Striker Nouha Dicko scored twice to give Wolves’ promotion push a timely fillip with victory at Huddersfield.
Dicko fired under Alex Smithies after a through ball from Rajiv van La Parra and it was 2-0 when Conor Coady headed Bakary Sako’s corner into his own net after the break.
Benik Afobe’s strike made it 3-0 before James Vaughan got a goal back for the hosts from Sean Scannell’s cross.
Dicko made it 4-1 when he rounded Smithies to slot home in injury time.
It was a frustrating night for Chris Powell’s Huddersfield side after they created the better chances, with Coady’s own goal early in the second half proving a pivotal moment in the match.
The victory ended a run of three matches without a win for Kenny Jackett’s Wolves team and moved them to within four points of sixth-placed Brentford.
Huddersfield, 15th in the table, have won four and lost four of their last eight matches.
