Exclusive: Robinson swoons over 'Flying' Wolves 'Weapon' who benefits from teammate
Paul Robinson swooned over Wolves defender Matt Doherty and claimed that his goalscoring record proves he is a “weapon” for his side.
Speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Laura O’Leary, the former England No.1 highlighted Doherty’s ability to get goals and pointed out how Adama Traore liking to cut inside, often left space for the full-back to benefit from.
The 27-year-old right-back has racked up four goals in his first 21 outings of the season so far and has also registered one assist.
Robinson revealed that he believes Wolves are very strong down their right-hand flank due to both Traore and Doherty having bags of pace as well as an eye for goal.
“He’s like a flying wing-back isn’t he, Wolves are very strong down their right-hand side with him and Traore,” Robinson told Football Insider.
“They’ve got a lot of pace and goals down that side and Doherty’s goalscoring record shows you that and it’s a weapon that Wolves use.

“They’ve got pace with Traore and when he cuts inside it leaves space for Doherty to overlap to get around and get headed goals which he has at times.”
Doherty played 45 times in his 2018/19 season across all competitions for Nuno Espirito Santo’ side, scoring eight goals and racking up 10 assists in the process.
The Republic of Ireland international has racked up 273 appearances for Wolves’ senior side after being signed from Irish giants Bohemians in August 2010.
