Roy Keane has predicted ‘good days ahead’ and a ‘brilliant end to the season’ for Wolves, after the club beat Leicester City 2-1 at Molineux.
Wanderers are up to seventh in the table after a brilliant result, moving Tottenham Hotspur back down a place.
Bruno Lage’s side had to dig deep, but managed to get the job done and demonstrate an impressive mentality.
Ruben Neves got the balling rolling for the hosts, but Ademola Lookman hit back just before half-time after a great pass from Youri Tielemans to get Marc Albrighton in behind.
But Daniel Podence popped up in the second-half to get Wolves back in front with a great strike from the edge of the box.
That goal came against the run of play, and then there was some excellent defending on show, as has become so commonplace at Wolves this season.
It is a huge result, and important after Manchester United and Arsenal also both won this weekend.
Another big positive from the day was the return of Pedro Neto for Wanderers.
He replaced Podence late on to a standing ovation after 10 months on the sidelines.
Sky pundit Roy Keane noted the winger’s return in his post-match analysis, and gave his verdict on how Wolves are looking.
He said: “Leicester came and had a right go. Obviously they were missing players, but it’s job done. I think they’re set up for a brilliant end to the season, I really do.
“It wasn’t pretty today. They’re sometimes not great on the eye. They don’t score that many goals. But they don’t give away many and they’ve got a bit of momentum now into their season.
“They’ve got no distractions, these players coming back in. The strength off the bench, a bit of pace, they’ve got a bit of everything. Yeah, good days ahead for Wolves.”
Wolves victory over Leicester was absolutely huge
Wolves beating Leicester in the manner they did was huge.
To not play particularly well and still come away with three points just shows a changing mentality at Molineux.
With players coming back into the fold, these are definitely exciting times.
Lage is doing a simply fantastic job, and securing European football would be a truly phenomenal achievement after his first season.
