Wolverhampton Wanderers Academy graduate Elliot Watt was making his senior club debut in Tuesday evening’s victory over Sheffield Wednesday.

With head coach Nuno Espirito Santo rotating the pack and bringing in a number of fresh faces, the 18-year-old midfielder was given his opportunity to shine and it’s fair to say the youngster took it with both hands.

With a number of positives to take up the talking points post game, this lad put himself into the mix as he took to social media to celebrate his maiden bow for us, and Wolves fans were incredibly happy to respond in kind.

Taking his place in the starting XI for the match, he was substituted in the second half when Pedro Goncalves was given a shot to impress with just under 30 minutes left in the game, but it gave him a taste and he should be relishing more and given the showing I think we’ll see him again this season as Santo shows youngsters who deserve a shot will get a shot, especially when it comes to Cup action.
