Theo Corbeanu should get first senior minutes this weekend for Wolves

Wolverhampton Wanderers are in action against Burnley this weekend, and are looking to make it three straight victories for the first time this season.

It’s been a season of frustration for the club in 2020/21, but there is potential to finish the campaign in the right way.

Sunday’s game against the Clarets offers Wolves the chance to do something they’ve not done all season in winning three matches in a row, and confidence should be high after back-to-back clean sheets.

One man Nuno Espirito Santo should be thinking about giving minutes to is youngster Theo Corbeanu.

He included him in the matchday squad against Sheffield United but didn’t use him in the end, but with the club now 14 points clear of relegation, perhaps Corbeanu will actually get a chance on Sunday.

He is fresh off the back of another good performance for the U23s.

The starlet was heavily involved in the 1-1 draw with West Bromwich Albion on Monday, and played a key role in Conor Carty’s second-half goal.

The teenager went close to scoring himself before that, fizzing an effort towards the far corner from the edge of the box that was well saved by Ted Cann.

He’s ready and there’s no jeopardy

Corbeanu is such a talent, and it just feels like now is the time for Nuno to start getting him involved.

The threat of relegation is no more and so the time for experimentation is now.

With Pedro Neto sidelined, surely there is even more reason to give him a go.
