Wolves can secure the League One title with a win today.
Wolves have condemned a minority of home supporters who took part in pitch invasions during today's game against Rotherham United. They say the referee was close to abandoning the game, which would have "nullified a tremendous victory".
In a post on their official website, the club said they " in the strongest possible terms, have today condemned the pitch incursions from some Wolves fans, which marred the club's 6-4 victory over Rotherham United".
They go on to say "Equally, Wolves would like to thank the vast majority of supporters who stayed off the pitch, and for voicing their disapproval at the minority who chose to enter onto the field of play towards the end of the game, and after the final whistle".
They also said "The minority of supporters have marred a classic game, played in a competitive spirit, and prevented the Wolves players from celebrating with the majority of home supporters in the stadium".
The club said they're now awaiting " an inevitable follow-up from the Football Association". They also thanked the Rotherham United supporters for their understanding and said they "wish them the best for the rest of their campaign".
