Hammered 4-1 by local rivals Aston Villa in their previous match, Wolves got back on track in style with a dominant display at Molineux. With hindsight I should have done. I wouldn't have thought my staff would have behaved like that. My experience told me that the third game in a week was too much.
Middlesbrough beat Barnsley 3-1 while Derby, who also have 61 points, face Nottingham Forest on Sunday.
Hull City eased their relegation fears as they hit back from 3-1 down to beat Norwich City 4-3 - Abel Hernandez netting two penalties before Harry Wilson's victor.
Sol Bamba, Callum Paterson and Kenneth Zahore scored for Neil Warnock's side after Neal Maupay had opened the scoring for Brentford.
"I am under no illusions about that fact but we have given ourselves the opportunity to make further progress".
Therefore, it's down to the players to get the fans onside quickly and a fast start could ensure the ground is bouncing again. Enda Stevens opened the scoring in the first half before David Brooks' goal after the break helped lift them to seventh.
"Some have said it's the best team there's ever been in the Championship, so for us to win so handsomely was terrific from our boys".
"Wolves have players who were playing in the Champions League last season and to now being in the Championship is a big call", added the 57-year-old. The Swansea loanee Oli McBurnie celebrated his first Scotland call-up with a neat volley just before half-time only for Josh Murphy to equalise.
Hull City picked up another big win at the bottom of the table, but Barnsley were held and Burton Albion lost on a dramatic evening at either end of the division.
Efforts from Markus Henriksen, Harry Wilson and Jarrod Bowen have the Humberside club now nine points clear of the drop zone as they look to avert a second consecutive relegation.
