Wolves secured a 3-0 victory over Fulham at Craven Cottage on Tuesday evening, thanks in no small part to Sheyi Ojo.
The young winger, 18, is on loan at Wolves from Liverpool, and has so far found himself a key member of Kenny Jackett’s first-team squad. Although he has not been starting every game, and has struggled with the pace of the Championship on occasion, Tuesday’s performance was one which showed his talents.
However, Ojo only started the game on the bench, and it was not until half-time that the Liverpool youngster made it onto the field of play.
But he then went on to have a match winning role in the final 45 minutes, registering an assist, scoring a goal, and showing a great offensive threat which the Fulham defence could not cope with.
It was from Ojo’s curling shot in the 56th minute that Adam Le Fondre netted the opening goal, whilst the winger himself netted the second from almost the exact same position as he attempted his first shot.
James Henry wrapped up the points with 12 minutes left, but it was Ojo’s performance which truly caught the eye, and fans took to Twitter at the end of the game to show their delight at the young Liverpool star impressing in the victory.
