Former Wolverhampton Wanderers players Karl Henry and Stephen Elliot reacted to the club’s scintillating comeback victory against Aston Villa.

Wolves were 2-0 down in the 80th minute before coming back to win 3-2.

It led to Henry, who captained Wolves between 2008 and 2011, to describe the victory as ‘unbelievable’ on Twitter.

Stephen Elliot, who endured a less fruitful spell at Molineux, also thoroughly enjoyed the comeback.

On Twitter, the ex-Republic of Ireland international replied to his former teammate Henry, describing the win as unbelievable.

Victory means Wolves can aim high

Today’s win at Villa Park placed Wolves eighth in the Premier League table.

Five weeks ago, such an outcome seemed unlikely after Wolves had lost their opening three games.

However, with three wins in a row and four out of their past five, Wolves could seriously clock up some points in the league.

Next up is Leeds United, and Wolves should be confident because the Whites have only won one league game this season.

 

Wolves will then host Everton at Molineux. With the Toffees making a good start also, that game could be a great indicator into the team’s prospects for the season.

It marks a great start for Bruno Lage, who was widely praised despite Wolves’ difficult August.

Encouragingly, the manager also has an excellent history with his teams going on winning runs.

In his spell as Benfica manager, his side went on an eight game winning run as he guided them to a league title.

It is just three so far for Wolves, but another victory over Leeds will surely leave fans purring.
