David Jones' solitary strike lifted Wolves out of the relegation zone as his first Barclays Premier League goal of the season sealed a 1-0 win over Tottenham.
The midfielder started the move which resulted in him side-footing home a cross from Matt Jarvis in the 27th minute and Wolves could also have had a penalty when Michael Dawson clipped Jarvis in the first half.
Tottenham's best chance fell to Niko Kranjcar before they had gone behind but he shot too close to goalkeeper Marcus Hahnemann.
The hosts took the lead with the simplest of goals which came out of nowhere in the 27th minute. Jones played the ball out to Jarvis on the left and continued his run to side-foot home the cross first time from 15 yards.
Jarvis almost added the second when he cut in on to his right foot and drilled in a shot which goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes turned around the near post.
The visitors stepped up the pressure in the final 10 minutes but Wolves soaked it all up to register back-to-back home clean sheets in the league for the first time in the campaign.
