Wolves Reserves to play Liverpool tonight
Wolves play in the Premier Reserves League tonight against Northern team Liverpool. The match is played at Tranmere Rovers home ground Prenton Park at 7pm (only £4).
Wolves will as usual play with a core of youngsters from the Development team, but I suspect that Mick will curry it up with a couple of first team players who need playing time (and I was right, see below).
The Reserves has only played one match in the league so far – when they lost out to Everton – but they played pretty well. So now it’s time to take on the other Liverpool club. What can they expect?
Liverpool has played two draws so far in the Reserves League – against Newcastle and Wigan. So they will be looking for a win – but so will Wolves.
Liverpool have – like Everton – a very good Academy and plenty of good graduates to pick from. English starlets like Michael Roberts and Michael Ngoo and maybe the former Rangers player Danny Wilson. But there is one player in particular that the Wolves defence should look out for.
The 16-year-old starlet Suso (Jesús Joaquín Fernández Sáenz de la Torre) from Cadiz, Spain who came to the club this summer, but has already played a few minutes for Roy Hodgson’s first team in pre-season. He also played and scored for the Liverpool Reserves when they drew to Newcastle latest.
Sadly, Wolves young starlet in the Reserves team – 17-year-old Jake Cassidy (not so many names but much tougher ones in my opinion 😆) – from Wales will not play tonight. He is on international training camp with the Wales U19.
So bring on Liverpool. It will be a perfect game for our young lads to get some match training and a good night to take their first win in the League for the season.
WOLVES: Hennessey, Ebanks-Landell, Mouyokolo, Hill, Reckord, Doherty, Rooney, Harris, Milijas, Hemmings, Malone. SUBS: McCarey, Forde, Gorman, Mujangi-Bia.
