Wolves goalkeeper John Ruddy has been awarded the Championship Golden Glove trophy for the 2017/18 season.

The 31-year-old stopper - who left Norwich last summer - recorded his 24th shutout of the campaign on Saturday afternoon as the Championship winners were held to a goalless draw by Sheffield Wednesday.

The award comes as little surprise with Ruddy between the sticks behind a defence that has shipped just 36 goals in 45 league games on their way to the title, which they were presented with after the stalemate at Molineux.
