Wolverhampton Wanderers have beaten everyone there is to beat this season.
Wolverhampton Wanderers have confirmed their promotion back to the Premier League, after months of ruling over the Championship with an iron fist. The club will look back on this season as one of their most successful in recent years and, along the way, there have been some important victories that Nuno Espirito Santo’s men have been able to pull off.
From the first whistle in August, Wolves have been on fire. They have only lost a handful of games in the league, and they have managed to completely dismantle many of the sides around them. With that being said, one or two of the wins we are about to list were a bit too close for comfort.
Bristol City 1-2 Wolves – 30 December
It is a game many fans have pointed towards as a turning point, meanwhile others just see it as the continuation of a phenomenal run. At the time Bristol City were still firmly in the running for promotion and, when Bobby Reid put them ahead at Ashton Gate, it seemed like they were in for their biggest win of the season. Alas, it was not to be, as Barry Douglas equalised before Ryan Bennett caused bedlam in the away end with a 94th-minute winner.
Leeds 0-3 Wolves – 7 March
Wolves have not really experienced any extended ‘bad runs’ so far this season, but in March things were looking a bit shaky. After score draws against Preston and Norwich they suffered a convincing 2-0 loss to Fulham, and they needed to bounce back. They managed to do so in a big way at Elland Road with Saiss and Boly opening the scoring before Benik Afobe finally managed to get the return goal he had been waiting for.
Cardiff 0-1 Wolves – 6 April
If Wolves fans wanted a sign that things were going their way, they got it just a few weeks ago when they saw off the challenge of fellow promotion contenders Cardiff City. Ruben Neves put the visitors ahead late in the second half before the Bluebirds astonishingly missed two penalties in the dying minutes of the game. It was shocking, it was surprising, and it all but confirmed Wolves were heading up.
