We say goodbye to Wolves as season ends

Last updated : 26 May 2003 By Tony Scholes

The Clarets will be guaranteed at least one visit to Cardiff next season after yesterday’s match saw Cardiff City clinch promotion at the expense of Queens Park Rangers with a late extra time goal.

But it was all eyes on the final today as Wolves took on Sheffield United. It was virtually all over at half time as Wolves led 3-0 and Sheffield United boss Neil Warnock found himself banished to the stands after misbehaving on the touchline during the first half.

The Wolves lead was such that there really was no point in Warnock sending anyone to listen in to their team talk at half time and once Michael Brown missed a chance to bring them back into it with a penalty early in the second half it was definitely all over.

I couldn’t help but think of Stan who was probably watching on his magic lantern. I just wondered whether he would have been wishing success for one of his pals David Jones or whether his support would have been for Neil Warnock. I don’t think there will be any sad faces in the Ternent household.

Our division is now complete for next season with the following line up:

Bradford City, Burnley, Cardiff City, Coventry City, Crewe Alexandra, Crystal Palace, Derby County, Franchise, Gillingham, Ipswich Town, Millwall, Norwich City, Nottingham Forest, Preston North End, Reading, Rotherham United, Sheffield United, Stoke City, Sunderland, Walsall, Watford, West Bromwich Albion, West Ham United and Wigan Athletic.
