    • 90+4' That's it! Wolverhampton Wanderers hit back from 4-1 down to draw 4-4 with Swansea City in the Premier League at the Liberty Stadium. What an afternoon.

    • 90+1' There will be four added minutes here.
    • 89' Moore gets a booking for his troubles. Bit harsh that.

    • 69' What a game. It looked over after five minutes but Wolves have played with an enthusiasm rarely seen this season.

    • 67' Doyle can't keep the ball in and Swansea win the throw. The match is in another slight lull, but you can't blame the players.
    • 66' Graham wants a free-kick and the Swansea fans vent their frustration that nothing is given.
    • 65' Dyer is brought down by a bad tackle from Henry who should really have been booked for that.
    • 62' There have never been more than 11 goals in a single Premier League game. We are on seven at the moment, so work to do.

    • 40' Great run from Stephen Ward who gets to the edge of the area and fires in a shot which is parried by Vorm!

    • 36' Kightly shoots just wide for Wolves who are looking increasingly dangerous in attack.
    • 35' Jarvis almost gets in again but the chance is snuffed out and Wolves have to settle for the corner. Monk did well to get back there.
    • 33' Unbelievable scoreline with 12 minutes still to play. Some of the defending here has left much to be desired.
    • 32' GOAL! SWANSEA 4-2 WOLVES. Doyle crosses deep to the far post where Jarvis controls and cuts in before firing right-footed across goal and into the bottom corner!
    • 30' GOAL! SWANSEA 4-1 WOLVES. Dyer teases and torments the Wolves defence before crossing for Graham who controls and rifles home.
    • 30' Orlandi tries to drift the ball into Graham, but the flag goes up. Orlandi has started really well here.
    • 29' Fletcher had failed to score in his last nine games so that goal ends a personal goal drought.
    • 28' GOAL! SWANSEA 3-1 WOLVES. Doyle crosses from the left and Fletcher rises to place his header superbly beyond Vorm.

    • 24' Orlandi fails to connect properly with his shot and De Vries gathers comfortably.

    • 22' Kightly skews a shot well off targe from Wolves who have shown minor signs of life in the last few minutes.
    • 21' Matthew Jarvis' cross from the left is intercepted by Williams. Great defending.
    • 20' Good turn from Kightly to get away from Britton but his shot is blocked by Ashley Williams.
    • 19' FACT: Wolves are the only team in the Premier League without a goal in the opening 15 minutes of a Premier League game.
    • 17' Graham goes through one-on-one with De Vries after a mistake in the Wolves defence but the goalkeeper keeps his shot out and the ball is cleared.
    • 15' This could be a big scoreline today. Connor looks sheepish down on the touchline.
    • 14' GOAL! SWANSEA 3-0 WOLVES. Orlandi weaves between two defenders down the left before crossing for Nathan Dyer who heads in at the far post.
    • 13' Steven Fletcher has the ball nicked off him by Leon Britton.
    • 12' Orlandi's goal was the fastest goal of the season incidently.
    • 11' Wolves win their first corner of the game as Kightly's cross is deflected away.
    • 9' Swansea are brimming with confidence early on. Wolves have barely had the ball in the Swansea half.
    • 8' Danny Graham tries to play the ball through but the ball is cleared away.
    • 7' This new formation seems to be working pretty well for Swansea!
    • 5' Connor tries to shout instructions to his players but this looks a hopeless task already.
    • 4' GOAL! SWANSEA 2-0 WOLVES. Like a knife through butter. Sigurdsson plays the ball through to Joe Allen who scores via the aid of a deflection!
    • 2' The Italian midfielder scored that goal after just 24 seconds!
    • 1' GOAL! SWANSEA 1-0 WOLVES. Scott Sinclair crosses the ball in from the left and Andrea Orlandi heads beyond Dorus De Vries!
    • 1' We are off and underway at the Liberty Stadium.
    • 14:55 If you want to discuss the game on Twitter, I'll try and be as active as I can. @SCoggin_journo
    • 14:50 STAT: Wolves have won six and lost just one of their last nine games in all competitions against Swansea.
    • 14:45 Terry Connor: “I have no regrets. I've tried to do things properly and as honestly as I can. I have no regrets on that score. You want to win games and it hasn't happened for me. It doesn't mean I have to have regrets about decisions I made. I made them honestly and for the good of Wolves, and as long as I stick to that, that's all I can do.”
    • 14:40 Brendan Rodgers: “He (Terry Connor) has done remarkably well in relation to steadying the ship but unfortunately he hasn't been able to help them stay up, but he is someone who deserves the chance to get the club back up there.”
    • 14:35 Swansea make two changes as Garry Monk and Andrea Orlandi come in to replace Angel Rangel and Neil Taylor in defence. Terry Connor makes one enforced change, with Kevin Doyle replacing David Davis who has an eye injury.
    • 14:30 SWANSEA CITY: Vorm, Monk, Williams, Caulker, Britton, Orlandi, Allen, Sigurdsson, Dyer, Sinclair, Graham.

    • 14:25 Wolves were relegated last weekend after the 2-0 home defeat to Manchester City. Terry Connor’s men produced a stout performance against the title challengers but goals from Sergio Aguero and Samir Nasri condemned them to the Championship.
    • 14:20 Swansea continue to go from strength-to-strength after recovering from a poor run of form and are now unbeaten in three matches. Last weekend they dominated for long periods and were unfortunate not to beat Bolton Wanderers at the Reebok Stadium. It finished 1-1 as Scott Sinclair put the Welsh side ahead, only for Chris Eagles to equalise a few minutes later. Swansea guaranteed themselves another season in the Premier League with that result.
