Carlisle United vs Wolves | U21 Match preview

Wolves under-21s get their Trophy campaign underway on Tuesday evening with a long trip north to take on Carlisle United at Brunton Park.

Rob Edwards’ side return to the competition for a second consecutive season after falling out at the group stage phase in 2018/19 on goals scored after their goal difference matched that of second-placed Lincoln City.

As well as travelling to The Cumbrians, who currently sit 18th in League Two with three wins to their name, the young Wolves side will also visit Morecambe and Blackpool as they look to make it into the knockout stages of the cup.

On fighting back twice against Arsenal

“We’ve shown that the week before, going 1-0 down to Man City and then came back to win, so it’s great to be showing the character and quality to do that.

“I was really pleased with our goals. I felt we showed very good control and some real good patience, but with finishes at the end of it.”

On busy week for the development squad

“We’ve got a lot of important games this week; whether the players are involved with the first-team [in the Carabao Cup] or not, that’s the manager’s decision. We would love it, but it’s up to the gaffer.

“We’ve got Carlisle and Southampton, two fantastic games, and the players have put in some fantastic performances recently and that’s all we can ask for – because off the back of positive performances, you usually get results.”
