Wolves: Max Kilman praised for goal-line clearance

Wolves: Max Kilman praised for goal-line clearance -Premier League News

Wolverhampton Wanderers defender Max Kilman was praised by section of the media for his vital goal-line clearance in the 1-1 draw against Aston Villa on Wednesday night.

The Lowdown: Decent result

Given that Wolves were in the lead for most of the match, with Daniel Podence scoring in the 12th minute, they may be a little disappointed that they were not able to hold onto what would’ve been an important three points on the road.

Danny Ings levelled the match late on and the Old Gold had to settle for a decent point, but the complexion of the game could have been different were it not for a vital goal-line clearance from Kilman when it was still 1-0.

The Latest: Kilman praised

The centre-back managed to head clear a Ludwig Augustinsson strike which looked destined to find the net, earning him some well-deserved praise from several reporters covering the match.

Journalist Liam Keen called the header ‘absolutely unbelievable’, while Matt Maher lauded it as ‘brilliant’, and Nathan Judah told the 25-year-old to ‘take a bow’.

The Verdict: Solid performance

While the defender perhaps could’ve done more to prevent Ings racing through on goal to score the equaliser, on the whole he put in a solid performance, achieving a 7.5 rating from Sofascore, the third-highest of any player to start the match.

The Englishman made 11 clearances to keep Villa at bay, more than any other player, while he also blocked two shots and made three tackles, displaying his defensive capabilities to great effect.

Despite a decent start under Julen Lopetegui, Wolves will still have relegation concerns for the time being, so Kilman could be needed to produce similar heroics in his team’s next Premier League match against West Ham United.
