Wolves head coach Paul Lambert has told the Express and Star that his Wolves side were outstanding after they got a shock 1-0 win over Leeds United.

Leeds came into this match as the favourites as they looked to cement their place in the Sky Bet Championship places while Wolves were looking to make sure their place in this league was safe, never mind get in the play-offs to get out of them.

But while most would have expected Leeds to get the win, it was in fact Wolves who would get all three points and secure their spot in the Championship for another season. The only goal of the game when Ben Marshall would send a great through ball which cut the Leeds defence apart and Nouha Dicko latched onto it and finished it before goalkeeper Rob Green could even realise what was happening.

And despite being under immense pressure in the second half, Wolves were able to hold out and get the win.

After the game, Lambert said: “It’s huge for us. I thought we started the game really well, it set the whole tone of the game.”

“We were brilliant, we should have been 3-0 up at half time. We took the sting out of the crowd and played really well and looked a threat.”

“Second half, you expect them to come with long balls and second balls. But overall the performance was outstanding. It’s a big win to come here.”

“Maybe the lads were alright but I was under stress! Kortney (Hause) came on with a brilliant clearance. They were getting too many crosses in, so I put Kortney on as an extra defender (five minutes from time). There was a world-class clearance from Kortney.”
