Wolves’ Championship season continued with a win against Sheffield Wednesday at Molineux on Saturday.

Goals and a win were finally witnessed at Molineux!

The season (which wasn’t good enough) ended on a positive note with a two-one win over Sheffield Wednesday, who will now take part in the play-offs.

After six-hours and six-minutes without a home goal Michael Turner turned Matt Doherty’s (who was the last one to score at Molineux back on 8th March) cross into his own net with 7-minutes played.

George Saville added the second before half time with Doherty again providing the cross.

Doherty was involved in a third-goal of the match with his handball giving Wednesday a last minute penalty, scored by Lewis McGugan but Wolves saw out the win to finish in 14th (well down on last season) with the goals ensuring we avoiding being the first ever side to draw five successive home matches in the Football League!

Here’s a round up of the Championship action from the other games played at the weekend….

These were the other results.

Saturday 7th May 2016
Blackburn 3-1 Reading
Cardiff 1-1 Birmingham
Charlton 0-3 Burnley
Derby 0-1 Ipswich
Fulham 1-0 Bolton
Huddersfield 1-5 Brentford
Hull 5-1 Rotherham
Middlesbrough 1-1 Brighton
MK Dons 1-2 Nottm Forest
Preston 1-1 Leeds
QPR 1-0 Bristol City
Wolves 2-1 Sheff Wed

The only issue to be decided on the final day of the season was who would finish in the second automatic promotion spot.

Middlesbrough (one-one) were the side to do this with a draw against Brighton at the Riverside Stadium meaning Boro are back in the Premier League as runners up with the Seagulls now needing to pick themselves up for the play-offs.

I say the ‘only’ issue to be decided was the second place!

Of course that wasn’t true was it as Burnley (three-nil) were already promoted but still wanted the title with the Clarets confirmed as Champions with a win at relegated Charlton.

Brentford and Hull (five-one) ended the season with convincing wins at Huddersfield and as hosts to Rotherham (respectively) with the Bees likely to wish the season wasn’t ending whereas the Tigers go into the play-offs with a boost.

Now we await the play-offs semi-finals as the final side heading into the topflight is decided.
