Wolves produced an accomplished performance to beat Reading 3-0 last night with right wing-back Matt Doherty popping up with two goals.
The Irishman doubled his tally for the season in the game, scoring the all-important first with his head before rounding off an excellent team move to wrap up the three points in the second half with a composed finish.
That means that three of his four goals this season have come against the Royals after Doherty also scored in the 2-0 win at the Madejski Stadium earlier in the season.
After the disappointment of losing to local rivals Aston Villa on Saturday, it was vital Wolves won but the confident display will have also pleased fans.
With Steve Bruce’s men suffering a surprise defeat at home to QPR it means the league leaders have a ten-point cushion over third place.
Therefore, it’s a good time to be a Wolves fan. And, those supporters were quick to praise Doherty for his role in the win last night…
@mattdoherty20 well done tonight Matt!! Two goals, clean sheet excellent result. Keep it going!!
