Wolves U23s player Ollie Tipton has heaped praise on his teammate Luke Cundle, was scored a brilliant goal last week.

The team were in action against Birmingham City, and ran out 2-1 winners at St Andrew’s.

The Blues actually took the lead in the game despite going down to 10 men inside nine minutes.

They scored via the penalty spot, but Wolves got a spot-kick of their own after a handball.

Tipton was the man to convert, and the teenager was delighted to make an impact in a derby.

He said: β€œIt means a lot to score in a derby. One day, hopefully it will be in front of the fans.”

Wolves were able to take all three points thanks to a stunning winner from midfielder Luke Cundle.

The 19-year-old exchanged passes with Jack Hodnett before unleashing a curling effort into the far corner.

That topped off a fine display from the starlet, and James Collins praised him heavily afterwards.

 

Tipton has also given a glowing verdict of Cundle.

He said: β€œIt was an unreal goal. I thought he was really good tonight. He really stepped up and it was a great goal as well.

β€œHe’s playing his best football at the minute, he’s doing really well, and hopefully he’ll get his chance soon with the first-team.”

Luke Cundle must keep head down and first-team chance could come

Luke Cundle is one of the best prospects at Molineux at the moment.

Bruno Lage will be very familiar with him given he is a regular trainer with the first-team and often makes his matchday squads.

Cundle could well have his eye on a first-team chance, especially given the lack of central midfield options.

He just needs to keep his head down, and keep shining in those U23s games.

Depending on the situation towards the end of the season, he may well get a couple of opportunities head and there, as Theo Corbeanu did last term under Nuno Espirito Santo.
