Ward milestone tainted by loss

Stephen Ward's 200th league appearance for Wolves did not end the way he would have wished, as the skipper for the day saw his side beaten 2-1 at Watford.

The Molineux outfit had Christophe Berra controversially sent off after a tussle with Troy Deeney - and it was the Hornets frontman who ended up bagging the winner.

That left Wolves without a win in seven games - and the pressure mounting on manager Stale Solbakken.

"Yet again things haven't gone our way and we are fighting uphill battles every time we step onto the pitch," Ward told the club's official website. "It would have been a great point had we nicked it having gone down to ten men so early. But again we go away with nothing.

"It wasn't a sending-off. The ref said he played advantage to give Deeney the chance to try and score. To let him advance and get his shot in as he did - and then send Christophe off - is hard to take. It's tough for referees and he'll say it is the letter of the law but we are disappointed with the decision.

"My 200th appearance is immaterial to be honest - the game was the most important thing. But it is great for me to get that milestone. Hopefully I can build on that now - I don't want to rest on that number, I want to keep playing."

e made his power play to try and get Sheikhy to raise his wages or trade him to PSG. PSG were probably not interested and he is stuck with no cake and no vacation. @Jay_D> Surely you jest about FFP being real, right? All Platini is doing is making billionaries pay measly fines, so he and his cronies can get rich. If a fool can pay 50 mil for David Luiz, he will happily pay some fine to UEFA. FFP has failed as for it to succeed UEFA had to take it...
