Over 17,000 see Wolves beat Crawley in live Sky game

It's business as you would expect in Sky Bet League 1, with hot pre-season favourites, Wolves top of the league - albeit possibly only for 24 hours.

This after a Leigh Griffiths's injury-time penalty gave Wolves a dramatic victory just moments after Crawley forward Billy Clarke looked to have stolen a point.

Bjorn Sigurdarson headed Kevin Doyle's left-wing cross home on seven minutes and Wolves looked set for victory.

But Clarke drilled home from inside the area to level the scores before Kyle McFadzean was adjudged to have blocked Kevin McDonald's cross with his arm.

Griffiths lashed into the bottom corner to send Wolves top of League One.

Wolves still managed to attract a healthy looking crowd of 17,000 depsite the game being live on Sky TV and on a Bank Holiday Friday night. Former Millwall and Swansea boss Kenny Jackett was pleased with the win but still thinks his side have to improve to stay where they are.

Orient, Peterborough, or Wallsall can overhaul Wolves with a win on saturday so top spot may be short lived for at least another week.
