Connor turns to youth

Mon, 16 Apr 12:51:44 2012

Wolves interim manager Terry Connor is looking to youngsters such as David Davis and Anthony Forde to play important roles as the club plan their next steps following what has been a disappointing Barclays Premier League campaign.

Wolves brought to an end a run of seven successive league defeats with Saturday's goalless draw at Sunderland but relegation still seems inevitable with the team lying bottom of the standings on 23 points, eight adrift of safety with only four games left.

Looking ahead though, Connor is optimistic about what the likes of Davis, 21, and 18-year-old Forde - who both started at the Stadium of Light - can offer in what he hopes will be a positive future for the team.

"I would like to think so and I hope we get a few more youngsters coming through," Connor said in the Express & Star.

"But it's important we reflect on the season we've had and plot a way forward from there.

"I'm sure players like Davis and Forde will play a big part in that. You need young ones coming through and those two epitomise what we are trying to do at Wolves."
