Stoke Hit For Six

Kids bounce back to form.

After a five game League run that yielded just one point, the Academy under 18s bounced back to form with a resounding 6-1 victory over Stoke City in the Potteries.

Wolves enjoyed the better of the opening exchanges but it was City that took the lead.

Coach Mick Halsall said: “This was a very good performance. The team started well creating three very good chances against a Stoke side that was very competitive and well organised early in the game. 

“After creating three decent chances, we went a goal down from a second phase set play when we did not deal with a long ball to the back post.

“The players responded really well as they took control of the game and dominated the rest of the half scoring four goals with two coming from Ibrahim Keita, and one apiece from Bradley Reid and Carlo Erdei. 

“We went on to score two more with Reid scoring another and Jesse Deevers converting a penalty after being taken down in the box when going through.

“At times particularly in the first half the players produced some good flowing football looking to play out from the back when it was correct to do so. 

“In last week’s game against Manchester United, I thought we should have got something from it even though we didn’t produce too many clear cut opportunities. But this display was much more positive and productive as an attacking performance.”
