I had a feeling that this wouldn’t be quite as straightforward as others seemed to think.
Norwich might be entrenched in the bottom three, but they’d won two on the spin heading into this and are full of the new manager bounce.
They certainly edged this contest, with Jose Sa making a couple of key saves to keep the Canaries at bay.
Our number one is growing in stature with every passing game and was a clear man of the match on a day when his teammates underwhelmed.
Wolves were tidy enough in possession, but failed to create clear-cut chances.
That may be due in part to another anonymous showing from Trincao, who failed to justify his selection.
The Portuguese is undoubtedly talented but appears far too lightweight to cope with the rigours of English football.
Traore would surely have been a better choice from the off, especially given the Norwich defence’s propensity for playing themselves into trouble.
Whatever you may think of the Spaniard, he can’t be expected to turn a game when he’s played out of position. Seeing him shifted out to right wing-back was probably the most frustrating thing about this game.
Alas, Bruno has more than earned our trust at this stage and can count himself unlucky to be deprived of the services of Podence after his standout showing last weekend.
And there’s something to be said for a team that can grind out results when under par. We might not always be pretty, but we’re proving a tough nut for teams to crack.
Still, with some really tough games on the horizon, it’s hard to shake the feeling that this was an opportunity missed.
