Given the circumstances, this must go down as the most impressive victory of the season.
Sure, Leeds were dire but Wolves exploited that weakness to the maximum and controlled the entire game.
If there were jitters after a series of results that saw the hunting pack pick up the trail it was only evident through wasteful finishing in a first half that could have yielded several more goals than the two that were eventually registered.
Quite how Diogo Jota left Elland Road without scoring is still anyones guess. Another horror miss was so nearly wiped from the memory with that sizzling strike that thundered back off the bar but his all round game was certainly much improved.
Similar can be said of Bonatini. No goals – again – but impressive link up play that contributed to a really slick team performance.
Indeed, Benik Afobe, who did find the net with the type of pacy run in behind we’ve been lacking, said afterwards that the gaffer is all about ‘shape’ and ‘the team’ and never has that been more evident than here.
This was reminiscent of the early season form, dominating the ball and zipping it around while the opposition feebly attempt to work out what’s going on.
It was also a timely reminder, just when it was needed, of why this side find themselves in such a preferable position coming around the final bend.
Ruben Neves will be back for the last big push and assuming his automatic inclusion at the weekend, one of Romain Saiss and Alfred N’Diaye are about to suffer some grave misfortune.
They were both excellent last night and made consistent contributions in both boxes as Wolves took sole ownership of the midfield.
Danny Batth was back in at the expense of the similarly unfortunate Ryan Bennett and made a solid contribution.
Sure the odd aimless hoof down field looks painfully out of place surrounded by such esteemed company, but he dealt with everything without the ball and assisted the pivotal second goal.
Willy Boly scored it and along with Coady, Doherty and Douglas (who deserves special mention for consistently reliable set piece delivery) made John Ruddy redundant as the keeper collected yet another cleansheet.
It’s onto Villa Park and the opportunity, particularly in this type of form, to put one foot in the Premier League.
Bring it on.
