Wolves enjoyed a Good Friday to remember as they regained their five-point lead at the top of the Coca-Cola Championship with a convincing 3-0 victory over troubled Southampton.

Mick McCarthy's charges had the game wrapped up with just 19 minutes on the clock as they raced into a 3-0 lead, and had further chances to add to their tally in a comfortable afternoon.

Sam Vokes headed home the opener inside the first minute - his first goal in nine games - before defender Jody Craddock got in on the act shortly after, rising unchallenged to nod in a right-wing corner before Dave Jones completed the rout.

Jones added a third from the penalty spot to plunge Saints - who are confident of avoiding a 10-point penalty after parent company Southampton Leisure Holdings went into administration - further into the relegation mire.

Marek Saganowski, who bagged a hat-trick at Molineux in Saints' 6-0 success in 2007, brought down David Edwards and Jones found the roof of the net with his spot-kick.

It was Wolves who came closest to adding to their tally after the break with Vokes, Andy Keogh and substitute Marlon Harewood - making his home debut - all going close.
