Freddy Eastwood’s phenomenal goalscoring record continued into his fourth straight match as he bagged a brace against Blackpool at Molineux to earn Wolves a hard fought win and send them into an automatic promotion place..

Mick McCarthy’s men struggled to contain The Seasiders who came with attacking intent, and had Wolves on the back foot during early exchanges.

Wolves survived until the 51st minute when David Fox found Gary Taylor-Fletcher from the left who drilled his right foot shot into the corner of the net from 6 yards.

Wanderers finally woke out of their slumber after an hour, with Eastwood finding the net twice in 10 minutes as Blackpools frenetic start looked to be taking effect.

Blackpool still maintained an ever present threat, but cruelly left the pitch with nothing to show for it, a situation Wolves fans can empathise with.

It may be too early to talk of the birth of a legend, but with his name ringing out from all four sides of the ground and 5 goals in four to his credit, Freddy Eastwood is setting his stall out early.
