Wolves youngster Hugo Bueno can be very proud of his full debut against Crystal Palace

Wolves fell to a 2-1 defeat against Crystal Palace in the Premier League last night.

Wanderers took the lead through a rare goal from Adama Traore, and had seemed in a good position to go and get something from the game.

But the Eagles got the equaliser very early in the second-half through Ebere Eze.

And then it was mostly Palace attacking Wolves, who were seemingly looking to counter.

Wilfried Zaha then put the hosts ahead after a great ball from Eze through to Odsonne Edouard. The striker squared for the Ivorian who made no mistake with the finish.

Wolves showed a bit more attacking threat than in recent weeks gone by.

But they were still way short of the standards needed.

Overall, it was a very disappointing result, considering Wolves did take the lead.

But one of the biggest positives to take was the performance of young Hugo Bueno.

He was named as a surprise starter, after getting his first minutes for the first-team against Forest last weekend.

He got the nod over Jonny Castro Otto, and was largely excellent on his full debut.

He was a constant outlet for Wolves, and he did a decent job defensively on the whole against the tricky Michael Olise.

Unfortunately, he might have done better to stop Olise’s cross for Eze on the equaliser. Showing him onto his strong left foot was a reminder his inexperience.

But overall, Bueno can be proud of his performance. He was especially good going forwards. And his cross for Adama was absolutely excellent.

Yes, he may have done a little better on the equalising goal.

But Bueno can be very proud of his display against Palace. He certainly didn’t look out of place.

From this, there is no reason why Bueno can’t now push for more first-team minutes.

He proved himself capable.

And it’s good because Wolves could do with one more full-back they can count on.
