Happy to make my full debut for Wolves. Also happy to get an assist. Not the result we were looking for but it was another great experience. Thanks to all the travelling fans who came to support us! @Wolves pic.twitter.com/BndaSLi0gO

The 18-year-old had made his first team debut in the previous round of the competition, when he came on as a substitute against Reading, and was then included in Nuno Espirito Santo’s line-up for the match at Villa Park on Wednesday night.
The teenager made an impact in that game, too, claiming an assist for Patrick Cutrone’s equaliser after he won possession and his subsequent shot was turned into the net by the Italian striker (as per Sky Sports), in addition to winning four tackles.
Can Wolves cope without Willy Boly?
Perry, who has also been on the bench for some of Wolves’ European games, has been playing regularly for the under-23 side in Premier League 2 this season, scoring twice and starting all nine matches in the division so far. [via TransferMarkt]
