VAR A Disgrace? Wolves Denied Three Points Against Leicester
Feb. 15, 2020
Wolves were held to a goalless draw with 10-man Leicester at Molineux after Willy Boly's header was disallowed.
Boly had appeared to have given Wolves the lead late in the first half but Pedro Neto was adjudged to have been offside by the narrowest of margins in the build-up.
Brendan Rodgers' side dominated possession in the early stages with Wolves content to play on the counter-attack and there were few clear chances in the first half.
But the drama came late in a half that was delayed after James Maddison's high boot drew blood from the head of Matt Doherty, earning the Leicester playmaker a yellow card.
It was Doherty's header across goal that Boly nodded home to seemingly give Wolves the lead but a VAR check spotted a marginal offside against Pedro Neto in the build-up.
With everyone wondering who would respond better to the decision in the second half, both teams came out and struggled after the break.
Leicester were unable to cut through while Wolves' counter-attacks became rarer until Nuno Espirito Santo turned to Adama Traore just after the hour mark.
Wolves are in Europa League action at Molineux on Thursday as they face La Liga side Espanyol in the first leg of their round of 32 tie then they'll host bottom club Norwich in the Premier League on the following Sunday.
Leicester have a free midweek but there is a huge game awaiting them next weekend when they host Premier League champions Manchester City at the King Power Stadium.
