    SPEECH ON FILM (TRANSCRIPT)



    HAMILTON: "Wolves -- playing from right to left -- won through the semi-finals of the FA Cup in mid-week. Today, they were in complete control of the first half, and should have established an early lead. Andy Gray -- chasing a through ball -- was brought down by Downs. A clear penalty.



    "But to the relief of Norwich's new keeper, Chris Woods, Clark's spot-kick cannoned back into play off the post.



    "Norwich, though, were soon in trouble again. Richards set up the attack and when the ball was floated into the box, it fell to Palmer... this time there was no mistake.



    "Four minutes into the second half, and Wolves struck again. Richards flicked the ball onto Eves, and as the winger's shot sped to the goal. Richards himself got the final touch.



    "Norwich had just one chance to get back into the game. But Fashinu's fine effort from McGuire's free-kick was brilliantly palmed away by Bradshaw.
