Wolves made it 11 games unbeaten by securing a 2-2 draw against Brighton at the AMEX Stadium.
Diogo Jota blasted Nuno Espirito’s side into the league but that evaporated in eight minutes. First Neal Maupay equalised before Davy Propper edged the Seagulls in front.
Wolves are made of stern stuff though and shortly before the interval, Jota pounced again to restore parity.
After Brighton’s exploits in beating Arsenal on Thursday night, the point looks a decent one for Wolves.
Graham Potter’s team are having a decent season and Wolves will be thankful they were the latest high-profile victims.
Jota’s double provided a timely return to form for the 23-year-old. His goals were his first since September with the Portuguese performer hitting something of a barren run.
He has failed to contribute a single assist this season and his boss will surely hope yesterday’s double helps him ignite his campaign.
Wolves are sixth in the Premier League after yesterday’s draw and are well in the hunt for a European place once again.
After yesterday’s showing, however, it was the performance of Jota which caught the eye.
Wolves supporters were delighted to see a return to form for the forward and took to Twitter to praise the youngster.
Here is a selection of Tweets from Wolves supporters regarding Jota.

Glad Jota got a goal after sometime. Hoping he can improve his decision making ability to finish off the great runs he gets on.
