Wolves slipped to only their second League defeat of the season as a late Michael Bostwick free-kick proved to be the deciding factor in a virtually chanceless encounter with Peterborough United at London Road.
Peterborough kicked-off attacking the end of the ground behind the goal that wasn't in use and the first opportunity of the game fell to Leigh Griffiths whose early shot was well wide of the mark.
There may not have been any goals between Wolves and Brentford, the two form sides of League One, but the crowd at Molineux on Saturday afternoon were treated to a cracking game of football.
And, although Wanderers lost their top spot to Leyton Orient, the point gained stretched their advantage over third placed Peterborough to eight.
Ethan Ebanks-Landell celebrated his full League debut for Wolves by scoring the only goal of the game and sending the Molineux men to the top of the League One table.
But it was never easy for Kenny Jackett's side, who were pushed all the way by bottom placed Notts County.
Kevin McDonald returned from injury and Ebanks-Land ell played at right-back with Samuel Ricketts away on international duty and Jack Price, who was unwell, missing from the team that took on Oldham in the FA Cup.
Whilst they didn't have everything their own way, Wolves ground out a 2-0 victory over Stevenage in the first ever meeting of the two clubs. Kevin Doyle made the early breakthrough but it wasn't until ten minutes from the end that James Henry gave his side a little breathing space.
There were two changes to the home starting line-up with Björn Sigurdarson and Doyle coming in for Leigh Griffiths, who took a place on the bench, and the injured Kevin McDonald.
It might be tough for some of his harsher critics to accept, but in some ways Jamie O'Hara highlights the culture of the ‘new' Wolves.
Or perhaps more accurately the new O'Hara, or indeed the O'Hara of old from the days when he was a key factor in keeping Wolves in the Premier League. It is strange to be talking about someone who did not even play, but the midfielder's selection on the bench at Bradford City was a significant statement from Kenny Jackett and a clear indication that O'Hara's attitude, as well as fitness and form, has made a big impression on the head coach.
Wolves moved up to second place in the League One table after coming from behind to win a hard fought encounter with Bradford City at Valley Parade.
Richard Stearman came in for the injured Matt Doherty and David Davis returned taking the place of Jack Price who was suffering from migraine and vision problems. For the first time this season Jamie O'Hara figured as he took a place on the bench.
Wolves kicked-off defending the end of the ground that housed around 2,500 of their supporters and the game began at a brisk pace on a sunny Yorkshire afternoon.
Football superfan Peter Abbott missed his first home game in 37 years to attend his step-daughter's wedding - and met his favourite player, Wolves striker Steve Bull, at the reception! Wolves fan Peter, 57, could hardly believe his eyes when legend Bull arrived at the wedding on Saturday 19 October, with a signed shirt and a programme from the 1-1 home draw with Coventry.
It is hard to believe we are already nearly a quarter of a way through the League One season. If I were the head teacher writing his report I would say: "Very encouraging progress, but could do better."
The pupils would probably point to the League table as proof of their hard work and success and indeed third place after 10 games, with 25 points out of 30 is, on paper, A-Grade stuff.
We've been used to talking about league wins this season, but finally we get to talk about a victory built on control, shape, balance and work-rate. The Wolves triumph at Colchester United last Saturday was clinical and hopefully a breakthrough performance.
We need to stop tempering our enthusiasm with the line: ‘But it's only League One'. Beat what's in front of you with class and conviction and get straight back into the Championship. Then worry about the next step up.
A Leigh Griffiths double and a Kevin Doyle strike saw Wolves celebrate their first ever visit to Colchester's Weston Homes Community Stadium with a comfortable 3-0 win to maintain their challenge on the top two in League One.
Kenny Jackett made three changes to his side as new signing James Henry made his debut on the right, Richard Stearman returned in the left-back position and there was a start for Kevin Doyle.
