Morgan Gibbs-White scored his first ever Premier League goal for Wolves yesterday.

The young midfielder netted a 90th minute winner as the Old Gold turned it around to beat Brighton 2-1.

Lewis Dunk’s red card was the turning point of the game and from then on, there only looked like one winner.

Gibbs-White missed a clear chance before he actually scored, spooning over when Adama Traore squared it across the box.

But by scoring late, he became the youngest English scorer of a 90th minute Premier League winner since Marcus Rashford.

Speaking to the club’s website after the game, he said: ““It’s about time it’s come.

 

“I missed the first sitter, and I was devastated. For the second one I sort of composed myself, picked my spot of where I was going to hit the ball.

“Luckily enough it went in the back of the goal and gave the boys their three points which I’m delighted for.”

The closing matches of the season should see Gibbs-White and Wolves’ other young players get chances to impress.

It’s the perfect time to give them some more experience ahead of next season.

Gibbs-White will be pleased to have broken the hoodoo now and there’s no sweeter feeling than scoring a crucial goal for your side.

It’s an ever so slightly complicated and convoluted stat but being in the same company as an England international and one of the league’s most dangerous young forwards is never a bad thing.
