For any manager under pressure an emphatic 4-1 win is a welcome boost and that's exactly what Ståle Solbakken got at Bristol City.
Without a win in nine, 3 points from a possible 27, slipping from 3rd in the Championship to 18th and being the target of vandals. It had not been a good few weeks for the Wolves gaffer.
So it was an ideal time to go and face Bristol City, the team with the worst home record in the league with 9 defeats in their last 11 games.
Goals from Ebanks-Blake, Doyle and Sigurdarson fired Wolves into a 4-0 lead at half-time and the points were sealed.
Not only that but it was a welcome confidence boost for the team, with the manager taking the credit for his attacking philosophy.
"I think what is important is the way of playing - that the players feel it can work again. It had worked for long periods but it had also been very bad for long periods. So it was important for the players to see that.
"We have something to build on with the way we played and the way we stuck to our principles.' he told the Express & Star.
He continued: "Hopefully we can build on this and we can be a December team because we certainly weren`t a November team!
"But I`m not the type of guy to get carried away."
That final sentence is an important one. We got way too ahead of ourselves back in October, which meant that our sharp drop of form was even more compounding.
We're at home to Birmingham this weekend, at least the tension will be lifted somewhat without the weight of going ten games without a win. But lets not put ourselves under too much pressure to now go on a winning run.
We've got difficult games coming up against Middlesbrough and Blackpool so lets see where that puts us come Christmas.
