Wolverhampton Wanderers took a massive step towards automatic promotion from the English Championship on Tuesday night, beating Reading 3-0 on a night that Aston Villa lost.
The Villans managed to put a little bit of pressure on Wolves at the weekend with a thumping win when the pair met, however, Nuno Espirito Santo’s bounced back magnificently to go ten points clear of third place with just nine games remaining.
Matt Doherty was the hero of the evening, scoring a superb double, which sandwich an effort from Benik Afobe.
While they stole the headlines, it was another player that caught the eye of Wolves fans – Helder Costa.
Last season’s double-figure goalscorer has failed to replicate that kind of form for large chunks of this term, but looked superb on Tuesday night, assisting Afobe for their second of the evening.
Supporters believe it was the kind of performance that signifies he is getting back to his best and they can’t wait to see he can do in the closing stages of the season.
They took to Twitter to share their thoughts…

Costa looked like his old self. Played with a smile all game and would have topped it with that one on one. #wwfc

Thought Costa played well tonight,buzzing round the pitch,looked to take players on and even tho his tacking is still shite ? chased back more and made the effort. Unlucky not to get a goal in the end. #wwfc #wolves good performance over all from everyone. Well done lads
