Wolves 1-1 Stoke
Carl Cort's last-minute equaliser kept Wolves' slim play-off hopes alive.

He scrambled home from Lee Naylor's free-kick after Gifton Noel-Williams' goal looked set to give Stoke victory.

Stoke took the lead after 49 minutes, Noel-Williams beating Michael Oakes with a fierce drive from inside the area after good work by Clint Hill.

Keeper Steve Simonsen had kept Wolves at bay, saving well from Mark Kennedy, Kenny Miller and Seyi George Olofinjana before Cort rescued a point for Wolves.

  • Stoke boss Tony Pulis:
    "Glenn Hoddle was strong in his programme notes.

    "My players are honest and they don't dive over. Glenn should show more respect," he said.

    "I did not need to motivate my players. Glenn said what he had to say, but I don't talk about other teams."

  • Wolves boss Glenn Hoddle:
    "I was not meaning to be disrespectful to Tony.

    "It's the story of my life. I say something and it's taken the wrong way.

    "It is an honest opinion and if anyone who watched the match can tell me that Stoke play any other way then I would like to hear them."
