MISS OF THE SEASON: Saiss blunder highlights Wolves 0-0 draw with Villa

 

Romain Saiss missed a glorious opportunity to hand Wolverhampton Wanderers victory over local rivals Aston Villa.

A Pedro Neto cross was headed off the post by Conor Coady and fell to Saiss with an open net.

In his defence, the ball did come towards him at speed and he didn't have much time to react.

However, with a gaping goal, he fired over the bar and lay motionless on the ground realising the wasted opportunity.

 

Saiss and Coady with the chances to score

 

Coady would have another chance in the second half when he swiveled with the ball inside the area leaving him one-on-one with Emi Martinez.

The Villa 'keeper would make a good save to prevent the Wolves captain from scoring.

Ollie Watkins arguably had the home side's best chance when he rattled the crossbar from distance in the first half.

A point for Villa leaves them short on their European aspirations as the season enters the business end.

For Wolves, they continue to climb the table and sit 12th with the top half in their sights.
