Wolves reserves fielded seven first team players last night, and their strength and expericence was too much for the West Brom second string.
The game was played at a lively pace, with the early chances falling Wolves way.Russell Hoult in goal for the Baggies being the busier of the keepers in a goalless first half.
Six minutes into the second halh Carl Cort broke the deadlock, bundling in a low Rohan Ricketts shot for a trademark poachers goal.
Wolves nearly stretched theirleadminutes later when Daniel Jones blazed a Carl Cort knock down over the bar.Br>
Wolves did finally get their second on eth hour mark when another Rohan Rickett cross was deflected deflefted past Hoult by one of his own defenders.
Denes Rosa fired just over the bar with a sublime 30 yard chip, and Albion created two half chances before a Vio Ganea penalty sealed the victory
The industrious Rohan Ricketts crossed to Carl Cort whose cushioned header to Ganea was volleyed first time, bringing a marvellous reflex save from Russell Hoult. Lee Baker handled attempting to clear the ball and Vio Ganea calmly sloted the penalty home to give Wolves a 3 goal cushion.
Further chances fell to Rohan Ricketts and Denes Rosa as Wolves finished the stronger side, but the scoreline remained the same. Final Score WBA 0 - Wolves 3
So another reserve goal for Carl Cort-and a full 90 minutes. The reserves may not be the FA Cup, but Russell Hoult was once tipped for far greater things than a run out at Kidderminster on a Monday night. It doesnt matter what level youre playing at. If youre not even getting them on target you could be playing youth teams. You still won't score. Rohan Ricketts had a good run out, Michael Oakes gained valuable match time between the sticks, and Denes Rosa got chance to show some of the touches that caught Glenn Hoddles eye. A good day at the office all round.
As Glenn Hoddle looks to strengthen his attacking options, Carl Cort strengthened his case for a return to the starting eleven. But can he prove it over the course of the next three days?
