Rayan Ait-Nouri crossed from the left, and it was Max Kilman who got his head to it.

He looped a header over Fraser Forster and against the post.

The quickest man to react was Coady, who followed it in with a header of his own.

His moment was almost spoiled by Raul Jimenez, with the Mexican’s run having taken him into the Southampton net.

The ball hit the striker, but goal line technology showed it had easily crossed the line before hitting Jimenez.

Coady wheeled away to celebrate and the fans went wild, for a man who has been waiting a good while to score a league goal in front of his own fans.

That was his second of the current season, after he netted in the comeback win at Villa Park back in October.

Coady has reacted to his reacted to his goal yesterday with an Instagram post.

He wrote: “Waited a long time for that moment in front of the southbank … lads dug deep for a huge win against a top team.”

Several of Coady’s teammates have commented on the post.

Jose Sa, Pedro Neto, Hwang Hee-chan, Nelson Semedo, Daniel Podence, Yerson Mosquera, Luke Cundle and Dion Sanderson all left messages.

It was brilliant to see Coady finally getting on the scoresheet at Molineux in a league game.

He is an absolutely brilliant ambassador for the club, and is probably playing his best football since his arrival back in 2015.

He thoroughly deserved it, and you can tell how much everyone loved it for him.

Sa sprinting the length of the pitch to celebrate said it all.

And everyone commenting on his post just shows how respected he is within that dressing room.
