Davis praises Roberts' weekend goal and performance

Wolves teenager Tyler Roberts found the net in the Under-18s 4-2 defeat against Manchester United on Saturday.

Steve Davis’ side lost the Premier League Cup Group F clash against the Red Devils, but Roberts caught the eye.

Davis told the club website he was impressed with Roberts’ goal, in his newer right wing position, having been fielded through the middle before.

“‘Tinks’ had an impact for both of the goals, winning the penalty which Ethan put away after being saved, but he got there first to put it back in the net, then scoring an excellent goal himself,” said Davis of Roberts.

“It was a great switch from Mason [Rees] across the pitch to the edge of the box, wide on the right, and he cut inside the lad and bent it in with his left foot. It was a great goal.

“I was really pleased with the impact Tinks had in the game, and he’s just gone on and replicated what he did in one of the previous games where he put it into the top corner with his left foot.

“He seems to be enjoying it down the right-hand side more so than when he plays down the middle, as he can have an impact in the games, and he certainly changed the game for us in the second-half.”

Roberts showed two good feet to cut inside from the right and fire home on Saturday.

His teammate James Storer went viral after absolutely incredible quintuple save in the same game.

There is talent coming through the ranks at Wolves and Roberts will look to carry on impressing.
