Wolves progressed to the third round of the Capital One Cup by beating Northampton 3-1.

In the early exchanges, Ben Tozer failed to get a good connection with Clive Platt's knockdown and Wolves wideman Anthony Forde flashed a shot across goal and just wide of the far post.

But Danny Batth gave Wolves the lead in the 17th minute, getting the final touch on Forde's inswinging corner. Frank Nouble saw his angled drive charged down as the Championship side stepped up a gear and threatened to score a second goal.
