Wolves boss chooses Carlisle for first scouting trip

New Wolves manager Dean Saunders chose Brunton Park for one of his first scouting trips - with strikers at the top of his shopping list.

Have your say

Unlikely to be scouting Coventry there main striker is on loan, and Wolverhampton is a long way to travel for a football match.

So Sigurdarson isn't a striker then Deano?

I wouldn't read too much into this. It was a Sunday fixture, with only 2 matches in the Div 1 playing.
He wouldn't have been here if it had been on a Saturday.
He was probably scouting Coventry, expecting, as the bookies were, a win for Coventry and seeing how many goals their strikers could score against a side with a terrible negative goal record.
What he saw was a solid Carlisle defense and Coventry unable to breach us.
Well done Carlisle!

Why do visiting managers on scouting trips just sit through the match in stony-faced silence?

It wouldn't have killed Dean Saunders to leap around yelling his head off when Matty Robson scored, or to have started off a few chants.
