He skips past a mistimed challenge fromÂ Jahanbakhsh and gets a decent crossÂ into the box, but Burn gets in the way and makes the block.
Welbeck’s runs in behind are causing Wolves’ defenders all sorts of problems. At the other end, the hosts are far too static and are struggling to create opportunities.
Welbeck gets into a foot race with Coady and looks to have him beaten, but the Wolves skipper does well to muscle in front of him and give Patricio time to gather.
Leandro Trossard dinks a ball over the top to Welbeck, who knocks it down toÂ Neal Maupay in a good position.

Brighton almost score from two corners in quick succession, Dunk forcing Patricio to push a looping header onto the crossbar before Dan Burn blasts one straight at him.
Wolves have struggled since conceding the opener, with Brighton pouring forwardÂ in waves and looking far likelier to score.

Pascal Gross finds Welbeck in the box with a nice through ball, but he’s forced wide before he can get a shot away. Brighton keep the ball and win a corner.
Ben White does well to dispossess Podence, skip into space and freeÂ Jahanbakhsh, but the counter attack fizzles out.

Rayan Ait-Nouri makes a break down the left flank and picks outÂ Vitinha in the box, who forces Robert Sanchez to make a fingertip save.
While Brighton’s Premier League survival is all but assured, Potter has urged his side to make things certain this afternoon.
« It’s a big incentive, of course, » he tells the BBC. « That’s what we’re excited about, we want to try to win the game and it’s an opportunity for us to get three points, but against a good opponent. Nothing is straightforward, we have to fight for them. »
Asked in his pre-match interview whether there were aspects of Wolves’ performance against West BromÂ last week which he liked, Nuno says: « I think we played good.
« We were consistent in parts, we played really good offensively with good combinations. Let’s try to do it again. »
Potter has been forced to make one change to the team which beat Leeds last weekend, with Joel Veltman injured andÂ Alireza Jahanbakhsh filling in for him.
Nuno Espirito Santo has reshuffled the pack, making significant alterations to the team which drew 1-1 with West Brom last Monday.
Ki-Jana Hoever andÂ Max Kilman come into the back line inÂ place of Romain Saiss and Nelson Semedo,Â Joao Moutinho andÂ Morgan Gibbs-White come into midfield instead ofÂ Leander Dendoncker andÂ Owen Otasowie, while Daniel Podence is preferred to Adama Traore out wide.
Graham Potter believes Danny Welbeck is loving life at Brighton and is hopeful of keeping the former England forward at the Amex Stadium.
Welbeck has grown into an influential player for the Seagulls since arriving as a free agent in October but is out of contract in the summer.
The 30-year-old helped put Albion on the brink of Premier League safety with a fine individual effort to seal last weekend’s 2-0 win over Leeds.
Head coach Potter likened Welbeck’s enthusiasm to that of an « 18-year-old » ahead of Sunday’s trip to Wolves and is eager to prolong their working relationship.
« The goal that he scored against Leeds, we see pretty regularly in terms of how he can finish and his quality to affect the final third.
« He’s in a really good moment. He’s enjoying his football and in training he looks like he’s an 18-year-old, just influencing the game, influencing training, enjoying himself.Â I think that’s the most important thing.
« We will sit down at the end of the season and try and find the right solution but for me as a head coach, it’s about him enjoying his football. Does he feel comfortable here? Does he enjoy it? Are we getting the best out of him?
« If the answer is yes, then there’s a good chance in the summer we can find the right solution. »
Former Manchester United and Arsenal man Welbeck has scored three times in his last six outings and travels to Molineux seeking his 50th top-flight goal.
Even if Albion were defeated, safety would still be assured should West Brom fail to win at Arsenal on Sunday evening and Fulham lose at home to Burnley on Monday.
« That’s our motivation, to get back-to-back Premier League wins, to finish the job ourselves, to improve our points tally, » he said.
« [There are] lots of reasons to go up there and try and be as positive as we can.
« As I have said many times this season, our performances have been good, but we haven’t got the results we feel our performances should have got. That leaves us with a bit of frustration and I think it’s important that we got the points against Leeds.
