‘You are world class’ – Wolves fans react to player’s latest display against Reading



Wolves took a huge step towards regaining their top-flight status with a comfortable 3-0 win at home to Reading last night.

A Matt Doherty brace either side of Benik Afobe’s strike gave them all three points at Molineux and a ten point cushion in the automatic promotion spots, with nine games left to play.

Forward Ivan Cavaleiro took to Twitter to celebrate the win, claiming in was ‘massive’ for Wolves. It might just be a pivotal moment in the race for Premier League, especially after Aston Villa’s defeat against QPR.

Former Benfica and Monaco player Cavaleiro joined for a then club-record fee in August 2016 and has since made 71 appearances, scoring 13 times. He started last night on the bench, but came on after 25 minutes for the injured Diogo Jota. He’s bagged eight in 40 outings this season.

It was only Wolves second win in six matches, but it redressed the balance after losing 4-1 to rivals Villa at the weekend. It’s a case of ‘as you were’ after last night’s results.

Fans reacted to Cavaleiro’s message on Twitter, praising him, the side and their promotion aspirations as they got back to winning ways.
