Kenny Jackett’s side returned to winning ways in the Championship with a narrow triumph over the Royals at Molineux.
James Henry’s goal in the 18th minute proved to be the difference between the two sides.
Good result this evening, wasn't pretty at times. But sometimes just need to dig in and thought the lads done that. Thank u for u support— Carl Ikeme (@Carl_Ikeme) December 26, 2015
