Wolves extended their lead ahead of the play-off pack to ten points after a hard-fought 1-0 win over local rivals Birmingham City last night.
Nuno Espirito Santo’s men were in complete control during the first-half and deservedly took the lead through Leo Bonatini.
However, Blues were much more competitive in the second half and whilst John Ruddy didn’t have a save to make, Wolves had to defend well in order to protect their lead.
At the heart of that was Willy Boly, who once again delivered a very assured display from centre-back. The on-loan Porto man was composed on the ball and barely gave the Birmingham forwards a sniff.
It’s the latest quality performance from the imposing Frenchman in a Wolves shirt, who has quickly become a firm favourite with the fans.
Here’s how they reacted to his showing at St. Andrew’s last night…
