Wanderers had not won in front of their own fans since September and finally broke the barren spell - albeit through a sliced own goal from visiting striker Marlon King.

Solbakken said: "It's a lot of relief (to end our home run without a win).

"A lot of things were maybe put to bed today - a clean sheet, a home win, a good second-half (performance) and a derby win. We have two very difficult away games coming up so it was important game in many aspects.

"I think we should concentrate on our performances and not look so much at the table. It's still not good reading."

Wolves leap-frogged Birmingham with the win and now sit in 16th place in the Championship.

ah, Fergie is just having another pop at Rooney. He just wants to put him down whenever he gets a chance. Rooney is by far the best English player. Carrick is not far behind, mind. However, by elevating Carrick like that, Sir is having a dig at Wayne. Fergie is well-known for mind games like that. Good to see he's still feisty.
