ago

Armstrong comes close again

Armstrong goes through and sends his shot wide after being rolled through by Che Adams. Closest either side has come so far.
21:322 months ago

Adama unleashes a shot

Adama Traore does what Adama Traore does, twitsing and turning and then striking. The shot takes a deflection which forces McCarthy to make a save.
21:292 months ago

"I'm going to go and paint a wall"

Someone next to me comes out with the statement...

"I'm going to go paint a wall or something..."

That sums up the game so far. 27 minutes gone so far.

21:262 months ago

Southampton can be dangerous

Ward-Prowse and Verstergaard will be a combination that Wolves will struggle with tonight. Wolves can not give away any set pieces today.
21:162 months ago

Southampton come close

Wolves 0-0 Southampton.

Walcott found space in the box and his shot well saved by Patricio down low.

21:072 months ago

Wolves come close

A good strike from Nelson Semedo is saved low down by the keeper but the rebound comes out to Leander Dendonker who forces a good follow up save from McCarthy.
21:032 months ago

Dodgy start from Boly

Ball crossed into the box and Willy Boly misses the ball. Aït-Nouri has to put it behind for a corner.

Nuno on Coady and his absense

20:482 months ago

The danger-man for Wolves tonight

James Ward-Prowse will be the danger man today that Wolves will have to deal with from midfield. They will not want to give away any cheap free-kicks around the edge of the box.
20:242 months ago

Results elsewhere



20:192 months ago

This will be a fascinating watch

Will Conor Coady be a miss?


20:162 months ago

Champions League winner is back!!

Ryan Bertrand is back for the Saints tonight.

His experience will be a big boost for the visitors as they try and climb back to the top three of the table.

20:132 months ago

Adama brings up his century

Adama Traore brings up his 100th appearance for Wolves as he starts today. A career that has had its ups and downs, but on his day a man that can be a game winner for Wolves.
20:062 months ago

How much will Wolves miss him?

20:052 months ago

No captain fantastic

Wolves are without their captain fantastic Conor Coady tonight as he is still self isolating after being in contact with someone who had COVID-19 whilst on international duty.

Dendonker fills in for him today.

19:452 months ago

Pre game thoughts for the visitors

The Saints will be without their man man Danny Ings who is still out injured.

19:402 months ago

Pre game thoughts for the hosts

Wolverhampton Wanderers potential team news.

19:352 months ago

The start of the season for both sides

Southampton sit fifth in the table after their first eight games, having won five and drawing one. They have looked good so far this season, as Che Adams and Danny Ings have formed a formidable partnership.


For the hosts, Wolves have looked indifferent this season. Sometimes they have looked unplayable, as they were against Crystal Palace. Other times they have looked like a team that doesn't know how to attack.


Tonight's game will be very interesting!!
