Mo­lineux maul­ing keeps ri­vals from Wolves’door

Sunday Sun - - Football -

WOLVES show no sign of let­ting up at the top of the ta­ble af­ter dis­patch­ing Bolton 5-1.

Fresh from a 4-1 win over Leeds, Willy Boly, Leo Bona­tini, Ivan Cavaleiro (two, one pen) and Diogo Jota all scored for the ram­pant Mo­lineux men. Will Buck­ley net­ted Bolton’s con­so­la­tion.

In-form As­ton Villa won again, see­ing off Ip­swich 2-0 to keep in the au­to­matic pro­mo­tion hunt.

Al­bert Adomah was their match­win­ner once more, tak­ing his tally to five in three games with one ei­ther side of the break.

Leeds bounced back from their mid­week loss at Wolves to win at Barns­ley – one of their bo­gey grounds.

United are reg­u­larly beaten at Oak­well but bucked the trend to­day, Sa­muel Saiz and Gjanni Alioski scor­ing first-half goals in a 2-0 win.

Nor­wich’s win­less run ex­tended to seven as Pre­ston, led by for­mer City boss Alex Neil, came back to draw 1-1.

James Mad­di­son put Nor­wich ahead but Tom Barkhuizen replied.

The pres­sure re­mains firmly on Hull boss Leonid Slut­sky af­ter they squan­dered a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2 at home to Bristol City.

With­out a win in five, Hull looked to be do­ing the job as Fraizer Camp­bell and top-scorer Jar­rod Bowen put them in an ap­par­ently safe po­si­tion.

But Aden Flint and Bobby Reid got Bristol City back in it and Josh Brown­hill won it with a minute to go.

Oliver Nor­wood’s penalty saw Ful­ham beat Mill­wall 1-0 and Read­ing drew 0-0 with Sh­effield Wed­nes­day.

In the late kick-off, Sh­effield United lost ground on lead­ers Wolves when they were held to a 1-1 draw at home to Birm­ing­ham.

Leon Clarke scored his ninth goal in four games for the Blades to level the score af­ter Chelsea loa­nee Jeremie Boga opened his Blues ac­count with a 25-yard strike in the 38th minute. Diogo Jota scores Wolves’ fifth goal
