Tuesday 21st September
Mick McCarthy has already named his side to face League One outfit Notts. County and if the visitors were hoping to meet a weakened side they can think again. McCarthy wants Wolves to get back to winning ways after two defeats on the road and is putting out a strong side, openly admitting he wishes for a good cup run. "It`s not an under-strength team...It`s a team with Premier League players who cost a few quid....There are no youth team players this time but that`s no detriment to them.....We need to get back to winning ways and I`d love to have a cup run.'
Mick will hand full debuts to Marcus Bent, who may silence his detractors if he can find a goal or two, and of greater importance, a first start following injury from 2.5 million pound summer signing Steven Mouyokolo.
Hahnemann and Craddock are given deserved rests, as is skipper Karl Henry. Stearman is given a chance to redeem himself after what I consider to have been a poor performance on Saturday- Berra is included probably for Mick to see if he wants to put him back in for the weekend. Elokobi gets a run out, as does Halford, the surprise name in the 25. Foley may well be operating in the center of midfield alongside Milijas who I truly hope can shine, whilst Ebanks Blake, possibly peeved at his demotion to the bench at the weekend following such a great start to the season will be out to prove a point. Expect Guediorra to shine.
Can not have been happy with being on the bench at the weekend, tactical decision or not, and I expect him to bag a couple.
Mid table with indifferent form. Difficult to predict their league form let alone how they will rise to the challenge.
Scored two at the weekend.
Thrilled that Mick is fielding such a strong side. We have been blessed with two home draws against lower league opponents and despite our near calamity in the second round, the penny seems to have dropped that we can't mess around, and if we win this one, and get a third home tie, the cup run is full of momentum. County have had an indifferent start, languish in mid table in League One, and with such a strong side out, I think Wolves can go out there and do some damage. I suggested we would put a bag full past Southend and in all reality should have lost. I am more than happy to put my neck on the line and say that with this side, we can bag four of five.
