Wolves crowned League One Champions

[gallery]Wolves this afternoon took the League One title as Brentford failed to beat MK Dons.


Wolves were confirmed as League One champions after a late Izale McLeod equaliser for MK Dons denied Brentford the win they needed to stay in the title race.

Kenny Jackett's side recorded a 3-1 victory away at Leyton Orient in the earlier kick-off which now takes their season points tally to 99 - two points behind the league record of 101.

Wolves picked up 30 wins on their way to silverware and have lost only five games all season.

On their route to the title, Wolves broke their all-time club record of consecutive wins when they beat Swindon on March 11th. It was their ninth win in a row - a run that started against Preston in January.

Kenny Jackett introduced a new cluster of players to Wolves in the Summer of 2013 including Sam Ricketts and Kevin McDonald before agreeing loan deals for Michael Jacobs and James Henry.

Both Henry and Jacobs sealed permanent moves to Molineux in January as Jackett continued to build his new look squad. Strikers Nouha Dicko and Leon Clarke re-joined the club and the club made a move to build for the future when they signed young defender Kortney Hause from Wycombe Wanderers.

Dicko netted his first hat-trick on Good Friday against Rotherham and came close when Wolves beat Port Vale at Molineux only to see his penalty saved by Vale keeper Chris Neal.

Wolves secured promotion against Crewe with a 2-0 victory but had to wait until Easter Monday to secure the title.
