Old soldier Lampard rescues AVB..Its Wolves 1 Chelsea 2

Chelsea‘s Frank Lampard scored an 88th minute match winner at Molineux to secure a 2-1 victory and ease the growing pressure on Andre Villas-Boas.A last-gasp strike from Frank Lampard secured a vital three points for the Londoners, the veteran Chelsea midfielder pouncing in the 88th minute just moments after Stephen Ward had equalised for Wolves. The Blues, who were jeered off the pitch after Saturday’s 3-1 reverse to Villa climbed into fourth spot following the victory.

Early second-half goal...

Andre Villas-Boas was without injured strikers Daniel Sturridge (hip) and Didier Drogba (ankle) for the game and also left out defender Paolo Ferreira as he brought back in Fernando Torres, Frank Lampard and Jose Bosingwa to the starting line-up.Despite Chelsea’s early dominance, Wolves nearly took the lead on the half-hour mark, as a Roger Johnson header beat Petr Cech, only to hit the post.The deadlock was eventually broken in the 54th minute, when Ramires put Chelsea in front, holding off Stephen Ward’s challenge before firing the ball into the roof of the net. The players mad rush to the touchline for a group hug with Villas-Boas and some sheepish- looking backroom staff signified loyalty and concern, and by the 84th minute Chelsea needed those qualities. However Wolves finally managed to do them some damage when Jarvis’s cross was played by Fletcher for Ward to equalise.With time running out for Chelsea, Lampard yet again came to their rescue with a late strike that now leaves Wolves just two points above the relegation zone. Ashley Cole was allowed to run down the left and get in the cross for Lampard to hit his shot from 12 yards. Wolves might still have snatched a draw but Petr Cech produced an inspired save in injury-time to push Irish international Kevin Doyle’s header over the bar. This is the  first win in five matches for Chelsea. In other world, Drogba set to leave Chelsea. Drogba, who struck his 150th goal for Chelsea in Saturday’s 3-1 defeat by Aston Villa, is now ready to sign a pre-contract agreement with several clubs.
