Wolves vs. Morecambe




Surf And Turf

Wolverhampton Wanderers entertain Sammy McIlroy's Morecambe tonight in the second round of the Carling Cup.

It's the first time the two teams have met in any competition, although both managers are more familiar, having played together at Manchester City.

Wanderers may be showing well in the fight for promotion to The Premiership, but the League Two newcomers have already seen off Championship opponents in Preston, and will arrive on a high following their 3-1 win over Mansfield at the weekend.

Mick McCarthy will be expecting a positive response from his players following an innevetable hairdrying, after seeing his side dominated for a vast majority of their 2-1 win against Blackpool, that he described as highway robbery.

Freddy Eastwood is the man of the moment, and it seems difficult to imagine Morecambes defence fairing any better than those already put in front of him so far.

His stats for his season in League Two read played 42, scored 24.

Morecambe will want to give a good account of themselves, but the running of Michael Kightly, and the firepower of Freddy Eastwood should end up being too strong for the Shrimpers.

It would be a very brave man that bets against it.

Wolves Team News:

Mick McCarthy looks set to rest Wayne Hennessey, who this week signed a 2 year contract extension, opting to give loanee Graham Stack a midweek workout.

The midfield may see a change around following the weekends display, with Darren Potter most likely to give way for Karl Henry.

McCarthy strike options are numerous, but with Andy Keogh and Jay Bothroyd both carrying knocks, McCarthy could bring Elliot Bennett back into the side and move Stephen Ward up front, although the option to rest the ever running Keogh,and play Eastwood with Bothroyd up front, a combination that bagged four against Bray pre season, may prove too tempting.

Player to watch: Freddie Eastwood

The trouble is, He isn't easy to watch every minute, as the last four defences have found out.

Morecambe Team News:

Sammy McIlroy looks set to name an unchanged team from Saturdays winning line up.

Player to watch: Joe Lewis

The Norwich City loan' keeper will need to be at the very top of his game tonight.
