Wolves got back to winning ways as goals from Carl Cort, Kenny Miller and Lee Naylor gave them a 3-1 victory over Stoke.

Glenn Hoddle's side had failed to record a victory in their last four outings heading to the Britannia Stadium as they took on a home side with confidence high after consecutive away successes.

However, the visitors upset the odds as a goals either side of the interval killed off Stoke's challenge, with a stunning set-piece strike from Naylor clinching the three points.

The hosts started brightly with Darel Russell and Mamady Sidibe both going close in the opening exchanges, while Michael Oakes was called into action to stop Marlon Broomes' effort.

Yet it was Wolves that broke the deadlock just two minutes before the break when Cort finished off Seol Ki-Hyeon's cross with his left foot.

The goal was cruel on the home side, but worse was to follow straight after the re-start as Miller doubled the visitors' advantage.

Seol was again the provider as another cross from the wing was nodded in by the Scotland international.

The points were wrapped up with a cracker from Naylor as he curled home a 30-yard free-kick after Cort had been fouled.

Stoke did at least manage to get on the scoresheet when Lewis Buxton headed home a corner from Paul Gallagher, but it was nothing more than a consolation as Wolves returned home with the spoils.
