The Cherries loanee was on target once again for Steve Bruce’s side, netting the third goal in what was a crucial win in the Championship promotion picture.

Albert Adomah swung in a cross and Grabban was at the near post to nick it ahead of Willy Boly for his 16th of the season, his fourth goal for Villa in as many consecutive games.

On the opposing team to Grabban was fellow striker Afobe, fresh from his mid-week goal against Leeds United.

The 25-year-old came off the bench of 67 minutes, with Wolves already 3-1 down.

In the SPL, the Cherries defender played 90 minutes and kept a clean sheet, as Partick Thistle drew 0-0 with third place Aberdeen.

Ben Whitfield

Whitfield came off the bench and played just over 10 minutes of Port Vale’s 1-1 draw at Grimsby.

Sam Surridge

The striker started and played an hour, as Yeovil lost 2-0 to Newport County at Huish Park.

Ryan Allsop

Allsop saw his Lincoln side earn themselves three points against Chesterfield, winning 3-1 away from home.

Aaron Ramsdale

On the opposing side to Allsop was fellow ‘keeper Ramsdale, who did see his side take the lead, before Lincoln came back.
