Teenage Wolves striker Bright Enobakhare is a ‘special’ talent, his forward partner Jon Dadi Bodvarsson has told the Express and Star.

The 18-year-old academy graduate made his first-team debut from the start in Paul Lambert’s first game at the helm last weekend, a goalless draw against Preston North End at Deepdale.

The former Aston Villa manager revealed earlier in the month had he had been keeping an eye of the club’s talented youngsters and kept his word commendably, with Enobakhare showing some nice touches alongside Icelandic international Bodvarsson in attack before being substituted just after the hour.

Lambert told the Express and Star earlier this week that he is keen to make the Nigerian an established figure in his first-team squad in the coming months, and Bodvarsson agrees that his fresh-faced protégé deserves more opportunities in attack.

“[Enobakhare] did really well in a tough game,” Bodvarsson told the Express and Star.

“I think he’s a very exciting player and has a bright future. That’s what makes him a bit special. He had a lot of confidence and knows what he’s capable of.”

Enobakhare scored as Wolves’ Under-23’s rampaged Accrington Stanley 4-0 in the Checkatrade Trophy prior to his first-team debut, demonstrating that he has the ability to play at a senior level.

And with Lambert a confirmed admirer, he can expect plenty of chances to prove himself as Wolves look to engineer a way up the table after slipping out of contention for the play-offs under Walter Zenga.
