Liverpool continued their revival under Kenny Dalglish with a hard-fought 2-1 win over Wolves Saturday.

After defeats against Stoke and Tottenham, this was a much-needed victory for Liverpool who moved up to fifth place, six points behind leaders Manchester United.

The Reds took an early lead when Roger Johnson turned Charlie Adam's shot into his own goal.

Jose Enrique's long ball was converted by Luis Suarez for Liverpool's second before Wolves fought back in the second half.

Substitute Steven Fletcher fired home Stephen Hunt's cross after the break to half the deficit for Wolves but Mick McCarthy's side failed to add a second, despite dominating the last half-hour.

Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard, who returned against Brighton in midweek after six months out with a groin injury, replaced Suarez for the final 10 minutes.

"I think it deserved three points, although it was was difficult at times," Dalglish told reporters.

"They put us under a bit of pressure in the first half and then scored early in the second half which gave them a bit of momentum.

"We had a few headers and blocks to make but at the other end we broke away and hit the bar twice and their goalkeeper made an unbelievable save from Suarez."
