Wolves beat Palace to move away from danger

Wolves moved away from relegation danger and level with Crystal Palace following a tense 2-0 win over the Eagles at Molineux.

Ruben Neves' right-wing corner ricocheted into the net off the legs of Palace defender Joachim Andersen early in the game and the Wolves captain sealed the win from the penalty spot in stoppage-time after Sam Johnstone's foul on Pedro Neto.

The in-form away side pushed for an equaliser for long periods of the second half with Eberechi Eze twice going close as nerves jangled inside Molineux. But some desperate defending was enough for Wolves to cling on, the pressure lifted late on by the penalty.

The victory, a third in four games for the team that were bottom of the Premier League table at Christmas when Julen Lopetegui took charge, moves Wolves up one place to 13th. More significantly, it takes them well clear of the relegation zone.
