Ruben Neves has congratulated his Wolverhampton Wanderers team-mates on another fine win last night.

Wolves took another step closer to Premier League promotion by thumping out-of-form Reading 3-0 at Molineux on Tuesday night.

Two goals from Matt Doherty, either side of one from Benik Afobe, gave Nuno's side a comfortable victory and one which has kept them three points ahead of second-placed Cardiff City.

But 20-year-old midfielder Neves, who has started 34 Championship games this season, deserves plenty of praise for yet another brilliant performance.

The Portuguese starlet has been nothing short of outstanding since his £15 million switch from Porto last summer and Wovles fans were quick to voice their appreciation for him in responding to a post-match tweet.

Wolves have a 10-point cushion from third-placed Aston Villa and it would be a huge shock if Nuno's troops did not secure automatic promotion to the top flight.
