Wolves completed their unlikely mission impossible, booking a place in the play offs with the biggest win of their season, coming from behind to beat Leicester City 4-1 at The Walkers Stadium and set up a two leg meeting with local rivals West Bromwich Albion, the prize being a place in footballs richest ever game.
Albion ensured their place with a convincing 7-0 whitewash of Barnsley under 11's, after amassing an impressive single point from their previous 5 home games, form that must surely have Tony Mowbray enthusing about his sides ability to cope with the pressure of an end of season tussle.
Wolves have shown little stomach for a fight all season, other than battling their hearts out, sweating blood to earn valuable points when down to ten men, and coming from behind to take all three when the pressure was on, home and away.
Stark contrast to Albion's impressive handling of increased expectation that led to such sterling performances in front of their own supporters, typified by the exemplary handling of of the threat offered up by former Wolves striker Leon Clarke.
The die is cast, the date is set.
Let the victors take the spoils.
