Wolves begin their campaign with a 2-1 win away at Ewood Park.

Wolves have begun their campaign with a 2-1 win over Blackburn at Ewood Park.

Rovers took the lead in the 19th minute courtesy of Mauro Formica but a Steven Fletcher header levelled the scoreline three minutes later.

Stephen Ward put the visitors ahead two minutes into the second half, while Kevin Doyle - returning from injury to start for Wolves - failed to convert a penalty. Doyle spent most of the game sporting a large bandage after suffering a head injury early on.

Wolves host Fulham at Molineux next Sunday, while Blackburn travel to the Midlands to face Villa on Saturday.
