Ex-Wolves player Mel Eves sat down for an exclusive interview with the Express & Star, and raved about the football currently on display at Molineux, but did offer his former side a word of caution with regard to their promotion hopes.

The Black Country outfit have been sensational so far this season, and currently sit comfortably at the top of the Championship table, two points clear of second placed Sheffield United.

Nuno Espirito Santo deserves great credit for the manner in which he has galvanised his troops, following their disappointing campaign last season, and transformed them into a team who look like they fully believe in their ability to gain promotion to the Premier League.

And Eves, who made 180 league appearances for Wolves, waxed lyrical about his former side, when speaking exclusively to the Express & Star, although he did point out something that could be problematic for them:

“The football they are playing is some of the best I have seen at Wolves for many years, there is a real feel-good factor around the club at the moment and it is great to see. The team have set a high standard and the most important thing now is keeping it, making sure they are doing the right things week-in, week-out. I firmly believe the only thing that can stop Wolves winning the Championship this season is Wolves themselves."
