Stretching their lead at the top of the Championship to four points, Wolverhampton Wanderers proved that they know how to win ugly. Léo Bonatini’s early goal proved sufficient for them to win their sixth successive game to cement their mantle as title favourites and move 10 points clear of third place.
After recent thrashings of Leeds United and Bolton Wanderers at Molineux, Wolves had to dig a little deeper to see off Steve Cotterill’s side, who stay in the relegation zone. The dismissal of Harlee Dean, for a second yellow card, seven minutes from time after the last in a series of player flare-ups helped give Wolves the advantage that should have seen them over the line.
