Big win for Wolves

With a hard fought 1-0 victory on Monday, Wolves moved up to fourth place in the Championship after beating fellow promotion rivals and fellow West Midlands club West Bromwich. Baggies striker Diomansy Kamara wasted two clear chances late on but Wolves earned a sixth successive win.

The game had lots of spirit and tough tackling and in particular West Brom defender Paul Robinson threw a few harsh tackles. He should have been, at a minimum, booked for his late tackle on Michael Kightly but escaped sanction. Kevin Phillips had a first half goal disallowed as he was ruled to be offside. The game remained scoreless until the 83rd minute when substitute Jay Bothroyd coolly slotted home a left-footed shot from about 12-14 yards out.

The top half of the table currently looks like this:

GP GD PTS
1 Birmingham 36 21 70
2 Derby 37 13 69
3 Sunderland 37 19 66
4 Wolverhampton 37 5 65
5 West Brom 37 21 63
6 Cardiff 37 14 62
7 Preston 36 12 62
8 Southampton 37 14 59
9 Stoke 37 15 57
10 Colchester 37 10 53

Today sees a large number of fixtures including a clash between Cardiff and Southhampton with both sides hoping to make the promotion playoffs. Second-place Derby will look to take all three points from relegation strugglers QPR while top-of-the-table Birmingham face Norwich. Other fixtures are listed below.
