It left a seven-point gap to third place after Aston Villa's automatic promotion hopes suffered a major blow with a surprise 3-1 defeat at home to QPR.

Defender Conor Coady admits that Wolverhampton Wanderers can not afford to dwell on their 4-1 defeat to Aston Villa if they want to earn promotion to the Premier League. With hindsight I should have done. I blame myself because I always thought it would be hard to get the bandwagon rolling again.

Doherty struck in each half, either side of a 58th-minute goal from Benik Afobe, as the league leaders earned a much-needed victory after a run of just five points from their previous five games.

Middlesbrough beat Barnsley 3-1 while Derby, who also have 61 points, face Nottingham Forest on Sunday.

That victory ensured Wolves stayed ahead of Cardiff City in the race for the title after they won 3-1 at Brentford to strengthen their grip on second.

Sol Bamba, Callum Paterson and Kenneth Zohore scored for Neil Warnock's side after Neal Maupay had opened the scoring for Brentford.

"We've still got 10 games to go and all we've done is give ourselves a chance", he said.

"We never got started and all of a sudden it was one of those bad evenings".

"All the boys are enjoying it, though".

Burton are in real trouble, having lost 2-0 at Sheffield United.

"Wolves have players who were playing in the Champions League last season and to now being in the Championship is a big call", added the 57-year-old. They made us come up from London when they said the game was on.

Nuno Espirito Santo's side were hammered by Aston Villa last Saturday in a 4-1 loss, which has seen their lead at the top of the Championship table cut to three points.

Efforts from Markus Henriksen, Harry Wilson and Jarrod Bowen have the Humberside club now nine points clear of the drop zone as they look to avert a second consecutive relegation.
