The 22-year-old has been given some game time by Nuno Espirito Santo in the cup competitions this term and was handed a start for the Molineux clash with Slovan Bratislava.
Despite it only being his fifth senior start, he put in a very composed display against the Slovakian side, doing all that was asked of him at the back both in terms of defending and in recycling possession to kickstart attacks.
Kilman, who earned 25 caps for the England futsal team, has been on the books of Wolves since the summer of 2018 when he joined from Maidenhead United, and although it's still early days, he is showing plenty of promise for the Molineux side.
Here is some of the Wolves fanbase's reaction to his performance against Slovan:
Max Kilman has to play against villa and Saiss needs to play in the middle— Bibb (@bibb_wwfc) 7 November 2019
Good all round performance tonight.Defence looked solid.Kilman looked better than last week.Must be through to the next round now #wwfc— Adrian (@Sandhurstwolf) 7 November 2019
So many players impressed Neves was immense bar the penalty. Adama was incredible. Kilman and Dendoncker were also massively impressive. I liked Kilman after that reading game but he’s impressed me ever since I’m a big fan does the basics so well. Dendoncker looks good at RCB.— Josh (@Lem_WWFC) 7 November 2019
Should have been more but job done. Traore making a difference again and who else but Raul to score . Kilman also impressed looking like he’s going to be a solid player for us. #wwfc— Bradley Parker (@parker_bradley) 7 November 2019

Kilman.— Wolves Fancast (@WWFCFancast) 7 November 2019
Another assured performance from the former Futsal man in Europe.
The Europa League gives him a great chance to play high level football without the pressures of the Premier League.
He might start to push others for a place without Willy Boly. #WanderingToGdansk
Tonight has further convinced me that we signed Kilman off Real Madrid and Vallejo from Maidstone #wwfc— James Spencer (@jspencer_1) 7 November 2019
Job done, Kilman outstanding, Traore a constant threat and Vinagre broke the world record for most step overs completed without actually taking anyone on, all round good day at the office. #wwfc— Marc Nock (@nocky1982) 7 November 2019
Wolves left it late on the night to claim victory, with Raul Jimenez’s 12th goal of the season - and eighth in the Europa League - arriving in stoppage time, the Mexico international's header from Adama Traore's inviting delivery putting the Molineux side on the brink of the knockout stages.
