Scholes strike sends United top

Published Add your comment

Paul Scholes claimed his 100th Premier League goal in the 1-0 victory over Wolves which sent Manchester United back to the top of the table.

Scholes struck 17 minutes from time to settle a tense encounter with relegation-threatened Wolves.

The Red Devils laboured badly at times without injured talisman Wayne Rooney, who Sir Alex Ferguson rates as "a big doubt" for Wednesday's Champions League return with AC Milan, and were hugely relieved when Sam Vokes blazed a clear opportunity over in stoppage time.
