Roberts believes Wolves can win the FA Youth Cup

Wolves progressed to the next round of the FA Youth Cup by beating Salford City 4-1 at Molineux earlier this week.

Despite the thumping victory, manager Steve Davis told the club website he was not fully satisfied with the performance.


Tyler Roberts scored twice on the night and also conceded that his performance and that of the team could have been better.

Davis said: “I was a bit of a party pooper after because I don’t think we played as well as we could have. We found some parts of the game quite difficult, playing against a team which sat off us first-half – I thought we could have made more of the ball.”

“We’ve got to be better. I don’t think we were as good as we can be with the talent we’ve got in the dressing room. They know that, if they’re honest, and there’s more to come. We’ll try work on the things we can be better at.”

Roberts added: “We were a bit sloppy at times, we brought our levels down due to the fact we were up quite early, and by quite a margin. In the next round, we need to up our standards, because it may not work against a higher level team.

“I was glad I got the goals; I feel like it boosted my performance. I could have been better in other areas, but obviously the goals help the team to get the win – that’s the main thing.”

Despite that, Roberts was bullish about Wolves chances of going all the way, saying: “I think we can win it. I think we’ve got the team, the depth, the squad – everything to be able to win this competition so hopefully we do.”

Roberts signed his first professional Wolves deal last month and has now followed that up with a brace at Molineux, so it is fair to say things are going well for him right now.

But his attitude shows through here; he wants more from himself and the team and also has designs on going all the way and lifting the trophy.
