Referee:

Mick McCarthy's Golden Revolution gained more momentum as his side of young wolves made it 10 points out of 12, squeezing out Ipswich Town 1-0 at Portman Road.

The win sees Wanderers move level on points with the magical 6th league place, and with 12 matches to go, McCarthy's hopes of a play off spot don't seem quite so fanciful anymore.

Stephen Ward's 33 minute strike settled the spoils, pouncing on a poor Ipswich back pass to score an opportunists goal from an impossibly acute angle that gave Wolves their 6th win in 8 away games.

But more than that solitary goal, it was yet another fine display by the team as a whole that McCarthy assembled for next to nothing that brought the points back home to the Black Country.

If Wolves fail to be in the play off shake up, it won`t be for lack of commitment or effort. The current squad, with perhaps one or two exceptions are proving what a lot of fans have suspected for a long time, that a team built on youthful hunger, eager to prove itself to the world were what the club really needed.

The only question mark surrounded the fans having the patience to let them bed in and cut their teeth at this level.

But the current league position puts paid to those particular fears, as does the support currently being given to both the men on the field and manager Mick McCarthy.

It is still far too early for superlatives, and the final decision on the success of the current campaign is some way off.

But what was initially seen as a season for rebuilding has turned into an assault on promotion that few would have staked money on when the highly paid internationals started to scramble for contracts elsewhere when Sir Jack Hayward's money, and patience, finally ran out.
