Wolverhampton Wanderers youngster Ryan Giles has made an instant impact on loan at Rotherham United.

The 21-year-old came off the bench to score on his debut at the Riverside Stadium, with the Millers running out 3-0 winners.

It was a superb performance from Paul Warne’s side, who have now reduced the gap between themselves and 21st-placed Derby Country down to just two points.

United have two games in hand on the Rams and will be hopeful of leapfrogging Wayne Rooney’s side.

Wolves youngster Giles was sent on in the 87th minute in place of Jamie Lindsay, and converted confidently through the legs of Boro goalkeeper Marcus Bettinelli shortly after his introduction.

It was a great moment for Giles, who is hoping for a strong finish to the 2020/21 season.

On the debutant, Warne said: “You can see why I’ve brought him here. He’s quick, he’s direct and he likes to run at people and he capped it off with a goal.”

The star enjoyed a good start to 2020/21 with Coventry City, but struggled for starts over the festive and New Year period.

Wolves took the decision to recall him, and decided Rotherham would be a good place for him to continue his development.

A fine start for Giles

It was a great finish from Giles, and hopefully now the talent can force his way into Warne’s starting XI.

He will have done his chances no harm at all, and if he knuckles down in training there is no reason why he can’t soon become a regular in South Yorkshire.
