Wolverhampton Wanderers have a massive weekend coming up in the English Championship.
Win away to third placed Aston Villa on Saturday and they’ll moved 13 points clear of Steve Bruce’s side with just 10 games remaining, virtually assuring automatic promotion to the English Premier League, barring complete collapse.
Importantly for Nuno Espirito Santo and his side, they overcame a three-match winless streak on Wednesday night, winning 3-0 away to Leeds United.
At the heart of that performance was defender Willy Boly, who again produced a stellar display from their defensive line, even getting on the scoresheet for only the third time this season.
The Frenchman has been a huge success story on loan from Porto and fans are now hoping they can sign him permanently in the summer, some even saying that he is one of the best defenders they’ve ever seen at the club.
They took to Twitter to share their thoughts on his recent form…
Thought big Willy Boly was fantastic last night. His composure on the ball is unreal. One of the best defenders I've seen at the club in my lifetime #WWFC

Boly tonight. Immense. So cool and calm, strolls through games like he's having a kickabout with his kids over the park. The most accomplished defender I've seen in a Wolves shirt in my 20 years supporting the club. #WWFC
