You know exactly what you are going to get when playing against a Mick McCarthy team.
Strong at the back, difficult to break down, pace on the wings with balls into the box.
For the most part Wolves dealt with this well for a change and got a deserved point from a game which, in truth, was a classic mid-table championship game.
Neither team really did enough to deserve all 3 points, with Ipswich as the home side having the better of the chances to win the game.
The way things have been going recently though, a point away from home is always welcome.
Indeed it showed some spirit and character that had been lacking in recent weeks to come back from a goal down twice.
The manner in which the goals were conceded will be a concern with the first from Douglas coming from him being unmarked in the area and having time to place the shot into the bottom corner.
The 2nd Ikeme being massively out of position after having a rush of blood to the head thinking he could come for a high ball that barely even reached the penalty area.
Once the cross came in it was too late to get across and Murphy was there to convert into an empty net.
Wolves first equaliser came from a knocked down Graham corner where the ball fell to Henry in the 6 yard box who was quickest to react to stab the ball over the line.
The 2nd from a brilliant cross from Le Fondre on the right for Afobe to power in with 15 minutes remaining.
If this seems rather short its because it wasn’t a thrilling game, regardless of what the scoreline suggests.
Price had a decent game as always and Williamson was again a rock at the back but on the opposite side of the coin, Ikeme, Edwards and Batth were just plain bad.
It was only through the introduction of Le Fondre that there seemed to be any life in the team.
Graham showed glimpses of his talent but was either nervous or shackled by tactics meaning he couldn’t open up fully down the left wing.
As mentioned, Batth had a bad game, his distribution was awful and his decision making did not seem to be there either.
Ikeme was worse.
I know this isn’t the done thing to do to have a go at him and Martinez has made mistakes as well, but surely now questions need to start being asked.
As well as the goal he was at fault for even though the TV replays don’t show this as he was out of shot, his distribution was off and he nearly gave another away at 1-0 when Pitman charged down a clearance only for it to go wide.
Saturday will be interesting if Martinez is fit because on the balance of this season alone, he deserves to be back in.
But in doing this the locals will be on at him after any small error as he has displaced the local lad again.
Hopefully it won’t come down to goalkeepers and we are strong enough to beat MK Dons but this is Wolves so you never know.
