Wolves vs Athletic Club | U23 Match preview

After their first ever competitive European tie last week, Wolves under-23s make a quick return to the Premier League International Cup as they take on Athletic Club on Wednesday evening.

Hot on the heels of last week’s 1-1 draw with Paris Saint-Germain at Molineux, Mark Kennedy’s men will invite Athletic Club Bilbao to St George’s Park after the tie was moved from Telford’s New Bucks Head.

The Spanish outfit also played PSG in their first game of this season’s Premier League International Cup, going down 1-0 at Aldershot’s Recreation Ground, while Dan Csoka rescued a point for the Wolves development side after going behind in the first minute to Alexandre Fressange’s header.

350 tickets are now available for Wednesday evening’s match, priced at £4 for adults and £2 for children, and must be printed at home in advance from tickets.wolves.co.uk.

On preparing for Athletic Club

“The lads had Sunday off, deservedly so for their recent performances. They’re usual training programme is very full, so it’s good to be able to give them a day off.

“We’ve had a couple of training and recovery days where the players were pretty much wrapped up in cotton wool, while trying to implement the stuff we want them to do for Wednesday.”
