    FT: Wolves 2-0 Aston Villa

    Mel Eves

    Former Wolves forward on BBC WM

    That was thoroughly deserved. This is a game we were all really anticipating. It promised to be a mouthwatering prospect for both teams

    For Villa, off the back of four wins, this was a massive test for them as well as Wolves.

    They will be disappointed, but I can guarantee Villa fans that this is the best 90 minutes from Wolves all season. Overall they have been very convincing.

    FT: Wolves 2-0 Aston Villa

    Wolves fully deserved that win, having dominated much of the game, as you can see from the match statistics below.

    Manager Nuno Espirito Santo has got the hosts playing some brilliant football, and the former Valencia and Porto boss has guided the club to the top of the table, two points clear of second-placed Cardiff.

    Quote Message: We've had some great nights here in the past and at the moment everybody is with us. The boys have been outstanding and hopefully that can continue. It is not about making a statement - it is about improving all the time. At the moment we are doing that, but it is about taking one game at the time from Conor Coady Wolves defender on Sky Sports

  12. Relief for Bolton boss Parkinson

    FT: Bolton 2-1 Sheffield Wednesday

    Phil Parkinson

    Bolton Wanderers manager Phil Parkinson told BBC Radio Manchester:

    "As the clock was ticking, I was just staring at the referee thinking 'come on, blow that whistle'.

    "I was just so pleased when he did. I'm relieved for myself because it has been tough and pleased for everybody, it was a great win for us. Sheffield Wednesday are one of the fancied teams, and you expect them to be up there with the array of talent they have got.

    "We have shown today, as we have in other games, that we can create chances. We have done that again today, the difference is that a couple have ended up in the back of the net."

    Wolves 2-0 Aston Villa

    Mel Eves

    Former Wolves forward on BBC WM

    It is a belief now that Wolves have a real chance to carry on this form and stay at the top of this league.

    They have set a marker down; Villa were a big, big game for them today.

    Wolves have really shown their class and have shown Villa that they are just a little short at the moment.

    Leo Bonatini
  16. Villa hit the bar

    Wolves 2-0 Aston Villa

    Robert Snodgrass decides to take the free-kick himself from about 20 yards out.

    BBC Sport at Molineux

    Wolves fans are now certainly making the most of having the bragging rights as the volume is turned up to 11 inside Molineux.

    Not only are their team beating one of their biggest rivals, they can also brag about being top of the league.

    Diogo Jota
  20. GREAT SAVE!

    Wolves 2-0 Aston Villa

    Incredible double save by Villa keeper Sam Johnstone.

    The oles are out from the Wolves fans and a passing move culminates with Diego Jota's header being stopped on the line by the keeper.

    The ball falls to Leo Bonatini five yards out and he pokes the ball goalwards. Somehow it is straight into the body of Johnstone and he blocks it.

    Villa clear the danger.
