Wolverhampton Wanderers returned to winning ways with a 3-0 win against Reading at Molineux on Tuesday night and fans were delighted with the performance of one of their men on social media.
Nuno Espirito Santoâ€™s side was shell-shocked last weekend when they were hammered in their last outing against Aston Villa, and the Portuguese manager will have been pleased with the reaction from his players.
Wolves have had to start looking over their shoulder in the Championship table, as they remain just three points ahead of Cardiff City with just nine matches left to play.
The home side managed to find the opener against the Royals late on in the first half when Matt Doherty scored with his head.
Wolves doubled their lead just before the hour-mark when Benik Afobe scored on his first start for the club since arriving back on loan from AFC Bournemouth.
The Molineux outfit secured all three points 15 minutes later when Doherty netted his second of the game.
Wolves fans were pleased with the teamâ€™s return to winning ways and were delighted with the performance of Ryan Bennett after the match.
The defender had sat out of the defeat against Aston Villa last weekend and was reintroduced to the side, replacing Danny Batth and impressed many watching.
Fans commented that the defender had been immense during the game and was an instant upgrade to the teamâ€™s efforts, with many believing he was the difference.
Here are some of their reactions:
Bennett, brilliant #wwfc

My MOTM was Ryan Bennett. Compared to Saturday, he brought the calmness and assurance of Paolo Maldini to the defence tonight #wwfc

You could feel the relief as soon as we scored and then we got back into our old groove and cruised it. Bennett superb, Neves superb, Costa superb. Hope Jota is ok! That was the perfect tonic for the Villa hangiber. Bravo @Wolves #wwfc

Bennett made a hugggggeeeee difference to the defensive and how we play from the back. And Neves pass to Costa for Afobe's goal was a thing of beauty!
One step closer#wwfc
