Wolves great Wilshaw dies
Wolves great Dennis Wilshaw has died at the age of 78.

The 1950s Molineux striker died of a heart attack at his home in Stoke on Monday evening.

Wilshaw scored 172 goals in 378 matches for the club and played in their famous 3-2 win over Hungarian side Honved in 1954.

He was capped 12 times by England and scored four goals against Scotland at Wembley in 1955.

Wolves will hold a minute's silence in memory of the player before Saturday's final game of the season against Tottenham.
