📝 Match Preview: Wolverhampton Wanderers U23 (H)

The Young Grecians second Premier League Cup test.

13 September 2021

Exeter City U23's continue their Premier League Cup campaign this Wednesday against Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The Grecians drew 1-1 last Tuesday with Swansea City to kick off the group stage, after Callum Rowe's strike from range cancelled out Dylan Morgan's goal for the Swans. Category One Academy Wolves offer another tough test for City, who go into the game on the back of an U18's loss against Cheltenham Town on the weekend. With more senior players elligible for this competition though, the Grecians can be quietly confident to build on last Tuesday's draw. 

Wolves opened their Premier League Cup with a 1-0 victory over West Ham United as Harry Birtwistle's strike seperated the sides. On the weekend the Black Country side returned to Premier League 2 action and drew with Burnley. Last season, Wanderers reched the semi-finals of PL2 and this term have started in the same push for promotion sitting in 6th. 

Dan Green's Thoughts

"Wolves will be different to Swansea in their own way but can play a similar style. One that we must be ready to adapt to.

"I would love the fans to come and watch one of these games. In six months, a year pehaps, the fans will get to say 'I remember that night, and and then remember their first team debut'.

"That's what creates the connections between the fans and our players are nights like this."
