Wolves are back in the play-off places after a stunning victory at Charlton as Karl Henry scored the winning goal with virtually the last kick of the game.

A competitive game became a great one as a pulsation last 15 minutes saw Sylvan Ebanks-Blake score one of the best goals of the season and his second of the game to give Wolves the lead with eight minutes to go. His tuend past defender McCarthy was sublime and his finish emphatic.

Earlier he had given Wolves the lead, but Halford's smart shot on the turn levelled before the break. Ebanks-Blake should have restored Wolves lead but hit a post and Henry missed the rebound when it seemed easier to score.

Charlton had played well second half though and looked to have brokenm Wolves' hearts when Leroy Lita headed in from far too far out for my liking in the second minute of injury time.

Yet amazingly Wolves had two more chances to win it, Kevin Kyle heading against the bar then with the clock almost run down, Keogh crossed from the left and Henry arived on cue to make up for his earlier miss and send the 1,500 Wolves fans wild.
