  • GOOOAAAALLLL!!! Wolves open the scoring!!! Some great link-play between the Wolves front three sees Podence put Hwang into space on the left. He finds Jimenez in the six-yard box, and he prods the ball past the advancing Foster and into the back of the net! 1-0 to the hosts!

  • Oh dear! It's an own goal! Neves' wide ball finds Jonny, who cuts into the box before dinking the ball to the back post. His opposite wing-back Ait-Nouri meets it, but his cross back in is deflected off Hernandez, and it beats Foster to make it 2-0 to Wolves! Awful defending from Watford, and Wolves are suddenly in cruise control.

  • GOAL! Wolves have a third and it's a horror show from Foster! Attempting to beat the incoming Jimenez, the Watford keeper slips as he clears the ball, which goes straight to Podence who strokes home into the empty net! Wolves are 3-0 up already, and it's a long, long way back for the Hornets, whose defensive woes have been comically exposed here.

  • Dennis does well to turn and sprint out of a Neves challenge before being scythed down from behind by Ait-Nouri. The offender is yellow-carded, and concedes the free-kick in a dangerous position.

  • GOOOAALLLL!!!! It's a fourth for Wolves!!! Ait-Nouri crosses over the defence to find Chiquinho on the opposite byline. He finds Neves on the edge of the area, and the midfielder curls a delightful chip over Foster to make it 4-0!!! What a beautiful strike to put Wolves four in front!
