  1. Wolves on the brink

    FT: Wolves 2-0 Derby

    Words don't really do it justice. That Ruben Neves wondergoal has sent Wolves into dreamland.

    Nuno Espirito Santo's side dominated all 90 minutes against Derby, and they have got their just rewards. Wolves are two points away from the Premier League.

    You can read Ged Scott's report by clicking here but I, meanwhile, will be enjoying a nice cup of Ovaltine as I gaze upon that Neves goal all night long.

    Thank you for joining us.

  2. 'He's a little magician'

    FT: Wolves 2-0 Derby

    Wolves captain Conor Coady told Sky Sports:

    "He does it every day in training, it's ridiculous. He talks about the team but he's the incredible one.

    "He's a pleasure to have, he really is. He's a little magician.

    "We were fantastic, moved the ball well and controlled the game. It was about dictating the game.

    "We want to keep on winning that's what we've done all season. It's about winning games. We're looking forward to Sunday [against Birmingham City] and it's about driving on."

  3. 'It was a good goal'

    FT: Wolves 2-0 Derby

    Wolves goalscorer Ruben Neves told Sky Sports:

    "I took risks but I'm happy for the team. It's not about my goal, it's about all our work.

    "It's not done we have four games to go and we need to do well to achieve our goals.

    "It was a good goal."

  4. FULL-TIME

    Wolves 2-0 Derby

    And that's it, the full-time whistle blows.

    Wolves are two points away from a return to the Premier League. What a performance that was.

  5. Post update

    Wolves 2-0 Derby

    Wolves, if anything, are holding back here. They could easily press an attack and score again if they want.

    Instead, they're passing it about like they're Brazil as Molineux sings loudly.

  6. Post update

    Wolves 2-0 Derby

    Both sides currently deeply engaged in a game of 'who can string the most passes without having a shot?'

    Four minutes added on.

  7. Post update

    Wolves 2-0 Derby

    RUBEN NEVES-WATCH

    Back on the pitch, looking okay.

  8. Post update

    Wolves 2-0 Derby

    Matej Vydra is replaced by Jamie Hanson for Derby County.

    Elsewhere, Ruben Neves is down for Wolves after looking like he received some sort of blow to the head.

    Worry not Wolves fans, he's on his feet and he can walk to the touchline.

  9. Post update

    Wolves 2-0 Derby

    Derby captain Curtis Davies concedes a free-kick and Barry Douglas launches it into the box but Wolves' forwards can't quite get a head onto it and it's scooped up by visiting keeper Scott Carson.

  10. SUBSTITUTION

    Wolves 2-0 Derby

    As Tom Lawrence limps from the pitch, both sides make a substitution.

    Ivan Cavaleiro is replaced by youngster Morgan Gibbs-White for the hosts while the Rams remove David Nugent in place of Cameron Jerome.

  11. Post update

    Wolves 2-0 Derby

    Gary Rowett

    Derby are getting so easily beaten off the ball it's silly. It's getting worse for Gary Rowett's side as Matej Vydra and Tom Lawrence are both in a fair bit of discomfort and they don't look like they will be able to continue.

  12. Post update

    Wolves 2-0 Derby

    This is just so easy for Wolves, who are passing the ball about with relative ease in front of an attendance of 28,503.

    Nuno's men cannot afford to get complacent, however, they will want to see this game out.

  13. Post update

    Wolves 2-0 Derby

    Just under 15 minutes remain. What to Derby have in their locker? They've had just one shot on target tonight.

    Time is running out if they are to get something out of this match.

  14. SUBSTITUTIONS

    Wolves 2-0 Derby

    Ruben Neves passes to Willy Boly who falls over on what must be a slick pitch at Molineux considering how misty it is.

    In the mean time, Derby bring off Joe Ledley and bring on Kasey Palmer.

    Wolves take their opportunity to take goalscorer Diogo Jota off and bring on Leo Bonatini.

  15. Neves' special goal

    Wolves 2-0 Derby

    For those of you just joining us, Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves did this about 20 minutes ago...

    Stunning.

  16. Post update

    Wolves 2-0 Derby

    Molineux is pretty muted right now. Wolves are passing the ball around well and Matt Doherty finds Diogo Jota with a lovely long-range delivery.

    However, the Wolves top scorer just can't quite beat two pressing Derby defenders to get a shot on goal.

  17. SUBSTITUTION

    Wolves 2-0 Derby

    Wolves bring off Benik Afobe and on comes Helder Costa.

    Nuno Espirito Santo not backing off his attack as we enter the final 25 minutes of normal time?

    Andrew Neill: Without wanting to sound disrespectful to Wolves how did they get Neves? Surely a Premier League or La Liga team would have loved to sign him? He's such a talent!

    He'll get his chance in the Premier League in August Andrew, don't worry!

  19. Post update

    Wolves 2-0 Derby

    Tom Huddlestone, who had a loan spell at Wolves during the Glenn Hoddle years of 2004 to 2006, has a long-range free-kick well blocked by the hosts.

    But the Rams win a corner as Wolves struggle to clear their lines. Romain Saiss, who's looking a darnsight better than he did earlier after taking that knock, helps Wolves get it away.

  20. Post update

    Wolves 2-0 Derby

    Ruben Neves will make all the headlines tonight but Diogo Jota is having a fine game for Wolves.

    He gets inside the box, turns his man and fires across the face of goal and nearly trebles the hosts' lead.

    Neves has scored six goals this season - all of which have been from outside the area. Decent player is Ruben.
