Wolves 0-0 Swindon (6-5 on penalties) LEAGUE CUP

Written by World Wide Wolfie on August 25th, 2009

Tradition usually requires that Wolves exit to lower league opposition in the 2nd round – I can only assume the fact that our elevated status means we didn’t have to play the first round explains these unexpected victory.  The team certainly did their best to uphold a fine tradition with a thoroughly uninspired League Cup performance but were just outwitted by some fine penalty taking.  Great to be in the hat for the next round but the cup is never going to be a priority this year – a sentiment Mick McCarthy clearly shares as he handed a start to still transfer-listed (anyone?) Neil Collins, who it seems remains his usual spirited but thoroughly inconsistent self.  A first team debut also to Nathaniel Mendez-Laing – a bright prospect for the future.  Good to see Elokobi and Doyle get some more competitive play under their belts. 

And so, the Wolves go marching on.  Next stop, who knows where…
