Wolverhampton - Wolves climbed out of the relegation zone as Mick McCarthy's side demolished 10-man Blackpool 4-0 at Molineux on Saturday.
McCarthy's men started the day at the foot of the table but Jamie O'Hara enhanced his status as the new cult hero of Molineux with his second goal in two games after Matt Jarvis's early strike.
A late double from substitute Sylvan Ebanks-Blake completed Wolves' biggest Premier League victory and, for only the second time in five months, the hosts are out of the bottom three.
Blackpool's hopes of a comeback had been wrecked just before half-time when DJ Campbell was given a straight red card for lashing out at Richard Stearman.
Wolves are finally out of the drop zone, albeit only on goal difference, and will be hoping Stoke can do them a favour by beating third bottom West Brom on Monday.
McCarthy had described this clash as "must-win" and made no attempt to downplay the importance of the encounter.
He was jumping with joy after just two minutes as Wolves made the perfect start.
Dave Edwards beat Alex Baptiste on the right to release Adam Hammill and the signing cleverly teed up Jarvis who made no mistake from ten yards.
Blackpool's hopes of clawing a way back in were wrecked by Campbell after he pushed Stearman in the face following a hard but fair challenge by the Wolves defender.
It was a stupid rush of blood to the head and telling that hardly any of his team-mates rushed up to dispute referee Neil Swarbrick's decision to brandish a straight red card.
Turning on his heels, Campbell made the short walk to the dressing room, with not so much as an apologetic acknowledgement towards Holloway just yards from him.
The home side had the ball in the back of the net on a second occasion, only for Swarbrick to adjudge George Elokobi had fouled Richard Kingson as he nodded the ball home.
Wolves moved further ahead nine minutes into the second period through the outstanding O'Hara.
The on-loan Tottenham midfielder had tested Kingson from distance barely 60 seconds before, but made no mistake with his second effort, finding the corner with a crisp drive.
O'Hara nearly added another late on from 25 yards before former Manchester United trainee Ebanks-Blake converted twice from close range to complete a chastening afternoon for Blackpool, whose own relegation fears are far from over yet.
