Wolves 0 Liverpool 3 (Glatzel 22', Dixon-Bonner 32', Glatzel 36')
Report by Ryan Plant
Wolves suffered a 3-0 defeat to Liverpool in the PLU18 North at Compton Park on Saturday.
After a 4-0 win against Middlesbrough in their last home league action, Darren Ryan's side struggled as the visitors pressed, conceding three first half goals.
Liverpool captain Paul Glatzel put Barry Lewtas’ side ahead midway through the first half, before Elijah Dixon-Bonner doubled their lead with a curled finish beyond Jackson Smith in the Wolves goal.
The hosts looked dangerous on the counter, particularly through Jadon Forrester, but Liverpool managed to add a third when Glatzel nodded in Rhys Williams’ overhead cross.
Ryan's side created a series of good chances in the second half, and were unlucky to not score after good chances for substitutes Dongde He and Conor Carty.
The hosts’ second-half display, against a strong Liverpool team, provided plenty of positives but it was the visitors to took home all three points.
MOMENT OF THE MATCH:
Substitute Dongde He was an immediate danger after coming on as a second-half substitute, and saw a shot narrowly miss at the near post after beating multiple Liverpool defenders with a twisting and turning run.
After the game, Ryan remained upbeat. He said: “In the second half, we built out through the midfield well. We competed more and we fought much better.
“We still have a few things to work on, but we have a week of training now to prepare.”
Following Saturday’s loss, Ryan’s side travel to Manchester City next week before facing their city rivals, Manchester United, seven days later.
