This was a performance to savour for Gary O’Neil, even if Wolves couldn’t quite make it the perfect night for their manager and travelling supporters by recording a fourth successive top-flight win for the first time in more than 50 years.
When these two teams last met back in August at Molineux, such was Brighton’s dominance that Roberto De Zerbi’s side found themselves 4-0 up after only 55 minutes. But five months on, Wolves showed the rapid progress they have made under the former Bournemouth manager – only leaders Liverpool have taken more points since the start of December – and perhaps should have snatched the victory had their forwards been more clinical in the dying minutes.
