Some Wolves fans have reacted on Twitter to Ryan Bennett and his performance against Reading.

Wolves beat the royals last night in the third round of the Carabao cup. They’ll now face Aston Villa away in the fourth round.

Nuno’s team didn’t deserve to beat Reading as they were again conservative and boring. With that being said, Ryan Bennett has received some praise for his performance in Conor Coady’s role.

“Ryan Bennett had a great game last night”

Nuno’s team didn’t perform exceptionally well last night and players like Jesus Vallejo have received criticism (HITC).

Bruno Jordao was the star of the match before being stretchered off, but Ryan Bennett was the most solid performer for the whole 90-minutes.

Wolves fans have fallen out of love with Bennett this season. He was blamed for the losses to Everton and SC Braga, and he was dropped for the 5-2 loss against Chelsea.

Now some fans are claiming that he is severely underrated and is used as a scapegoat. This is thanks to his performance against Reading where he passed the ball about exceptionally well.

 

Not only that, but he also struck home a penalty with the poise of a deadly striker.

Ryan Bennett does receive a lot of unwarranted criticism. At times it does feel as if it’s because he’s an old-fashioned defender instead of an expensive centre-back with a fancy name and bright boots.

He should definitely play for Wolves against Watford as Jesus Vallejo isn’t ready and Romain Saiss is a liability. And it’s a must-win match for both Wolves and the hornets.
