Wolves Under-23s coach Rob Edwards has urged his side to return to winning ways as they seek to cement their place at the top of Premier League 2 with today’s trip to Newcastle (12 noon ko).
Wolves went top following a 3-1 win against promotion rivals Southampton at Molineux a week last Monday, only to suffer defeat to Derby in the Premier League Cup last weekend.
Edwards and his squad head to Blue Flames Ground (Northumberland FA), Newcastle knowing they face a tough task to maintain their position.
Newcastle are one of the form teams after seven wins in their last nine PL2 matches, while also making it into the quarter finals of the Premier League Cup.
“The lads have been very consistent, putting in good performances all season, and we’ve got to recapture that following a disappointing result against Derby, and get focused and ready for a real big push in the league,” said Edwards.
“We need to take the momentum and the positives from the ending of last week’s game into Newcastle.
“It’s nice to be top of the table, but it’s not over yet. There are still four games to go and they’re really tough games as well.
“We’ve just got to continue to work hard, continue to work the way we do every single day, stay together as a team and hopefully we can achieve something this season.”
After today’s fixture, Wolves Under-23s have three games left to finish their season, away to Aston Villa on Monday, April 8, Stoke at Molineux on Monday, April 15 (7pm) and away to Manchester United on Friday, April 26.
