    • Everton
    • - Don't forget you can watch highlights of this match, along with every Premier League game, from 00:01 on Monday morning (UK only).
    • 90+2' The final whistle goes, and Everton's unbeaten run sretches to six games while Wolves lost for the second time on the spin and remain int he bottom three.
    • 90' The fourth official signals two minutes of added time.
    • 88' The last time Everton won by three goals away from home came in a 3-0 victory at Watford in February 2007. Their biggest ever league away victory was 4-0 at West Ham in February 2000. (Infostrada)
    • 86' Everton defend another Wolves corner well. The nullifying of Wolves' major strong point has been the key to what looks like will be the securing of a first away clean sheet in 12 league games.
    • 85' The raft of substitutions, plus the foregone conclusion, mean the impetus has largely gone out of this game as we enter the final five minutes.
    • 83' Everton substitution: Youngster Adam Forshaw replaces Bilyaletdinov.
    • 82' Wolves substitution: Adam Hammill replaces Fletcher.
    • 81' The ball runs across the Wolves area and Bilyaletdinov must score... He miscues his strike from six yards out and then skies his second attempt! From the sublime to the ridiculous from the Russian.
    • 79' Bilyaletdinov's corner is well over everyone. To be fair, Everton hardly committed anyone forward for that set piece.
    • 78' Anichebe's efforts win Everton their fifth corner of the game.
    • 77' Lovely jinking run into the box from Osman before he is tackled by Berra. The Everton player wants a corner, but a goal kick is given.
    • 76' Wolves substitution: Nenad Milijas replaces Guedioura.
    • 75' Guedioura is penalised for a strong but fair block on Baines. No complaints from the Everton man, but the linesman flags for a foul.
    • 73' Everton substitution: Apostolos Vellios replaces Beckford, who doesn't look happy to come off the field!
    • 72' Fletcher jumps with Howard, and the keeper drops the bal. The American grabs it back, but the foul would have been given in any case.
    • 71' Howard punches clear. O'Hara puts in a cross that gets caught under Berra's feet. The Scotsman went for the backheel flick, but didn't get the right connection on it.
    • 70' Jarvis gets the better of Hibbert, but Jagielka halts his progress with a good tackle. Wolves get a corner though.
    • 68' Wolves’ heaviest home defeat this season was also against Merseyside opposition – losing 3-0 to Liverpool on January 22. (Infostrada)
    • 67' Good tackle from Stearman on Beckford, who had little in way of support at that point. Everton win a free-kick in midfield.
    • 66' After a decent bout of possession for Wolves, Everton have them pegged back. Beckford is free in the box, but he was offside as the flink-on came to him.
    • 65' Everton substitution: Victor Anichebe replaces Gueye.
    • 64' Heitinga clears the next croner and Everton come forward. Beckford, Gueye, Bilyaletdinov and Osman and are in the attack, but they can't find the final ball.
    • 63' Some real pressure from Wolves now as they win a string of corners. Jarvis's delivery swings in and takes a nick off Jagielka as it flies through the pack.
    • 61' O'Hara gets ahead of his marker and gets his header on target... Another quality stop from Howard! That was made all the more difficult by Stearman standing right in front of the keeper.
    • 60' The ball is played across to Karl Henry, whose solid strike brings a great save from Howard! Corner to Wolves.
    • 59' Beckford tries to hold the ball up, but Foley steps in and passes calmly back to Hennessey. Everton are cruising at the moment.
    • 58' Everton have gone 11 games without a clean sheet away from home in the Premier League. (Opta)
    • 57' Wolves seeing plenty of the ball, but Everton seem happy to defend their three-goal lead.
    • 55' Fletcher is caught offside. The striker is looking pretty isolated since Wolves lost Ebanks-Blake, who apparently went off at half-time complaining for a hamstring problem. More problems for McCarthy, who already has Kevin Doyle out for the rest of the campaign.
    • 54' Only four times in Premier League history have a team come from 3-0 down to win a Premier League match – one was Wolves at Molineux. They won 4-3 at home to Leicester City in October 2003 after they were 3-0 down. (Infostrada)
    • 53' Everton defend the set piece well and they get a goal kick.
    • 52' The free-kick comes in and the ball comes off Hibbert's arm. The referee rightly rules it was ball to hand, and Wolves will have to make do with a corner.
    • 51' O'hara tries to steer the free-kick low and around the wall, but Everton can clear. The visitors try to break but Bilyaletdinov gets the game's first booking for a late tackle.
    • 50' Distin heads away O'hara's cross and Jarvis is denied another chance to cross by Hibbert. a good spell for Wolves here yields a free-kick after Heitinga fouls Fletcher.
    • 49' Jarvis tussles with Hibbert and wins the battle, but Howard hacks away the loose ball.
    • 48' Plenty of play in the centre of the park, but no one has yet taken control of the match after the break.
    • 46' The second half is underway!
    • HT Wolves substitution: Michael Kightly replaces Ebanks-Blake at half-time. Wolves will switch to 4-5-1 for the second half. After making an appearance off the bench last week at Newcastle, this is only the injury-plagued Kightly's second appearance since November 2009.
    • 45+3' Wolves have one last shot at grabbing a goal back before the break with a free-kick some 20 yards from goal. O'Hara fires it over, and the whistle blows for half-time.
    • 45+1' Bilyaletdinov's first goal since January has Wolves staring at the abyss. Can they mount a heroic comeback to salvage a point in the second half?
    • 45' GOAL!! A mix-up in midfield by Wolves allows Bilyaletdinov to roam forward and lash a thunderous, swerving strike past Hennessey! What a strike!
    • 44' Great stat from Opta Jo on Twitter: "3634 - Phil Neville's goal was his first away from home in the Premier League since 28th April 2001; 3634 days ago. Wait." Follow OptaJoe
    • 43' A succession of corners and throw-ins rain into the Wolves area. Half-time can't come quick enough for the home side.
    • 41' Neville's goal, by the way, is his first since December 2007, and only the 12th of his entire career!
    • 40' Almost three! Gueye beats the offside trap and bursts into the box. He can't get a clean shot away and Hennessey saves! Wolves all over the place now.
    • 39' GOAL!! Hennessey makes an excellent reaction save after the ball ricochets off Elokobi. Beckford plays it back to Neville who fires in a cracking strike from the edge of the box! The Everton skipper celebrates a rare goal with a bit of Cahill-style shadow boxing by the corner flag!
    • 38' Guedioura chases Leighton Baines to the corner flag and makes a needless challenge. Everton have a free-kick by the byline.
    • 36' O'Hara hits a low bending shot from range which takes a deflection on its way through. Corner to Wolves. The ball ping-pongs inside the six-yard box but Osman and Jagielka make vital blocks.
    • 35' This is the most sustained spell of Everton pressure so far in this match.
    • 33' Osman swings in a free-kick from the right which is glanced wide by an Everton head. Beckford is complaining that he was being held by his marker, but it's a goal kick.
    • 32' Osman turns past Kevin Foley far too easily out wide and bends in an inviting cross. Beckford loses Stearman and gets his header on target... Saved well by Hennessey! Beckford headed it down into the ground and the Wales keeper palmed it away.
    • 31' Fletcher tries to get past Jagielka wide on the left, but the England centre-back puts in a solid tackle.
    • 30' Wolves' frenetic tempo has subsided somewhat in the last five minutes. Everton seeing a lot more of the ball now.
    • 28' Jagielka sends a decent ball down the channel for Beckford to chase. Christophe Berra comes across to intercept at the expense of a throw.
    • 27' Neville concedes another corner. Wolves have plenty of bodies in the box. The ball comes in, but the referee orders it to be retaken after some argy-bargy between Ebanks-Blake and Johnny Heitinga.
    • 26' Beckford's goal was Everton’s 12th Premier League header of the season – only Manchester United (15 goals) and Newcastle United (13 goals) have scored more headers. (Infostrada)
    • 25' It looks like O'Hara has been given a bloody nose. He will have to change shirts before he is allowed back on.
    • 24' O'Hara is felled by an aerial challenge from Diniyar Bilyaletdinov. The Russian really clattered him. just a stern talking-to from the referee, no card.
    • 23' Nice build-up from Wolves on the edge of the box. Jarvis plays it to Guedioura who bends a shot just the worng side of the far post! So close from the Algerian.
    • 22' Beckford's ninth goal of the season has come very much against the run of play. How often have we seen this from Wolves this season?
    • 21' GOAL!! After all that Wolves dominance, Everton take the lead! Osman bends in a great cross and Beckford runs in ahead of Hennessey to head past the keeper!
    • 20' Again Ebanks-Blake goes chasing after a long ball. This time Distin gets in ahead of him and tidies up.
    • 19' Guedioura tries to bamboozle his man with a stepover but ends up tripping over the ball. The ALgerian is making his first appearance in six months after breaking his leg, so give him some slack.
    • 18' Ebanks-Blake chases a loose ball into the box. He tangles with Phil Jagielka and goes down... Referee Phil Dowd is well placed, and waves away the appeals. Ebanks-Blake went down in instalments there!
    • 17' Both first and second balls are blocked, and Everton will have to be happy with a throw-in. Again Neville slings it in, and again Hennessey catches with authority. How Everton are missing Tim Cahill.
    • 16' Jermaine Beckford wins a free-kick, and Everton have a moment to breathe before Osman sends it into the Wolves box.
    • 15' So far, just eight per cent of the possession has been in the Wolves final third! The home side need to make this dominance count.
    • 14' Wolves have scored in the first 20 minutes in each of their last three matches at Molineux. (Infostrada)
    • 13' Jarvis gets to the byline and pulls the ball back across the area, but no one in a gold shirt can get on the end of it.
    • 12' Ebanks-Blake capitalises on a mistake in the Everton defence and surges forward. He holds the ball up well before squaring to O'Hara, but the chipped pass into the box takes a deflection and Everton survive.
    • 11' O'Hara tries to pick out Fletcher at the far post, but it's a big ask for the Scotland striker to get his head to that and send it back across goal. Goal kick to Everton.
    • 10' Another decent corner by Jarvis, but this time Everton fully clear their lines. The visitors need to slow the tempo here. They are struggling to live with Wolves at the moment. Sylvain Distin clumsily barges Fletcher over. Another good set piece opportunity here for Wolves.
    • 9' Before this match, Everton had seen more shots cleared off the line by defenders than any other team (12). Not sure that Osman's block counts as being on the line, but it was a vital clearance.
    • 8' O'Hara gets in another volley in from the edge of the box... That one was much lower, but still over. He's finding his range.
    • 7' Steven Fletcher leaps highest and gets his header on target... Cleared by Leon Osman! Yet another corner for Wolves.
    • 6' A rare misplaced pass from Neville puts Everton uner pressure. Tony Hibbert is hounded down and the pressure yields another Wolves corner.
    • 5' Sylvain Ebanks-Blake makes the ground up as he tries to charge down Tim HOward's clearance, but the Everton keeper hoofs it clear.
    • 4' This time the corner if loated to the edge of the box for Jamie O'Hara to volley... Connected well, but it flies over the bar. Great start from Wolves.
    • 3' The delivery is headed out for a throw. The tank that is George Elokobi hurls it in and it drops for Adlene Guedioura on the edge of the box... The shot is blocked bravely by Neville! Another Wolves corner.
    • 2' Phil Neville launches in a long throw which Wolves keeper Wayne Hennessey plucks out of the air. Hennessey boots it long and Matt Jarvis wins a corner.
    • 1' Everton kick off and we're underway!
    • 12:42 The teams are striding out on to Molineux turf on this sun-kissed afternoon to the glorious sound of Fanfare for the Common Man. We'll be underway shortly...
    • 12:40 Pre-match, Wolves striker Kevin Doyle insists his team has its fate in its own hands. With May fixtures against fellow strugglers Birmingham (away), West Brom (home) and a final-day clash at Molineux against Blackburn, he has a point. Wolves fixtures
    • 12:35 Today's referee is Phil Dowd. The Stoke-on-Trent official has shown eight red cards in the Premier League this season, including Wolves' Christophe Berra in September's 2-1 defeat at Fulham and Everton's Marouane Fellaini in November's 1-1 draw at home to Bolton.
    • 12:30 McCarthy has never won in four Premier League matches against Everton as a manager (3 draws, 1 defeat). He has never won in five previous league home matches against Merseyside opposition. BUT... David Moyes has never won in both Premier League visits to Molineux – Everton losing 2-1 (May 2004) and drawing 0-0 (March 2010). Surely something has to give today?
    • 12:25 Wolves winger Matt Jarvis has attracted plenty of attention this season, and his fine form landed him a senior England debut against Ghana recently. In his own inimitable style, manager Mick McCarthy said: "He is far too valuable to us. If anyone comes knocking at my door they will get a custard pie." Paper Round: McCarthy warns of custard pie attack
    • 12:20 For Everton, Seamus Coleman, Jack Rodwell (both ankle) and Tim Cahill (foot) are all out and Victor Anichebe, injured on recent international duty, is the most experienced player in yet another youthful Everton bench. Playmaker Mikel Arteta (hamstring) remains on the sidelines while Louis Saha and Marouane Fellaini are long-term absentees. Magaye Gueye and Apostolos Vellios could get further opportunities after making their Premier League debuts against Aston Villa last week. Everton team page
    • 12:20 Wolves striker Steven Fletcher has been passed fit for this game. Fletcher missed part of training this week with a slight calf problem but has recovered and starts. Kevin Doyle (knee), Ronald Zubar (back) and Dave Edwards (back) remain long-term casualties and Stephen Hunt's hopes of being involved in the run-in suffered a setback with him requiring hernia surgery - but Adlene Guedioura is back following six months out of action and makes the first XI.

    • 12:10 HEAD-TO-HEAD: Wolverhampton Wanderers and Everton have met 119 times in the league. Wolves have won 41, Everton 55 and 23 draws. Wolves are unbeaten in their last four Premier League matches against Everton, drawing the last three. Their only Premier League defeat was 2-0 at Goodison Park in their first ever Premier League meeting.
    • 12:05 Mick McCarthy's Wolves will move out of the bottom three with a win on this sunny lunchtime. They would move up to 14th ahead of the weekend's other fixtures. Everton, safely sitting in seventh, would move just one point behind local rivals Liverpool with a victory in the Midlands today. Premier League table
