A win is a win, is a win.

A win is a win, is a win.

As far banana skins go, Accrington Stanley in the first round of the League Cup was a pretty big one.

But we managed to come through it, albeit not with the panache that most fans would have liked.

It's lazy to say that Accrington approached the game like their cup final.

They didn't. They simply came to win, ready to take any chance they were given, which they did, and gave it their all, and were a credit to their club.

Which is more than can be said of those that still insist we should beat every lower league team by a hatful, and vent their spleen if we don't, something backed up by the recent survey that had Wolves fans as some of the most despised in the land.

To any fans living outside of the midlands, this is not a surprise.

We don't have a God given right to beat anyone. as can be said of any team.

Man United should beat Southend every day of the week.

Liverpool should beat Barnsley.

Wolves souldn't beat Man United, but occasionally these things happen.

It's what football is all about.

The Cup match was pretty much a no win situation.

An emphatic win would have led to talk of it 'only being Acrington.@

A ground out win, and it's crisis time again.

Neither is entirely true.

We could have made life easier for ourselves, and maybe we should have, but that doesn't mean that the night wasn't without it's positives.

The return of Mark Davies to both first team action and scoring form must have pleased even his harshest critics.

We recently managed to grab a few words with Mark who looked fitter than he has in a long time, and also seemed to have regained some of the humility he possessed as a youngster before all the hoopla about him being the most talented player at the club started.

Hopefully, that will continue and he can force his way back into Mick McCarty's plans and command a regular starting place once and for all.

there was more good news Wednesday as Lewis Gobern completed his return to fitness, playing in a reserve friendly in a side that also featured Darren Potter, Darren Ward, and surprisingly, another run out for Sparky.

We still have high hopes for Lewis who missed the whole of last season through injury and look forward to seeing him push for a first team spot as the season progresses.
