💬 Alfie Pond previews final Premier League Cup clash at Wolves

Young defender's pre-match thoughts

21 February 2022

Alfie Pond has given his pre-match thoughts as the Grecians' Premier League Cup competition comes to an end tomorrow, away to Wolves.

Unable to progress through the group stage, Dan Green's youngsters have only pride to play for when they head to Hednesford Town on Tuesday, and Pond sees it as an opportunity to once again face some of the country's best young players.

"For myself and some of the other young lads, it's been great to come up against some great Premier League sides," he said.

"It shows us what we'll be up against in the future. I don't think we've felt any pressure, but we have gone into every game wanting to win. But we can go out there tomorrow and express ourselves.

"Wolves and West Ham are two top sides. The way they keep and move the ball is second to none, but tomorrow we have to show what we're about. 

"Every game is a different opportunity."
