Wolves prospect Harkin scores twice in 4-0 win over WBA

Wolves grabbed the bragging rights over West Bromwich Albion at academy level with a 4-0 win away from home.

Lee Harkin helped himself to a brace while Christian Marques and Joe Hodge completed the scoring on a huge night for the young Wolves stars.

18-year-old Harkin was handed the opportunity to lead the line on the night and took his chance absolutely emphatically.

Luke Cundle was also playing, fresh from his taste of first team football, and that helped Wolves have a strong side to take on their local rivals.

Hodge was the 16th different under-23s player to add their name to the scoresheet for the season, having come on as a late substitute.

The result means that Wolves are now above West Brom in the Premier League 2 Division 2 table, which is more practically useful than the bragging rights.

That makes it four wins in a row for James Collins’ side and they are flying along now, sitting in fifth place in the table.

Harkin took his opportunity emphatically and will be looking to keep pressing on between now and the end of the season.
