Late Batth rescues a point.

THE VERDICT JUST when it felt like it would never happen, it did, but from the unlikeliest of sources.

It was skipper Danny Batth who finally, and deservedly, dragged his side back on to level terms with just two minutes left.

Captain marvel, the boy from Brierley Hill, bailed out his teammates.

But it should have never have come to that - especially with Wolves finishing the match with four forwards.

Some have criticised Kenny Jackett for his cautious approach to matches, but you certainly couldn't lay that at his door here.

He went all out in search of the equaliser and very nearly snatched a win from the jaws of defeat.

Wolves missed chance after chance to restore parity, both before and after Brighton were reduced to ten. But the plus side, is that Wolves are at least creating openings.

It would be far more worrying if they weren't.

And, on the subject of positivity, how welcome a sight was Nouha Dicko for fans of the old gold and black? The powerful striker replaced the anonymous Danny Graham at half time and made an immediate impact - going down for the penalty that was, and then wasn't.
