  1. Goodbye from Molineux

    FT: Wolves 3-0 Huddersfield

    Thank you for your company this afternoon.

    If you missed any of the action from the early Championship game today, you can read Ged Scott's match report where there will also be more reaction from both managers.

    Enjoy the rest of your Saturday.

  2. FT: Wolves 3-0 Huddersfield

    Wolves temporarily move up to sixth in the Championship play-off places ahead of the other games today.

    Huddersfield's three-game unbeaten run comes to an end and they lie 16th for now.

  3. FT: Wolves 3-0 Huddersfield

    Wolves striker Benik Afobe told Sky Sports:

    "As an attacking player you always want to score goals.

    "Ive been doing fisnihing after training and luckily it fell to me today and I was able to put them in.

    "To get three goals today and on Tuesday against Fulham is a massive thing and we wanted to build on this with the international break coming up."

  4. FT: Wolves 3-0 Huddersfield

    Wolves midfielder Kevin McDonald told Sky Sports:

    "To be honest with you I thought the keeper saved my goal and it and it went out for the corner.

    "Luckilyenough it went in and I'm deligthed to get us going

    On his recently signed new contract: "I'm over the moon to sign a contact and thankfully everyone worked hard and it is sorted now.

  5. FULL-TIME

    Wolves 3-0 Huddersfield

    Afobe scores Wolves' third goal

    For the first time since 1988, Wolves get the better of Huddersfield on home soil.

    Kevin McDonald's super curling strike was in a first-half with few highs, but Wolves were dominant after the break and Benik Afobe's two goals secured the win.

    Afobe was not even born the last time Wolves beat the Terriers at Molineux!

  6. YELLOW CARD

    Wolves 3-0 Huddersfield

    Dean Whitehead gets a booking in the closing stages for a slightly rash challenge. 

    Wolves play the ball into the corner looking to waste a few seconds.

  7. INJURY TIME

    Wolves 3-0 Huddersfield

    We're going to have three more minutes at Molineux.

  8. Wolves 3-0 Huddersfield

    Captain Dean Whitehead is still giving everything to the Huddersfield cause as he exchanges some words with Wolves boss Kenny Jackett. 

    The referee has a word with Jackett and we're back on with the final few minutes of football.

  9. GOAL (Afobe)

    Wolves 3-0 Huddersfield

    Le Fondre and Afobe celebrate

    And that will seal three points if they were ever in doubt. 

    A hopeful ball forward by first goalscorer Kevin McDonald finds a sprinting Benik Afobe who touches it away from the defence and is composed to finish in the bottom corner.

    Kenny Jackett's side heading for back-to-back league wins for the first time this season.

  10. SUBSTITUTION

    Wolves 2-0 Huddersfield

    The hosts use up their final change as Matt Doherty replaces winger James Henry, who has had an impressive second half.

  11. Wolves 2-0 Huddersfield

    Benik Afobe very nearly setting himself up for a second as he powers into the area, but some last gasp defending denies him getting a short away.

  12. Wolves 2-0 Huddersfield

    Ged Scott

    BBC Sport at Molineux

    "The threat of getting the hook clearly did do the trick for Afobe as Adam Le Fondre set up his fifth goal of the season.

    "Le Fondre then should have netted himself, but for an astonishing decision by the ref, who turns down a 'stone waller' of a penalty.

    "You see some bad decisions made by officials week in, week out and it's so much easier to referee a game from the stand, but it did not need any TV slow motion replay to decide on this one."

  13. SUBSTITUTION

    Wolves 2-0 Huddersfield

    Dave Edwards was going to be part of a double Wolves substitution earlier, but now the midfielder gets his chance.

    He comes on for Adam Le Fondre with Benik Afobe leading the line on his own now.

  14. GREAT SAVE!

    Wolves 2-0 Huddersfield

    The changes almost have an immediate effect.

    Best opportunity of the second-half for Huddersfield as Nahki Wells' strike forces a full strech Emiliano Martinez to push the ball away.

  15. SUBSTITUTION

    Wolves 2-0 Huddersfield

    Chris Powell uses up all his substitute options by bringing on Jonathan Hogg for Emyr Hughes and Jamie Paterson replaces Harry Bunn. 

    What can they create in this final 10 minutes?

  16. Wolves 2-0 Huddersfield

    Daz Hale

    BBC WM at Molineux

    Benik Afobe celebrates

    “It’s been a good second half performance from Wolves.

    "They’ve gone up a gear and taken the game to Huddersfield. It took them a long time to get that second goal – they’ve been a little bit wasteful at times but what they have to do now is be professional and see the game out”

  17. Wolves 2-0 Huddersfield

    Nahki Wells getting into a decent position inside the Wolves area but he is unable to work anything and the hosts begin knocking the ball around again.

  18. Wolves 2-0 Huddersfield

    Wolves keeping possession deep in the Huddersfield half and the visitors are struggling to get out. 

    Jack Price intercepts and drives towards goal but his long range effort is easily gathered into the chest of Jed Steer.

  19. Wolves 2-0 Huddersfield

    Hause and Bunn challenge

    Wolves fans not happy with the referee Chris Kavanagh there.

    First a high foot from Dean Whitehead goes unpunished, then he gets in the way of an attempted through ball.

    Nahki Wells effort on the turn is the one of few Huddersfield have managed to carve out this half.

  20. CLOSE!

    Wolves 2-0 Huddersfield

    James Henry has really looked in the mood in this second-half.

    The winger curls a beauty of a free-kick towards goal from 25 yards out, but it is just past the right post.

    A minute later, he works himself past a couple of defenders but his chipped effort over the keeper drifts over.

  21. YELLOW CARD

    Wolves 2-0 Huddersfield

    Jack Price is next in the book for Wolves for a poorly-timed challenge on the halfway line.

  22. YELLOW CARD

    Wolves 2-0 Huddersfield

    This is controversial. 

    A sloppy back pass by Huddersfield lays in Adam Le Fondre and as he attempts to round Jed Steer he appears to be brough down for a clear penalty.

    The referee sees it differently though, saying the striker was looking for it by leaving his leg dangling and he is booked.

  23. GOAL (Afobe)

    Wolves 2-0 Huddersfield

    Benik Afobe doubles Wolves lead

    The four-game goal drought is over. 

    A ball over the top finds Adam Le Fondre who looks up from the left side of the area and he lays it onto a plate for his strike partner Benik Afobe.

    His fifth goal of the season and 50th in his career.

  24. Wolves 1-0 Huddersfield

    Dominic Iorfa challenged by Harry Bunn

    The corner comes to nothing. 

    Wolves though build again though and it is that man Dominic Iorfa who delivers from the right. He's enjoying the freedom of the right wing at the moment.

  25. CLOSE!

    Wolves 1-0 Huddersfield

    Surely it is a matter of if, not when, for a second Wolves goal? 

    Another Dominic Iorfa cross into the box finds Adam Le Fondre and his touch is turned around the post by a defender for a corner...

  26. SUBSTITUTION

    Wolves 1-0 Huddersfield

    Substitution now made by Kenny Jackett. 

    Sheyi Ojo is replaced by Nathan Byrne, the man who he replaced in the starting line-up today.

  27. GREAT SAVE!

    Wolves 1-0 Huddersfield

    Superb, vicious curling strike by Benik Afobe from the edge of the area and Jed Steer had to have strong wrists to turn the ball wide. 

    Wolves completely on top at the moment.

  28. Wolves 1-0 Huddersfield

    Again Dominic Iorfa getting forward well and his involvement gets the ball to James Henry who forces a save from Jed Steer from long range. 

    Wolves preparing two substitutes of their own now.

  29. SUBSTITUTION

    Wolves 1-0 Huddersfield

    Huddersfield manager Chris Powell

    First change of the game and Huddersfield boss Chris Powell replaces Mustapha Carayol with Nahki Wells.

  30. Wolves 1-0 Huddersfield

    A quick throw by Benik Afobe finds James Henry, but the winger's through ball to Adam Le Fondre is just to heavy for the striker to control and the chance is gone.

  31. Wolves 1-0 Huddersfield

    Just as Huddersfield were in charge of the opening exchanges in the first-half, Wolves are taking the game to Huddersfield at the moment. 

    They lose possession well forward though and the Terriers work it to Ishmael Miller and his shot is into the side netting.

  32. CLOSE!

    Wolves 1-0 Huddersfield

    Wolves should have doubled their lead.

    Again Dominic Iorfa gets forward well and the right-back delivers a superb ball into the six yard area but James Henry only gets a glancing touch with the goal gaping.

  33. Wolves 1-0 Huddersfield

    Sheyi Ojo watched by Martin Cranie

    A swift counter attack by Wolves finds Sheyi Ojo on the left.

    After a few drops of the shoulder, the wide man unleashes an effort the clips the top of the net. Jed Steet seemed comfortable enough it was never going in.

  34. Wolves 1-0 Huddersfield

    Something for the crowd to get excited about.

    Positive wing play from Wolves' James Herny who nutmegs a defender and whips in a decent ball that is headed away.

    From the resultant throw in, the visitors clear.

  35. Wolves 1-0 Huddersfield

    Benik Afobe turns and runs at Huddersfield but his final ball is poor. 

    He attempts to find Sheyi Ojo but it is easily cut out.

  36. KICK-OFF

    Wolves 1-0 Huddersfield

    Wolves get us going in the second-half and Dominic Iorfa mis-controls a pass in the opening 20 seconds. 

    Not the best start.

  37. The teams are back out

    HT: Wolves 1-0 Huddersfield

    Both teams are back out at the overcast Molineux and we are just about ready for the second 45 minutes.

  39. View from the press box

    HT: Wolves 1-0 Huddersfield

    Daz Hale

    BBC WM at Molineux

    Hughes and McDonald

    “I think it’s what you’d call a typical Championship game – not much to choose between the two teams, but plenty of blood and guts and plenty of commitment.

    “Wolves were slow out the traps and a little bit shaky in the opening stages, but that one moment of quality from McDonald is the difference. 

    "That lifted them, but they’re still making it maybe a little bit more difficult than it should be.”

  40. Fancy buying a West Midlands club?

    HT: Wolves 1-0 Huddersfield

    Steve Morgan

    Perhaps the reason for a subdued atmosphere today might be away from the pitch, as Wolves joined local trio Aston Villa, West Brom and Birmingham in looking for new owners this week.

    The Championship club were put up for sale on Monday by owner Steve Morgan and Wanderers chief executive Jez Moxey called the opportunity an 'attractive proposition.'

    Liverpool-born Morgan, who founded the Redrow house-building company, famously bought the club for £10 in 2007.

  41. First half stats

    HT: Wolves 1-0 Huddersfield

    Stats

    Here are the numbers from Molineux so far.

    Wolves enjoying slightly more of the ball in the opening 45 minutes, but Huddersfield have had more efforts at goal. 

    Work for manager Chris Powell to do in the dressing room.

  42. HALF-TIME

    Wolves 1-0 Huddersfield

    Ged Scott

    BBC Sport at Molineux

    "Wolves might be 1-0 up but, other than the occasional 'ooh', 'ahh', 'what game are yow watching referee?' Molineux has all the atmosphere of an empty building site.

    "Apart from Kevin McDonald's goal and a gaping chance Benik Afobe ought to have done better with, Huddersfield have carved out the majority of chances in a sleepy first half that must have long since had the TV audience at home heading for their kettles - and other more exciting electronic devices!"

  43. HALF-TIME

    Wolves 1-0 Huddersfield

    Huddersfield enjoyed the better of the opening stages, but Wolves lead at the break through Kevin McDonald's second goal in a week.

    The midfielder curled a beauty from the edge of the area after some clever build up work.

    Ishmael Miller and Emyr Huws have tested Wolves keeper Emiliano Martinez but have not carved the hosts open too many times.

  44. INJURY TIME

    Wolves 1-0 Huddersfield

    Two minutes extra time at Molineux to try and nick something before the break.

  45. GREAT SAVE!

    Wolves 1-0 Huddersfield

    Emyr Huws bursts into life, beating the Wolves offside trap.

    He controls the ball well but shifts the ball to his right foot inside the area, and his curled effort is saved well low down by on loan Arsenal keeper Emiliano Martinez.

  46. Wolves 1-0 Huddersfield

    It is walking pace at times now from Wolves who are just looking to close out the half in the lead. 

    They lose the ball though and will be grateful Ishmael Miller's touch into the area is a heavy one as he looses the ball.

  47. Wolves 1-0 Huddersfield

    It seems that Wolves' fans have only just remembered Ishmael Miller's West Brom connections as he gets roundly booed with his next touch. 

    Dean Whitehead powers a header to the edge of the area but Wolves clear the danger.

  48. Wolves 1-0 Huddersfield

    Wolves nearly causing their own downfall. 

    They lose possession in the left-back area after a throw in and Huddersfield work it to Ishmael Miller but his shot from a tight angle is straight at the chest of Emiliano Martinez.

  49. Wolves 1-0 Huddersfield

    Right-back Dominic Iorfa gets forward for Wolves, but his right wing cross is cut out by Elliot Ward.

  50. Wolves 1-0 Huddersfield

    A real lack of tempo in the game at the moment. 

    Huddersfield play some neat passes in the Wolves half, but after the hosts cut it out the ball over the top finds Adam Le Fondre offside.

  51. Video game fans

    Wolves 1-0 Huddersfield

    Kevin McDonald celebrates

    In a half of few highlights so far it is worth reflecting on Kevin McDonald's goal.

    This is the view from the Wolves side, which roughly translates as shot with lots of curl on it!

  52. Wolves 1-0 Huddersfield

    An innocuous looking ball into the box finds Wolves striker Adam le Fondre and Jed Steer races out well to block his effort with his body.

  53. Wolves 1-0 Huddersfield

    Ged Scott

    BBC Sport at Molineux

    "Beautifully taken goal from Kevin McDonald. 

    "But the home side are ahead against the run of play in their first game since the announcement that current owner Steve Morgan plans to sell up after eight years in charge after buying the club from boyhood Wolves fan Sir Jack Hayward - and the ironic cry from the South Bank is one of 'Stand up if you love Sir Jack'."

  54. YELLOW CARD

    Wolves 1-0 Huddersfield

    Neither side making much of an impression on the game at the moment.

    Adam Le Fondre plays the ball into Sheyi Ojo in the box, and as the on loan Liverpool winger stretches for the ball he catches Joe Lynch and is booked.

  55. Wolves 1-0 Huddersfield

    Golbourne and Scannell

    Wolves enjoying some possession now after that goal which seams to have given them a lift. 

    Benik Afobe makes a burst down the left but his cross comes to nothing.

  56. GOAL (McDonald)

    Wolves 1-0 Huddersfield

    Kevin McDonald opens the scoring for Wolves

    Brilliant from Kevin McDonald. 

    Expertly controlling the ball in the centre circle, he plays a neat one-two and then unleashes a curling effort from the edge of the area into the bottom right corner. 

    Lovely goal, his third this season.

  57. Wolves 0-0 Huddersfield

    James Henry's delivery is poor and easily gathered by Jed Steer.

    Huddersfield tried to counter but Dominic Iorfa marshals Mustapha Carayol well this time.

  58. YELLOW CARD (Cranie)

    Wolves 0-0 Huddersfield

    Back on the pitch after his knock, Huddersfield defender Martin Cranie pulls back Sheyi Ojo and is the first booking of the day.

    Wolves free-kick from the left wing...

  59. Wolves 0-0 Huddersfield

    Wolves manager Kenny Jackett

    There is a subdued atmosphere around Molineux at the moment from the home support and in fairness that have not had much to shout about.

    Martin Cranie off the pitch for a moment receiving some treatment.

  60. Wolves 0-0 Huddersfield

    A wild swing of a clearance from Dean Whitehead and it falls kindly to Benik Afobe behind the Huddersfield defence. 

    His is unable to control it properly with his first touch and eventually Sheyi Ojo's deflected shot is gathered easily.

  61. Wolves 0-0 Huddersfield

    Wolves unable to get hold the ball at the moment with Mustapha Carayol, Ishmeal Miller and Harry Bunn all causing problems in their half.

    The Terriers are looking lively up top but are unable to carve open a chance this time.

  62. Wolves 0-0 Huddersfield

    Better from the hosts.

    A driving run from Benik Afobe and he lays the ball off to James Henry whose whipped cross is palmed away by the goalkeeper and momentarily causes confusion in the box.

  63. Wolves 0-0 Huddersfield

    Again Huddersfield get some joy down the left, with Mustapha Carayol and Wolves fans have not had much to shout about yet. 

    From a corner the ball falls to Dean Whitehead and his shot inside the area is pushed away.

  64. Wolves 0-0 Huddersfield

    Daz Hale

    BBC WM at Molineux

    “It’s been a flat start for Wolves.

    "They haven’t got any tempo or ball retention going. Huddersfield are certainly causing Wolves problems in the wide areas.

    "Wolves’ wingers James Henry and Sheyi Ojo need to double up and help out their full-backs”

  65. Wolves 0-0 Huddersfield

    Chris Powell's side have certainly settled quicker here.

    Sending the ball forward early, Ishmael Miller wriggles away from the defender and drills over from a good 30 yards out. 

    The former West Brom striker is looking for his first goal this season.

  66. GREAT SAVE!

    Wolves 0-0 Huddersfield

    First chance of the game and this time Musthapha Carayol beats Dominic Iorfa.

    The on loan Middlesbrough winger fires a curling shot from the edge of the area but Emiliano Martinez dives to his right to save well.

    Shortly after, Carayol sets up Harry Bunn put he fires over. 

  67. Recent meetings

    Wolves 0-0 Huddersfield

    Ged Scott

    BBC Sport at Molineux

    "Huddersfield started the afternoon 16th in the table, five places below Wolves - but only two points behind.

    "They're looking to repeat their 3-1 win here at Molineux, almost exactly a year ago the day.

    "Wolves won the return game in West Yorkshire 4-1 in February, but otherwise have a very poor record against the Terriers in recent years."

  68. Wolves 0-0 Huddersfield

    First corner of the afternoon goes to Wolves and Elliot Ward just beats the oncoming Wolves attackers to the ball for another corner.

    The next ball in lacks quality and Huddersfield have a goal kick.

  69. Wolves 0-0 Huddersfield

    The Terriers enjoying some early possession in Wolverhampton. 

    A good break my Mustapha Carayol tees up Dean Whitehead but his shot is blocked on the edge of the area.

  70. KICK-OFF

    Wolves 0-0 Huddersfield

    After a pre-match huddle from both teams, Huddersfield get us going.

  71. Players in the tunnel

    Wolves v Huddersfield (12:30 BST)

    Here we go then from an overcast Molineux at the moment. Danny Batth and Dean Whitehead lead their sides out.

  72. Where are 'ya?!

    Wolves v Huddersfield (12:30 BST)

    Ged Scott

    BBC Sport at Molineux

    "With half an hour to kick-off at Molineux, the ground was still almost empty - and only filling up slowly. 

    "With the comparatively smoothly flowing level of traffic outside, it does not look like being the biggest gate of the season. But then, with a lunchtime kick-off, and the game being shown live on TV, it's hardly a surprise.

    "Wolves can climb into the top six, at least temporarily, if they can repeat Tuesday's win at Fulham - the biggest win in seven months for Kenny Jackett's men."

  73. Coverage

    Wolves v Huddersfield (12:30 BST)

    If you are lucky enough to live in the Midlands or Yorkshire, you can also follow the game on your BBC local radio station. 

    BBC WM and BBC Radio Leeds both have coverage from Molineux. 

    Unfortunately a rights issue prevents us from bringing you the commentary online.

  74. New kit alert

    Wolves v Huddersfield (12:30 BST)

    Good news for fans of the Terriers heading into today - Wolves are without a home win against your side in eight league games (L4 D4), with the last victory coming in November 1988.

    The other news I shall leave for you, without comment, is your side shall be playing in this grey and white camouflaged style kit, with red trimming. It is certainly different. 

  75. Huddersfield line-up

    Wolves v Huddersfield (12:30 BST)

    Huddersfield Town line-up v Wolves

    Subs: Allinson, Smith, Hudson, Hogg, Paterson, Wells, Billing.

    Huddersfield manager Chris Powell names the same starting XI for the fourth game in a row.

  76. Wolves line-up

    Wolves v Huddersfield (12:30 BST)
