Manager reaction

Wolves 2-0 Derby

Derby boss Steve McClaren: "Everyone saw the incident, (Danny Batth on Darren Bent) but it is gone. We were playing ever so well but that means nothing at this stage of the season, it is about getting results.

"The decisions today, I have to be careful what I say.

"We have peppered their goal, we have hit the woodwork but not defended well at our end. I am just sorry for the players who lost the game."

GOAL FOR VALENCIA

Spanish La Liga

Third-placed Valencia are four points clear of Atletico Madrid in the La Liga table after a 4-0 win at Elche. Rumoured Manchester United target Nicolas Otamendi scored their fourth in the final minute.

Manager reaction

Wolves 2-0 Derby

Wolves manager Kenny Jackett tells Sky Sports: "We were good in possession and we did well to overcome them tonight. We did not worry about Derby too much ahead of the match.

"The board have been very supportive of myself, especially in signing Benik Afobe, as long as it is young players who can do well for us.

"Nouha Dicko did have a look at me when i took him off but I understand that. We were being overrun which is why I brought David Edwards on."

FULL-TIME

Wolves 2-0 Derby

A jubilant Bakary Sako of Wolves tells Sky Sports: "This is important for us. We can be in the top six so it is a very good win. Sometimes you have to be lucky to get some goals and today we were.

"We are in a very good way and we are going to keep working hard to reach the Premier League."

FULL-TIME

Wolves 2-0 Derby

And there goes the final whistle. Wolves come out victors and move up to seventh in the table.

Wolves 2-0 Derby

Bakary Sako, past one, two, three and more Derby defenders before blazing a shot high over the bar. That would have been the cherry on the icing.

Wolves 2-0 Derby

Rajiv van La Parre with a superb run, taking the ball from inside his half to gain a free-kick deep inside the Derby half. Kenny Jackett leads the applause, he appreciated that effort from the Dutchman. One minute left...

Wolves 2-0 Derby

Wolves boss Kenny Jackett is pacing up and down his technical area. He is pumped up, still gesturing his players to do this and that. They are nearly there..

Wolves 2-0 Derby

Four minutes more agony for Derby to endure...

SUBSTITUTION

Wolves 2-0 Derby

Frustration from Simon Dawkins who petulantly trips a Wolves man. Benik Afobe is coming off and Kevin Doyle is coming on. Remember him?

CLOSE!

Wolves 2-0 Derby

It's Darren Bent!! But no! The on-loan Aston Villa man pokes a shot goalwards but it is superbly blocked by Richard Stearman. It's not going to happen for Derby tonight.

Wolves 2-0 Derby

Four minutes for Wolves to hold on, four minutes for Derby to rescue an effort to gain automatic promotion spot. Remember, they lost in the play-off final to QPR last season. They won't want to go into the play-offs again.

Wolves 2-0 Derby

...a free-kick which is wasted by Craig Bryson. High over Tomasz Kuszczak's crossbar. Steve McClaren can't bear to look. That was rather bad.

Wolves 2-0 Derby

The worrying thing for Derby fans is that there does not seem to be a Plan B. They continue to pass the ball around, maybe it needs to be pumped longer to put the Wolves defence under more pressure? They have a free-kick deep inside the Wolves half...

Wolves 2-0 Derby

Another long-range effort from Jesse Lingard, another easy save for Tomasz Kuszczak. He will eat those up all night long, much like he will his birthday cake later tonight.

European update

Zlatan Ibrahimovic

Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored a hat-trick for Paris St-Germain as they beat Lorient 3-1 to return to the top of Ligue 1. His third came in injury time after being allowed time and space in the box after two penalties.

In the Bundesliga, Hertha Berlin beat 10-man Hamburg 1-0 thanks to Sebastian Langkamp's 84th-minute goal.

Valencia are easing to victory at Elche in La Liga, leading 3-0 with about 10 minutes left.

Wolves 2-0 Derby

Derby have been left to striking from distance and that is comfortable for Tomasz Kuszczak. He gathers a Simon Dawkins strike and a few more seconds tick away for the home side.

Wolves 2-0 Derby

BBC Sport's Ged Scott at Molineux

"Having wasted as many chances as they did before the break, Derby have truly been masters of their own downfall in the way they conceded two second-half goals.

"Expect Steve McClaren's post-match comments to concentrate on the quality, or lack of it, of his side's defending."

Wolves 2-0 Derby

Free-kick swung in by Craig Bryson, and again, Tomasz Kuszczak punches the ball away. He has done that well in this game, getting distance on the bal to relieve the pressure.

Steve McClaren is like a yo-yo now down on the touchline for the rest of the match. What can his side salvage from this game? This will make is six without a win.

Wolves 2-0 Derby

In the aftermath of the goal, Simon Dawkins was sent on by Steve McClaren to replace Derby forward Johnny Russell. Half a chance for striker Darren Bent who flicks a header wide.

Wolves 2-0 Derby

A low drive from Jesse Lingard, kept out again - unconvincingly - by the birthday boy Tomasz Kuszczak. When your luck is in, it is well and truly in. Derby continue to plough forward though...

Wolves 2-0 Derby

Wolves fans signing "There's only one Kenny Jackett". The boss acknowledges the support with an applause back to them. Wolves came up from League One last season. Can they gatecrash the promotion party and get back into the Premier League?

GOAL TO PSG

French Ligue 1

It's Zlatan Ibrahimovic 2-1 Lorient in Ligue 1 as Paris St-Germain look set to go top. The Swedish striker scores his second penalty, this time after a Lamine Kone tackle on Javier Pastore.

Hamburg have to play the last 10 minutes of their Bundesliga game against relegation rivals Hertha Berlin with 10 men after Cleber was sent off.

Wolves 2-0 Derby

Twenty minutes to go, Derby's automatic promotion hopes are slipping away, much like the ball did from Lee Grant's hands moments ago..

GOAL

Wolves 2-0 Derby - Lee Grant og

Absolute howler from Lee Grant! Shocking moment for the Derby goalkeeper. Defender Richard Keogh's attempted clearance loops high into the Wolverhampton sky, Grant's eyes are on the ball. It drops back down to Earth, and in trying to punch it away, he only manages to push the ball into his own net. Horrific stuff!

SUBSTITUTION

Wolves 1-0 Derby

Second change for Wolves. James Henry, who had a decent game, comes off for Dutchman Rajiv van La Parre. His first involvement is to earn a free-kick in the Derby half.

Wolves 1-0 Derby

Pass, pass, pass from Derby. They are being patient in and around the Wolves penalty area, but the home side's backline is holding firm so far.

SUBSTITUTION

Wolves 1-0 Derby

First change of the game and it is for Wolves. Dave Edwards comes on for goalscorer Nouha Dicko. He doesn't look to be injured. Seems like a tactical one.

Wolves 1-0 Derby

This match is being played at a frantic pace, like a basketball game. One end to the other in a split second. Great entertainment. Derby need a goal though...

GOAL FOR LORIENT

French Ligue 1

Jordan Ayew

Paris St-Germain have been utterly dominant against Lorient, pulling off plenty of tricks but forgot to score a second goal... and now Lorient are level. Jordan Ayew fired home a crisp effort from 20 yards from Benjamin Jeannot's layoff.

Moments later Ayew almost scores a second but Marco Verratti heads off the line.

About 20 minutes left or else PSG will remain second.

Valencia now lead Elche 2-0, with Paco Alcacer doubling their lead. Hamburg v Hertha Berlin is still goalless.

Wolves 1-0 Derby

Another chance for Derby, they have responded superbly to going a goal down. Darren Bent pokes at a low ball into the box but it is blocked by former Leicester man Richard Stearman. I can't catch my breath here.

HITS THE WOODWORK

Wolves 1-0 Derby

Unbelievable stuff! A long punt upfield from Wolves sees Benik Afobe through on the Derby goal. His pace sees him go clear and smacks a shot which clips the bar and goes over. That should have been the second for Wolves. What a match!

Wolves 1-0 Derby

Desperate defending from Wolves, who are stretching and prodding at every ball into the box. The Molineux crowd have gone quiet...

HITS THE WOODWORK

Wolves 1-0 Derby

All Derby now, and they are so, so close to the leveller! Craig Bryson drives forward and a daisycutter strikes the post. They've had more efforts on goal, but still have not found a way through.

Wolves 1-0 Derby

Jesse Lingard hits one from the edge of the area, it is straight at Tomasz Kuszczak who makes a bit of a hash of saving it, but the Wolves defenders are able to clear.

Pressure from the visitors.
