Mayor 'extremely proud' of Wolves' achievements

I am delighted that the club have accepted my offer to host a reception in honour of a wonderful season which has seen records broken and promotion as champions of League One.

We are all extremely proud of the team and everyone associated with the club, which is such a huge part of Wolverhampton life.

While we are all realistic about the challenges that lie ahead in the Championship, we all believe Wolves belong in the Premier League and I very much hope it won't be long before my successor in this role is toasting a return to the top flight.

A plea for fans to stay off the pitch at all the games. Vast majority have done the club proud all season. Let's finish on the right note.

Wolves fans are being urged to stay off the pitch ahead of their match at Leyton Orient today.

It follows a pitch invasion at Molineux on Good Friday, which the club said nearly led to the match against Rotherham United being abandoned.

Wolves can secure the League One title with a win today.
