FORMER Dundee United defender Barry Douglas inspired Wolves to a 2-0 win over Fulham on Friday night.
And the 28-year-old Glaswegian was hailed by dejected Craven Cottage boss Slavisa Jokanovic.
Douglas, who agreed a two-year deal following his £1.35million move from Turkish outfit Konyaspor in the summer, set up the first-half goals for Romain Saiss and Leo Bonatini.
And Jokanovic, whose side have not won in their last five outings, said: “The delivery for both goals was fantastic.
“Wolves showed their quality. They created the first chance and scored the first goal, then did the same in a similar situation for the second.
“They didn’t give us any opportunities and they controlled the game. The international break will be very good as we must reflect on our situation and be ready for the next challenge.”
Douglas put in a Man of the Match performance that saw the Midlands side cement their place at the top of the Championship.
The left-back, who has also played for Queen’s Park and Polish team Lech Poznan, produced a near-post corner-kick for Saiss to head home in the ninth minute.
The Scot swung in an inviting free-kick 17 minutes later and Bonatini applied the finishing touch for his sixth successive league game.
Delighted Molineux Head Coach Nuno Espirito Santo said: “Douglas’ free-kicks are one of the things we work on, but the game goes beyond those situations and I think we created enough of them to score.
“I’m happy with the result and the performance.
“For a third game in a week it was incredible. There was no time to totally recover and for the boys go and work the way they did must make us proud.”
