MATCHDAY QUOTES

"Molineux celebrated wildly as Wolves claimed a point."

*BBC Sport*
Saturday, 24 October 2009

*Sylvan Ebanks-Blakeโ€™s late penalty earned Wolves a deserved point against Midlands rivals Aston Villa at Molineux.*

Villa looked on course to maintain their best start to a Premier League season since 1999 when Gabriel Agbonlahor steered substitute Emile Heskeyโ€™s pass beyond Wolves keeper Wayne Hennessey with only 11 minutes left.

But Wolves responded and equalised four minutes later to claim a vital draw after Steve Sidwell needlessly felled Michael Kightly in the area and Ebanks-Blake slammed home a ferocious spot kick.

It gave Mick McCarthyโ€™s side a fair reward on an afternoon high on endeavour but short on real quality, especially from a Villa side who have made such an impressive start to the new campaign.

Indeed McCarthy may feel Wolves should have come away with three points after creating the best opportunities in a first-half spell of supremacy which saw a clear penalty claim denied when Richard Dunne fouled Kevin Doyle, Christophe Berraโ€™s header kicked off the line by James Milner and Ebanks-Blake miss two good chances.

Wolves, ultimately, were grateful for a point after Agbonlahorโ€™s late strike looked to have punished them for running out of attacking ideas after the break.

Villa were unchanged from the side that earned an outstanding victory against Chelsea last Saturday - and should have built on
