|1st HALF ACTION (Photo by Jamie aged 9)|
NUFC's sickenin' home record went to 7 defeats so far this season against a very average Wolves side who we should and could have beaten!
The ref Mike Dean didn't help matters eetha, but he wasn't to blame for the forst goal in the 17th minute when an unmarked Jota had the simple task of beatin' Dubravka in The Toon goal to put the visitors 'one up' @ The Leazes End!
|PRE MATCH 'WARM UP' AT THE GALLOWGATE END|
It didn't take lang for us to get back on level torms when a Rondon free kick from the edge of the box hit the underside of the bar and rebounded to him---he then sent a cross in for Perez to get on the end of it and prod into the corner of the Wolves net!
Mike Dean the ref didn't help us one bit az several crunchin challenges from wor visitors went unpunished!
|2nd HALF ACTION AT THE LEAZES END|
The 2nd half started az we attacked The Leazes goal, but within 5 minutes of the restart the 'game changer'!
Yedlin lost the baall and with the Wolves player clear on goal Yedlin pulled him back and there woz anly one outcome az Dean produced the red card and we were doon to 10 men for the rest of the match!
Perez woz elbowed in the face in the penalty box (a clear penalty), but az he lay prostate in the box the blind ref waved 'play on' and Wolves nearly scored, but Dubravka saved the day by putting the baall oot for a corner!---Anly then did Dean saunter back to the opposite penalty box to see if Perez woz ok!
He wasn't and had to gan to the halfway line for treatment, meenin we anly had nine players on the field of play az Wolves went for the winner!
Perez wasn't a 'happy bunny' but came back on and The Toon had their best period of the game az WE went for the winner!
And then the 'Sunday Sickener'!----havin held oot for virtually the whole of the 2nd half with 10 men, Wolves scored in the 4th minute of injury time when Perez lost possession of the baall and a Jota shot woz saved by Dubravka, but he anly palmed it to Doherty and he had the easy task of heedin the baall into the unguarded goal to break wor hearts! (yet again in a home game!)
We remain in 15th place after the weekends results and then
we heed for 'uddersfield next week in a '6 pointer', az they are anly 3 points behind us in thord bottom place!
It's definatly 'squeeky bum time' folks!
