There are some seriously talented goalkeepers contracted to Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Rui Patricio has been Portugal’s number one for years, John Ruddy is the reigning Championship Golden Glove winner while Will Norris did not concede a single goal during four EFL Cup games last season as Wolves took Manchester City all the way to penalties.
But let us not forget young Harry Burgoyne.
The 21-year-old has been part of Wolves’ academy for a decade now and is very highly regarded at Molineux. And a loan spell at League One Plymouth Argyle this season was designed to help him hone his trade with Patricio firmly established as Nuno Espirito Santo’s number one.
So imagine the disappointment, both for Plymouth and Wolves, when Burgoyne broke his ankle in pre-season, ruining his start to life at Argyle.
Thankfully, however, there was some positive progress on Monday night. Burgoyne made his return to action after four months out, starting for Wolves’ U23s in their 1-1 draw with Oxford United in the Premier League Cup.
And he impressed too, making a number of impressive saves. So this has given Plymouth manager Derek Adams a welcome selection headache, with the Arsenal loanee Matt Macey having started all of their third tier games so far this season.
