Wolves are through to the fourth round of the FA Cup after beating Sheffield United 3-0 at Molineux.
Bruno Lage’s side saw off the Championship outfit, with Daniel Podence playing a starring role.
The winger is now up to four goals for the season, and his brace was fully deserved for his performance against the Blades.
Wolves actually made a bit of a shaky start.
Of course, there was no Romain Saiss in the backline today, with the star now with Morocco at AFCON.
Jose Sa was also not in the squad with John Ruddy taking up cup duties once again.
Fernando Marcal replaced Saiss on the left of the back three, but only lasted 45 minutes because of injury.
Sheffield United were most threatening in the first 15 minutes or so, and it took a goal from Wolves to settle themselves down.
Fabio Silva provided the through ball for Podence, who took a touch to set himself before firing in at the near post.
In the second-half, the former Olympiacos star sent over a lovely through ball for Rayan Ait-Nouri to run on to.
The Frenchman then crossed low for Nelson Semedo, who made no mistake finishing back across Wes Foderingham.
Podence would grab his second of the match after Foderingham made a complete hash of dealing with a through ball.
Raul Jimenez collected and squad for his teammate who fired in.
Wolves fans react Podence dazzles against Wolves
Podence has been looking very lively in games of late, and he was sensational today against the Blades.
He was a menace, popping up in pockets of space all over the final third.
He linked up fantastically with Silva, who will undoubtedly hope to start again with Podence supporting him.
With Hwang Hee-chan currently on the sidelines, it is important for him to be stepping up to the plate consistently.
Today he showed class at every turn and, hopefully, there will be more performances like this to come from the £17 million star.
Here’s what some fans made of him today:
Podence is just out of this world
