Wolves secured back-to-back Premier League wins for the first time since October as Illan Meslier’s unfortunate own goal secured a 1-0 victory over Leeds at Molineux.
Meslier had denied the hosts on several occasions during a vibrant opening half but he was left helpless when Adama Traore’s long-rage shot thundered off the crossbar and hit his back to rebound into the net (64).
Patrick Bamford thought he had levelled matters when he converted from Tyler Roberts’ pass but he was denied by the offside flag before Rui Patricio was drawn into action in stoppage time to thwart Helder Costa.
The result moves Wolves above Leeds in the Premier League table as Nuno Espirito Santo’s side rise to 11th ahead of the weekend’s remaining fixtures.
Wolves travel to face Newcastle at St James’ Park on Sky Sports Premier League next Saturday; kick-off 8pm. Leeds host Southampton on Tuesday at Elland Road, live on Sky Sports Premier League; kick-off 6pm.
