Wolves are through to the 3rd round of the League Cup after a typically laborious win over a team 83 places below them in front of a crowd of just 10,000 at Molineux.
Wolves tendency to struggle against lower opposition was once more apparent tonight and boss Mick McCarthy admitted his side were probably lucky to go through and admitted it was a cruel blow to the League Two side.
Despite taking the lead on 27 minutes thanks to a penalty from Milijas after a foul in the box on debutant Sam Winnall was tripped in the box, Wolves struggled throughout and were more than lucky to get the win they barely deserved. Richard Stearman, perhaps a surprise choice for Captain for the evening, scored three minutes into injury time of extra time to break Shrimp hearts and drag Wolves into the next round.
Southend rattled Wolves on numerous occasions and will head home with broken hearts after being pipped at the end despite a tremendous performance.
Craig Easton drew level for the visitors with ten minutes of normal time remaining and the visitors threatened to cause a major upset despite substitute Sylvan Ebanks Blake having two goals disallowed from offside positions.
Deep into injury time, Stearman bundled the ball home to secure an unconvincing win for Wolves and send the Shrimpers out of the cup to add heartache to their disapointing start to the season. Despite appearances from young bloods Batth, Winnall and Hemmings, Wolves fielded 8 Premiership players and we can only hope legs have not been left tired ahead of the big game against Newcastle on Saturday- despite victory- Wolves fans may be left with cause for concern and considering attendances across the county this evening the FA must wonder what they must do to bring some relevance back to this event.
