HIGHLIGHTS | Rovers 1 Wolverhampton Wanderers U21 2

11 November 2020

Rovers bow out of the Papa John’s Trophy as a Fabio Silva brace earns three points for Wolves U21s on the night.

The home side started the tie brightly and were unfortunate to go behind on the 15 minute mark thanks to a Fabio Silva goal. The young Wanderers only led for eight minutes before James Coppinger was taken out in the box and Fejiri Okenabirhie equalised from the spot. 

The second-half looked to be petering out as half-chances came and went for both sides but the game was always likely to come down to one big chance and that moment fell to Silva who hit a winner in the 88th minute.
