Wolves are taking on Leeds United in the Carabao Cup tomorrow night – and Chem Campbell should be considered for a first start.

The club are looking to progress to the next round, and also get revenge on Leeds for the 2-1 defeat on the opening day of the season in the Premier League.

The Whites are coming into the game having just beaten Liverpool and Bournemouth.

Wanderers are in woeful for, having one just one of their last eight in the Premier League.

Steve Davis is taking his penultimate game before stepping aside for Julen Lopetegui, who will be in the stands at Molineux for Saturday’s game with Arsenal.

The interim manager will be hoping to sign off with a couple of positive results, and he’ll likely be ringing the changes to keep things fresh.

Someone he should consider turning to tomorrow night is Chem Campbell, who has found first-team minutes hard to come by so far this term.

Being a young player, he is currently quite far down the pecking order.

But Wolves’ forwards have been poor this season, and it feels as though this might be a game for him.

When he has come on in games this season, Campbell – whom James Collins describes as ‘a very talented boy’ – has looked quite lively.

He’s not yet started a game for the first-team since making his debut against Newcastle United last season. But Davis should now consider putting his faith in him, just as he has done recently with Hugo Bueno.

Campbell regularly tears it up for the U21s, and he’s just trying to make that breakthrough now for the first-team.

It is difficult for him with so many other attacking players on the books.

But it’s surely time he got handed a start for Wanderers given the lack of output in the final third.

The Carabao Cup represents a good opportunity for him to come in and play from the beginning.

He perhaps has a better chance than ever with Davis still at the helm.
