Wolverhampton Wanderers progressed to the third round of the Capital One Cup with a hard-fought 2-1 win over League two, Barnet.

The Midlands side have now been given a much more difficult test with a trip to Championship rivals Middlesbrough next on the agenda.

Supporters will take several more positive fixtures to be convinced as the Wolves used a squad of young players who are still developing within their system as compared to the normal first team squad.

With the Wolves sitting 17th in the Championship table with only four points, they need to be looking to improve when they come up against Charlton on Saturday.

The Capital One second round victory over Barnet may give them the confidence they need to continue this form into the weekend, and Wolves fans will be hoping they can go on a good cu run this season, and beat Boro at the Riverside.

Evenly matched

While the Wolves have struggled to keep their form from last season, Middlesbrough made some astute new signings and are currently sitting eighth in the Championship table with five points.

In the two matches the sides played last season, both won the home fixture, making it almost impossible to tell who will be the winner when the two sides meet, w/c 21st September.

With supporters already becoming irritated with a slow start to the season, club manager Kenny Jackett will need to use the next month, as well as cup competitions, to show how serious this squad is at contending for promotion.
