LAMBERT DE­FLECTS PLAU­DITS

The Football League Paper - - FA CUP THIRD ROUND -

PAUL LAMBERT is no stranger to blood­ing young play­ers, and the Wolves boss has heaped praise on his back­room staff for mak­ing it pos­si­ble.

The 47-year-old has only been in charge since Novem­ber, but has al­ready been suit­ably im­pressed to give starts to goal­keeper Harry Bur­goyne, 20, and 18-year-old mid­fielder Con­nor Ro­nan.

“This group of young play­ers is as good as any­thing I have seen for a long time,” says Lambert.

“Who­ever saw the kids play in the first place de­serves credit. All I’ve done is en­hanced the feel­ing of ‘if you’re good enough, you’re old enough’.”
