Sheff Wed 1-3 Wolves
Wolves recorded their first win of the Championship campaign with victory at Sheffield Wednesday, who remain pointless and bottom of the table.

The visitors went ahead when Freddy Eastwood pounced on keeper Lee Grant's parry from Andy Keogh's shot.

Wade Small equalised when he headed in Glenn Whelan's corner - after it was handled by Michael Gray en route.

Michael Kightly's strike just after the restart gave Wolves the lead before Jay Bothroyd fired in the third late on.

  • Sheffield Wednesday manager Brian Laws:
    "It was quite evident here that we need new defenders. We are in the process of negotiations with a player at present.

    "But it is difficult because the season is under way and that has been a major problem for us.

    "We have had a lot of knockbacks and it can be very frustrating but we are trying to make a breakthrough."

  • Wolves manager Mick McCarthy praised Freddy Eastwood and Jay Bothroyd:
    "Freddy is a good player and everyone knew that - I expect him to score goals.

    "It was a great response from Jay after some vicious criticism from me last week, which was absolutely justifiable.

    "To be fair to Jay he has knuckled down this week. He enjoys being here and he has responded in the right way."
