David Edwards late header inspired a crucial victory against Leeds United as his Wolverhampton Wanderers side won their Sky Bet Championship thriller at Molineux 4-3 and moved into the play-off places.

His side went a goal down as Kevin McDonald was made to pay for a mistake which Charlie Taylor capitalised on before Nouha Dicko scored his first half brace and assisted Benik Afobe’s second half finish.

Danny Batth gifted the away side with an own goal before Alex Mowatt struck the back of the net with a spectacular left footed equaliser.

Edwards, who secured victory for Wolves who ended Easter Monday ahead of promotion rivals Ipswich Town and Brentford, will be hoping of solidifying his side’s chances of back-to-back promotions on their trip to Birmingham on Saturday.

The game started with an early chance for Dicko as he headed the ball from James Henry’s freekick goalwards.

Soon after this chance McDonald, who found himself being pressed by Leeds players into the corner, then released the ball into his own box which hit the back of Richard Stearman and landed at the feet of Taylor who put United ahead.

After an opportunity to equalise from Bakary Sako, Wolves levelled the score as Afobe’s cross found Dicko at the far post who poked the ball in at a very tight angle in the 19th minute.

Fantastic blocks from Marco Silvestri and Sol Bamba prevented Henry and Sako from putting Wolves in front but Dicko fired in on the stroke of half-time after a through ball from Sako.

Just after the break Batth’s strike on the edge of the box bounced off Dicko into the feet of Afobe in the six yard box who fired in making him the top goalscorer in England alongside Harry Kane.

Batth was then culpable for the a Leeds comeback as he tried to clear a looping ball from Mowatt which he poked into the back of his own net in the 66th minute before Mowatt popped up with a memorable equaliser from the outside of the box.

McDonald made reparations for the first goal his side conceded with an amazing delivery into Edwards in the 88th minute for the fourth and winning goal.
