(Reuters) - Matt Doherty scored a fine winner as Wolverhampton Wanderers, setting a Premier League record when they were unchanged for their eighth match from the start of the season, won 1-0 at rainswept Crystal Palace on Saturday.

Right back Doherty struck after 56 minutes when he rifled in a shot from a tight angle between Wayne Hennessey and the near post as Wolves went a sixth match unbeaten and climbed to seventh with 15 points before Sunday's matches.

Palace almost equalised in the 70th minute but Rui Patricio made a reflex save from substitute Max Meyer’s superb volley and blocked Wilfried Zaha’s follow-up.

Wolves substitute Ivan Cavaleiro hit the bar 10 minutes from time in a counter-attack and Palace, on seven points from eight matches, are still looking for their first home league goal of the season.
