Matt Doherty Scores Again And Celebrates With Touching Gesture

Matt Doherty Scores Again And Celebrates With Touching Gesture

Matt Doherty is currently enjoying some of the best form of his career and, yet again, he found himself on the score sheet at the Molineux Stadium today.

The Irish international was coming up against Irish teammates as Wolves took on a Sheffield United side including John Egan, Enda Stevens, David McGoldrick and Callum Robinson. The Blades scored early with Lys Mousset slotting home, before Doherty levelled proceedings in the 64th minute.

The full-back ventured forward, raced into the box behind McGoldrick and headed home for the second time in a week. It was his celebration, however, that struck a chord.

After scoring, Doherty ran off to celebrate in front of home fans before taking off a black arm-band he was wearing and kissing it. The arm-band, which was worn by the entire Wolves teams, was in tribute to Benik Afobe's two-year-old daughter, Amora, who passed away suddenly on Friday. The striker is a former teammate of Doherty at Wolves.

The game eventually finished 1-1, leaving both sides comfortably within the top half of the table in sixth and seventh place respectively.
