Iorfa impresses in Wolves victory

Wolverhampton Wanderers defender, Dominic Iorfa, showed his utility prowess impressing in an unfamiliar right full back role as they beat Watford 1-0.

Traditionally a center back, the 19-year-old didn’t appear out of place at right back away at Vicarage road, showing tremendous pace and tackling ability not expected from a player of his height.

The son of former Nigeria International, Dominic Iorfa, helped snuff out the threat of Watford pacy winger Ikechi Anya winning almost all of his duels with the Scottish International of Nigerian parentage.

Iorfa was also neat in possession and covered up well for his central defenders when the need arises and earned a mention from the club’s twitter handle for his all round contribution.

Also in the Wolves team at Vicarage road goalkeeper, Carl Ikeme eligible for Nigeria, produced top quality save to keep Watford at bay further enhancing his reputation as one of the best shot-stoppers in the Championship.

Ikeme produced a punch save taking it to the post off a deflected shot from former Nigeria under-20 captain Odion Ighalo, denying him an opportunity to level things up for Watford.

The 27-year-old shot stopper has already picked up three Man of The Match award this season for Wolves and even though he was beaten to the award this time around, he did his bit when required to help pick up all three points.
