Wolverhampton Wanderers beat Huddersfield Town 3-0 on a mid-day kickoff at Molineux Stadium. Which now puts Wolves 9th in the table after also beating Fulham on Tuesday night, which also ended up 3-0 to Wolves.

Huddersfield started off the better team when they got a good chance after just six minutes with Mustapha Carayol failing to convert due to a very fine save by in-form keeper Emiliano Martinez. Two minutes later and The Terriers had another chance with Harry Bunn, who fails to hit the target from 18 yards out.

Wolves defence was looking shaky for the first 15 minutes of the game with Huddersfield creating five chances in the first ten minutes of the match. Wolves however did start to pick up the pace on the 16th minute with Sheyi Ojo made a darting run down the wing, winning Wolves a free-kick.

Two minutes later Ojo took a shot from the edge of the box, after good play by James Henry, but fails to score due to a decent save by Huddersfield keeper Jed Steer.

Wolves got the first goal of the day through midfielder Kevin McDonald, who picked up a loose ball, dribbling past a few and curled one in with a great effort.

Wolves didn't stop there, two minutes later they were attacking again with a great run by Henry who hits it slightly too high, and Ojo couldn't get his head to it. The first goal pumped up Wolves, and for the rest of the half they played fast and creative football. Huddersfield, however, did have a good chance right on the stroke of half-time, but Martinez was there again to deny Ishmael Miller and Emyr Huws.

Wolves had a great chance eight minutes into the second half, but Henry didn't get a good enough connection with his header and missed from five yards out.

Jed Steer made what the save of the game, when he pushed a rocket strike by Benik Afobe from 20-yards out around the post.

Afobe came back for revenge though, when Adam le Fondre made a great run on the 66th minute and slid the ball into the path of Benik Afobe, who managed to pass the ball into the net past Steer.

Wolves were having a great game and were looking for more goals, especially in the 68th minute when Adam le Fondre was tripped by goalie Jed Steer who denied the goal scoring opportunity. The ref, however say it differently and booked Le Fondre for diving, to the fans dismay.

Afobe was set to pounce once more, two minutes from time, and he did just that with his composed finish that came from Kevin McDonald's fabulous pass.
