The Wolves U23s have ran out 2-0 winners over Swansea City.

The team maintained their perfect start to their Premier League Cup campaign in South Wales.

It is nine points from nine, with Luke Cundle and Owen Hesketh grabbing the goals today.

Wolves had lost Conor Carty early on to injury, but James Collins’ side did well to adapt eventually.

After not really working Swans stopper Jamie Searle, the youngsters stepped things up in the second-half.

It was Hesketh who broke the deadlock, tapping in after Searle had failed to gather a cross from Jack Scott.

Lee Harkin had a couple of good opportunities to score, but it was Cundle who again ensured the points for Wolves, as he did last week against Birmingham City.

James Collins lavished praise on him after the game, saying he was ‘magnificent all night’.

 

He scored from the spot, after he had been fouled trying to go round Searle.

Wolves U23s back on track

Wolves got their first win in four games against Birmingham City last week.

And now they’ve followed that up with another victory over Swansea.

Hopefully, the team can go a run now.

And it is good to see Cundle scoring in back-to-back games.

The Wolves first-team squad needs a midfielder who has a goal in him.

Fans will expect the board to go out in January and land Bruno Lage someone who can do that.

But Cundle, who has made a number of Lage’s matchday squads this term, can certainly stake a claim.
