Under-21s to take on Wolves

3 November 2014

Rovers Under-21s are back on the road this evening when they take on Wolverhampton Wanderers at Telford's New Bucks Head Stadium.

Eric Kinder's young side travel to Shropshire looking to get another three points on their travels following back-to-back league draws.

After holding a strong Arsenal side to goalless draw at Boreham Wood, the development squad showed good battling qualities last Monday night to twice come from behind against West Bromwich Albion to earn a point in a entertaining 2-2 draw at Leigh Sports Village.

Whilst Rovers' Under-21s have drawn their last two, this evening's opponents Wolves have lost their previous two outings.

Last Tuesday they went down 2-1 to Aston Villa, the week before they tasted defeat in a 3-1 loss at home to Derby County.

With the first team in league action at Millwall on Tuesday evening, Kinder has named a youthful squad. With just Connor Mahoney and substitute Paulo Jorge with any first team experience for Rovers.

WOLVES: Flatt, Iorfa, O’Hanlon, Weeks, Swan, Carter, Reid, Torras, Keita, Ronan, Hunte.

Subs: Matinyadze, Dutton, Erdei, Leacock-McLeod, Enobakhare

ROVERS: Crump, Carson, Doyle, Tanner, Lavelle, Daly, Mahoney, Bauress (c), Rittenberg, Green, Cham.

Subs: Preston, Williams, Paulo Jorge, Joel.

Kick-off at Telford this evening is at 7.00pm.
