Journalist has been speaking on the latest episode of The Molineux View podcast to discuss all things Wolverhampton Wanderers the Premier League season nears its conclusion. 

Wolves fell short to Jurgen Klopp&8217;s Liverpool on Monday night in a tight 1-0 defeat, however, Spiers was pleased by the late cameo of Morgan Gibbs-White.

The 21-year-old has only made four appearances for Wolves in the Premier League this season after being recalled from his loan deal with Swansea City back in January.

Despite not getting too many minutes with Wolves since his return, Spiers was complimentary of the youngster’s brief appearance late in the game.

He said: “Gibbs-White did look bright. The move you mentioned earlier when he didn’t quite have the pace to outrun his was his kind of first touch. But after that, I thought his passing was really kind of bright and inventive, actually.

“I thought when the guy’s played two minutes in the league since that West Brom defeat, which is more than two months ago now, so Nuno [Espirito Santo] hasn’t felt the urge to put him on at all and give him a chance. I mean, what did he get last night, about seven minutes of game time? So yeah, I thought he did enough to at least earn a few more minutes the next time he comes on, because it was a good little cameo, that was.”

Does Gibbs-White have a future at Wolves?

Gibbs-White joined Swansea on loan last year, however, was sidelined for the majority of his time in Wales after suffering a fractured foot which saw him miss months of .

TIF Thoughts on Spiers’ comments…

Gibbs-White has had a turbulent season – joining Swansea on loan, suffering a foot injury and then being recalled early by Wolves will not have helped the player’s development, with the 21-year-old only playing 102 minutes in the Premier League since returning to Wolves nearly two months ago.

Perhaps Wolves will feel the benefit of his return if Nuno Espirito Santo was to back him a little more based on his recent showing and Spiers’ praise.
