It is nine wins on the spin for Reading in The Championship as Wolves were sunk at Molineux.

Glenn Hoddle's side may have been many people's tips for promotion at the start of the campaign but Reading are looking a far better bet as they sit nine points clear at the top of the table.

Dave Kitson and Bobby Convey scored the goals to make it a club record 24 league games unbeaten for Steve Coppell's leaders.

Glen Little provided the pass for top scorer Kitson to head past Stefan Postma just before the half hour mark.

United States international Convey hit a low drive beyond Postma to clinch the points after 64 minutes and Reading were good value for the victory.

Kitson twice hit the bar and caused problems for the Wolves defence while only a decent save from Postma denied Kevin Doyle a third goal for Reading.

Wolves had few chances to score but Rohan Ricketts spurned one good opportunity when blazing over the top.
