[Archived] News Article -> 2011/12 Full-Time: Wolverhampton Wanderers 0 Rovers 2

Recommended Posts

Rovers picked up a crucial win and moved three points clear of the relegation zone thanks to a well-earned win against relegation rivals Wolves. Hoilett scored both goals as Rovers looked comfortable throughout and kept their first clean sheet of the season.

Wolves started the better, but Rovers soon found their way into the match and began to control the match as Formica ran things for Rovers in midfield, supported by the pace of Olsson and Hoilett. Despite Rovers being on top it was Wolves who went close to taking the lead when Ward blazed wide from close range when he looked almost certain to score after Rovers had failed to deal with a cut-back. With the half drawing to the close, Rovers got the goal that their good play deserved when Davis could only flick on Pedersen's long throw and Hoilett slid in to connect sweetly with the half-volley and leave Hennessey with no chance in the Wolves goal.

Rovers have been guilty of sitting back and attempting to defend leads on several occasions this season, but they continued to push forward in the second half and the result was put beyond doubt when Hoilett picked up the ball 30 yards away from goal and advanced toward goal before firing a low left-footed drive into the bottom corner from 25 yards. The Canadian was playing like a man possessed and continued to trouble the Wolves defence as Rovers looked for a third and comfortably saw out the match. Robinson was practically untested in the Rovers goal and did not have to make a save until the 90th minute, seeing out the match for Rovers' first clean sheet in 30 matches, a run that stretches back to April 20th.
