'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Davies : That One Was Special

17 year old Mark Davies is used to scoring at Molineux, and last night he completed a unique set.

Mark is a product of the Wolves Acadamy and has long been earmarked as a potential star of the future. Earlier this season a hernia required him to fly to Germany for an operation to correct it, but now he's fully recovered and finally ready to make his impact at Molineux.

Last nights performance gave a glimpse of what's to come and he topped it off with a coolly taken goal that may not have been spectacular, but its one he'll want to remember forever.

'When Leon's shot was blocked and the ball ran to me, I kept my nerve and didn't panic.'

'I've scored for England under 17s, the youth team and the reserves at Molineux but this goals is really special,' he told Wolves World.

The plaudits he recieved after last nights game are probably still ringing in his ears. And bieng singled out for praise by two of the games greats won't do his confidence any harm at all.

'He's a brilliant young lad,'

'He's been fantastic in the last two games and got his goal tonight. He's got a long way to go but the lad has got plenty of potential.'

High praise from Paul Ince indeed. And something echoed by Glenn Hoddle.

'He is a rare talent thats going out of the game' said Glenn.

"He has got the love of the game that makes him want to always be going out training and playing games, no matter how old he is. He brings determination to the side and today he showed that clinical edge I have been looking for."

And went on to describe him as 'exciting', 'unique', and 'an asset to the club'

Hoddle knows all about the physical problems teenagers face coming into the game, having played for Spurs at the same age as Davies, and he is acutely aware that he will need to monitor the youngsters progress closely.

'We have to be careful because we lost him to a hernia problem a short while ago and he's not physically ready to play a run of consecutive games yet. We have to nurse him through and give him rest when needed, but he is a young lad who's learning his trade and tonight there was certainly plenty for him to learn from.'

With the likes of Paul Ince and Glenn Hoddle to guide him, Mark looks set to have a very bright future indeed , one that every Wolves fan will be cheering all the way
