If Wolves control their five remaining opponents in the same dominant fashion as this victory, promotion and the League One title are a formality.
But it seems unlikely that Crewe, Rotherham, Leyton Orient, Coventry and Carlisle will roll over quite as readily as Peterborough did yesterday.
Sure, Fergie’s side were compact and well organised for 45 minutes, but after Danny Batth powered the home side ahead, victory never looked in doubt.
Unusually for Posh, they were toothless in attack and rarely threatened to deny Wolves a record equaling 23rd cleansheet of the season.
Free scoring Britt Assombalonga cut an isolated figure throughout and got little change out of Wolves’ dominant centre-half pairing.
Dave Edwards’ decisive second goal, scuffing home from a typically bullet-like Sako free-kick, killed the contest, allowing Wolves to shift down through the gears in the final 20 minutes.
In fact it was only after Sako’s overly enthusiastic penalty cannoned off the top of the bar that Boro showed any sort of menace.
Carl Ikeme’s flying save from a well-struck thirty yarder ensured a ten minute spell of pressure petered out to nothing.
His opposite number Bobby Olejnik had by this time denied Wolves a more resounding victory with elastic saves from Ricketts, Dicko and Sako.
Fortunately, goal difference doesn’t look like being a decisive factor with Wolves now 20 better off than Brentford and Rotherham. It’s effectively another point.
The only minor blotch on another highly satisfying Saturday was the useful wins our closest rivals collected.
But with a comfortable points cushion and Wolves showing few signs of stuttering in the home straight, what the other sides do remains immaterial.
It’s all in our hands.
