Many Wolverhampton Wanderers fans are probably waking up with a hangover this morning, after yesterday’s stunning victory over Aston Villa.

Bruno Lage’s side looked down and out at Villa Park, having fallen 2-0 down to goals from Danny Ings and John McGinn.

But Wolves remarkably turned the game on its head with a little over 10 minutes to go.

Romain Saiss and Conor Coady of all people popped up to get Wolves back on level terms.

Ruben Neves then hit the winner from a free-kick that deflected past Emi Martinez.

That winner was undoubtedly the best moment of the season so far for Wolves, who had some bad luck in the first few weeks.


The club are now up to eighth in the table, and have taken 12 points from the last 15 available.

Coming from behind to win like that will do the players the world of good.

Fans can feel much more confident in losing situations from this point on.

After coming from 2-0 down to draw after 90 minutes with Tottenham Hotspur in the Carabao Cup, the players have now truly shown they have the character and the mentality to fight until the end.

There are still a lot of improvements needed, but Lage is definitely doing a decent job.

And it is clear the players all respect him and what he is trying to do.

Few people will forget yesterday in a hurry, and a number of Wolves players have taken to Instagram to document the day:
