Wolves 2-1 Luton
Paul Ince's superb goal two minutes from time gave Wolves the win to propel them into the play-off places.

Mark Davies' instinctive finish had put Wolves ahead just before the hour, but Steve Howard's bravely headed equaliser seemed to have given Luton a point.

But Ince, lurking on the edge of the box, crashed a wonderful half-volley past Luton goalkeeper Marlon Beresford.

Davies' strike, a precise close-range volley, was the 17-year-old midfielder's first goal for Wolves.

  • Wolves manager Glenn Hoddle:
    "It's the first time we've won when we haven't played well and that's a good sign.

    "If we go on a run - and we're capable of doing that - then we can consolidate this play-off position.

    "We had to make sure we won even if it was a bit 'ugly' and I'm delighted."

  • Luton manager Mike Newell:
    "It's been the story of our season away from home.

    "It's getting a little bit frustrating because I'm having to say the same things week in, week out.

    "They've scored against the run of play - unless I'm watching a different game we were the better side."
