Reserves Watch: Ebanks-Blake scores on free and Bennett shines

Wolves Reserves managed to get a draw against a Fulham Reserves team that has not lost in nine games now in Premier League Reserves Group South.

Reading the reports from both Wolves Official Site (HERE) and the Fulham Site (HERE) gives the impression that it was a fair result as far as how the game was outplayed. Both teams seem to have had a handful of chances to take the lead after first Fulham (56) and then Wolves (69) scored.

The fact that Ebanks-Blake scored Wolves goal could be important for the future, as he probably need all encouragement he can get in that department. He scored on a free kick, and according to the Fulham site it was a very well taken free. Vokes had a couple of chances to score as well.

But according to both reports Kyle Bennett was the player who had most chances. And he created chances for others as well from his winger position. He was only announced as a sub beforehand, but apparently he played from start. Mendez Laing came in after 70 minutes. Kyle Bennett was on trial at Leicester recently according to reports from that club.

I suggest that you look at the official sites for more detailed match reports if you are interested. Goodnight!


Fulham Reserves: Etheridge; Pantsil (Harris 64), Stoor, Toure, Briggs; Marsh-Brown, Milsom, Buchtmann, Smith; Uwezu (Payne 77), Hoesen. (Subs not used): Bettinelli, Pritchard, Pierre.

Wolves Reserves: McCarey; Davis, Griffiths, Dunleavy, Metcalf; Bennett, Castillo, Rooney, Winnall (Mendez-Laing 70); Vokes (Landell 90), Ebanks-Blake. (Subs not used): Gorman, Harris.

  1. I think it’s important that Sylvan scored.
    The fact that it was a free kick reminds me of his good form last season.
    Hopefully he can step it up in these last games, and hopefully next season.

  2. I thought bennett had been released.

  3. I thought Bennett had been released too, weird because I heard he was one of the best english schoolboys in britain a couple of years ago and how wolves were desperately trying to keep him. Put him in the team with Zele!

    • Probably some badreporting from a local rag at Leicester that I unfortunately thought to be accurate. But he was on trial there, probably with the chance to go out on loan for a couple of games as their winger Lloyd Dyer has been in doubt now for a couple of games, but have played despite of injury.

      I believe he is very talented as well. Maybe he can get some minutes next season. Zele is too young and not good enough (yet). But there are a couple of others with a chance for next season.

  4. Bennett has been told his contract won’t be renewed and he’s free to find another club, untill that happens he’s welcome to train and play for wolves to keep him in the shop window. The club felt that he hadn’t developed as they hoped and he’s to small to compete at the highest level. Shame really as i’ve a feeling this decision will come back to haunt us!

    • Aha. Thank you for the information, Lee!

      And, yes. I feel that Wolves should renew his contract. He has been the best player in Wolves for two Reserves games now and there are many small players in the Premier League. Jarvis is one for example.

  5. Totally agree.

    Lets face it the best player currently in the world is hardly 6 foot tall either!
