Wolverhampton Wanderers fans have given mixed reviews the performance of Leander Dendoncker in their match against Leicester City.
Wolves drew 0-0 with Leicester in the Carabao Cup yesterday, but were knocked out on penalties.
Dendoncker was given a rare start in central defence for Nuno’s side, and his display drew mixed reviews.
While most Wolves fans were encouraged by what they saw, others were less convinced.
Thought Gibbs-White was superb second half after a quiet first half. Rusty performances from Dendoncker,Hause and Saiss. Great penalty from Ashley-Seal showing the experienced players how to do it. Special mention’s for Ruddy, Jonny and Vinagre who had decent games. #WWFC— Leamington Wolves (@LeamWolves) September 25, 2018
Dendoncker for me.... thought he was solid and distribution was simple— Steve Morgan (@stevemogs72) September 25, 2018
Ruddy, Dendoncker, Vinagre and Jonny all positives for me. Bonatini awful.— Andrew Farmer (@AndrewFarmer16) September 25, 2018
Can’t see the point in playing Dendoncker at CB, dunno if he looked shit because the whole team was shit or what but can’t be bothered seeing such a decent player being wasted in a position he is less comfortable playing— Charles (@OptaCharIes) September 25, 2018
We were a little bit Championship tonight. Some poor decision making in the final third. Defensively sound. Dendoncker as assured as anything Bennett has produced and comfortable stepping out with the ball. Gibbs-White had a very good second half. #WWFC— Musings from Molineux (@molineuxmusings) September 25, 2018
Dendoncker, Vinagre and Cav looked good tonight and i dont think theyd be out of depth if starting a league game. All focus on the league now #wwfc— Peggyy (@_TomPegg) September 25, 2018

Great to see Cavaleiro back & looking decent considering his lay off.
Dendoncker looks a player & it shows how well Bennett has been playing to keep him out.
Vinagre developing nicely & if Doherty isn’t fit, he could start Saturday.
- Dendoncker was defensively poor.— [GUNG] King Saïss Enthusiast (@KaneMullett) September 25, 2018
- Adama can suck an egg.
- Saïss was solid but looked knackered after 60 minutes.
- I hope Damarai Gray's injury isn't as bad as it seemed.
- Highlight of the night: British Strong Style.
Let's just forget about tonight, shall we?
Dendoncker joined Wolves in the summer to great excitement, but he has been held back so far.
The Belgian has been kept in reserve, as he adjusts to playing in English football.
Dendoncker’s performance last night may not have been enough to give Nuno a team selection headache for this weekend.
Wolves take on Southampton in the Premier League, and it seems that their usual back three will be restored.
