Danny Batth praises Wolverhampton Wanderers attacking midfielder Jed Wallace

Wolves Stadium

Jed Wallace has made his first appearance for Wolverhampton Wanderers since October against Burnley last weekend.

Danny Batth has told Wolverhampton Wanderers official site that Jed Wallace was unfortunate against Burnley.

Wallace made his first Wolves appearance since October at Turf Moor, and he impressed Batth with his display.

The 21-year-old was a constant outlet for Wolves, and he helped the Midlands side pick up an impressive 1-1 draw with the Clarets.

The attacking midfielder received plenty of praise for his showing, and Batth felt that his teammate was unfortunate not to have got the goal that his display deserved.

“Jed is another young player making his way – he has come back from Millwall and did really well on Saturday,” Batth said.

“He made some good runs and got plenty of crosses in the box and was unfortunate not to come away with either a goal or an assist.”

In the end it was Batth who scored Wolves’ goal against Burnley, after he powered home a header in the last minute.

Wolves’ performance in the contest was one of their best of the campaign to date, and Wallace will be hoping that he has done enough to keep his place.

The youngster has endured a difficult start to life at Molineux, after joining from Portsmouth last summer, but he seems set to receive a run of games, after being recalled from a loan spell at Millwall.

Wallace impressed while on loan with the Lions, and he will be aiming to prove that he can make a similar impact in the Championship between now and the end of the season.
