Under 23s boss Collins hails Wolves teenager Cundle

Wolves midfielder Luke Cundle captained the club’s Under 23 side against Burnley on Friday.

He found the back of the net as James Collins’ side drew 1-1 in the Premier League 2 clash.

That performance earned Cundle rave reviews with some Wolves supporters on Twitter.

And Collins has spoken to the club’s official website about how impressed he was with the 19-year-old midfielder.

“I have to say that Luke Cundle’s been magnificent for me and for us since last season and into this season,” said Collins.

“I thought he looks like a real talent and a real good footballer. When we went behind, you need those players and those types of characters to say, ‘Come on’.

“Someone’s got to pull you and tug you back into the game, and that’s what he did. It wasn’t just Luke, but I thought Luke really drove it and got the goal his performance deserved.

“I’m looking forward to when Harvey Griffiths is really at his peak fitness; him, Owen [Hesketh], Cundle linking together is a good sight.”

Cundle was on the bench for Wolves’ first three Premier League matches of the season.

He didn’t get on in any of them, but he did make a brief cameo in the EFL Cup 4-0 thrashing of Nottingham Forest.

Now Bruno Lage’s bench is looking stronger, perhaps Cundle will be more heavily involved with the under 23 side.

It was certainly an impressive performance on Friday night, and Cundle will be hoping to be ready if the senior side do call on him.
