The leader have taken the division by storm this season although their success is not without controversy following their tie-up with Portuguese super-agent Jorge Mendes. Mendes represents head coach Nuno Espirito Santo and star players Ruben Neves, Diogo Jota and Ivan Cavaleiro. He also has a long association with Wolves owner Fosun International, which holds a stake in his company, and he advised it on the purchase of the club. Rival Championship clubs were unhappy about the relationship, with Leeds United chairman Andrea Radrizzani saying Wolves' transfer policy was "not legal and fair".

For a while Saturday it looked as if Wolves would have to wait until Sunday, when they play Birmingham City, to go up when Fulham took a 70th-minute lead against Brentford through Aleksander Mitrovic. But Neal Maupay's last-gasp headed equaliser sent Wolves up and damaged Fulham's own prospect. The Cottagers stay third, one point behind Cardiff City, having played a game more. Cardiff beat Norwich City 2-0 with late goals from substitute Kenneth Zohore and Junior Hoilett. Derby County, surprisingly beaten 3-1 by bottom club Burton Albion, drop out of the remaining playoff places, which are now occupied by Aston Villa, who beat Leeds Friday night, Middlesbrough and Millwall.
