Wolves beat Leeds United 1-0 at Elland Road courtesy of a deflected second-half strike from Raul Jimenez.
It was a game a few clear-cut chances, with both defences particularly strong across the 90 minutes.
For Wolves it was a really poor first-half, with Jimenez not getting a sniff as Leeds made service into the Mexican difficult.
Daniel Podence had a shot from inside the box right on half-time which was well saved by Ilan Meslier.
Wolves improved in the second half with Podence and Pedro Neto especially lively, but much like the first-half, real, clear-cut chances were in short supply.
Thankfully Jimenez then came alive with 20 minutes to go, fashioning a chance for himself to score after good work down the right side. His strike took a huge deflection off Kalvin Phillips that left Meslier completely helpless.
It was probably a lucky three points for the visitors, but Nuno will be delighted with the way his side defended and the fact the team are now up to sixth in the table.
One man who was outstanding from start to finish was Max Kilman, in for his second start in a row.
The 23-year-old was a rock operating as the left-sided centre-half, throwing himself in front of Leeds shots and heading balls clear all night.
The star won five out of five duels, made eight clearances and won possession eight times. He also technically provided the assist for Jimenez’s goal.
Given his personal display, it’d be extremely harsh of Nuno to demote him back to the bench against Newcastle United at the weekend.
Fans lavished praise on the faultless Englishman on social media:
kilman is so so good

I’m impressed with #wwfc. Defensively very solid. Coady and Kilman have been brilliant.

As it turns out, Max Kilman is the CB we all wanted to sign in the summer. What a stonker of a game this young lad is having. Looks very confident. Not a foot wrong all evening.
