Watch: Matt Doherty Finishes Off Beautiful Team Move From Wolves

After a disastrous start to the campaign, Wolves seem to have gotten their season back on track over the last two games. A last gasp draw at Crystal Palace last week could prove to be the turning point, with today's game against fellow strugglers Watford seen as a vital match.

Having qualified for Europe at the first attempt after their promotion to the Premier League, the extra midweek games have proven problematic. Wolves didn't add all that much to their squad over the summer, using the majority of their budget to sign players who were on loan at the club last season.

That has resulted in their relatively small squad becoming stretched due to Europa League commitments. That has certainly affected their domestic form, although they did manage to get their second win of the campaign today.

They would take the lead after 17 minutes, with Irishman Matt Doherty scoring the opener. It was a beautiful team move, with the defender providing the finishing touch at the far post.

Doherty also played a key role in the second, providing the cross which ultimately resulted in Janmaat's own goal.

After struggling with an injury in the past few weeks, Doherty looks to be getting back to the form he displayed last season. The timing could hardly be better, with Ireland set to play two vital Euro 2020 qualifiers next month.

The Wolves man is likely to start at left back away in Georgia, with Enda Stevens suspended for that one. It would be only his second start of this campaign, having played on the right of midfield in the win over Gibraltar in March.

Ireland fans have been crying out for him to be in the team ever since, and a strong showing in Tbilisi could go a long way to securing a spot in the team for the remainder of the campaign.
