Crouch pushes Wolves towards relegation

Published Add your comment

Rock-bottom Wolves moved closer to the Barclays Premier League relegation trapdoor as Peter Crouch's header condemned them to a 2-1 defeat at Stoke.

Results earlier in the day had presented Wanderers with an opportunity to reduce the six-point gap between them and safety, but for the third successive match, they took the lead only to end up with nothing.

Winger Michael Kightly put Wolves in front in the 26th minute with a lofted pass that drifted straight in, but Robert Huth drove home an equaliser with eight minutes of the first half remaining before Crouch - following up his recent wonder-strike against Manchester City - nodded in the winner just after the hour mark.
