Match Thread: Wolves vs Reading FC (Carabao Cup)


Nuno vs Jose

By Wolves
September 25 2019

Wolves will try and avoid the ignomony of being a Premier League club which falls at the first hurdle in the Cup when they face Reading at Molineux this evening.

Having already seen Crystal Palace and Spurs fail in this season's competition, Nuno Espirito Santo will surely be keen to see his team proceed to the next round at the expense of Reading, who are near the bottom of the Championship. Reading coach Jose Gomes knows Nuno well as he was on the coaching staff at Porto whilst Nuno was still goalkeeper there, and they have a mutual respect for each other.

Wolves will be expected to field a relatively young team this evening, with perhaps players like Morgan Gibbs-White and Max Kilman getting a start alongside John Ruddy. It remains to be seen however whether Connor Coady makes his usual start!

It may prove difficult to get a stream for this game, but if not then efforts will be made to keep this board up to date based on commentary on the Official Site. Board members are encouraged to post their own observations as the game progresses.

Well I've just had to pay £2:50 for the joy of listening to tonight's match on Wolves Player - seemingly due to a change in EFL rules!! I will listen and try to keep those of you interested up to speed.

Ruddy called into action and corner conceded after Vallejo let the ball bounce. Cutrone clears and breaks with Neto & MGW. Vinagre miscontrols it and it goes for a throw

yes, missed the start coughing up my hard earned cash!!
Just heard a Reading attack that Ruddy pushed out for a corner from which we countered

Hi All,
Reading all updates as no stream tonight.

Cheshire wolf
25/09/2019 19:58
Only Charlie Adam and Tyler Blackett who I recognise in the Reading side. They seem to be doing their best to target Vallejo as the weak link - which he may be, but Bennett is next to him and keeping things under control. Cutrone doing some good stuff at the other end, and has just brought out a save from their keeper.

chicagowolf
25/09/2019 19:59
Cutrone good effort but not good enough for their keeper

chicagowolf
25/09/2019 20:00
13 mins. Reading corner; Doherty clears

who are these Wolves Subs: Sanderson, Shabani, Cundle, Perry? U23?

Sanderson is Tessa Sanderson’s nephew - I can tell you that

Wolves corner. Cleared by Reading. Neto running well, booked for a 'dive' in the box

MGW shot, easily saved

All members of the Under 23 Squad Chicago. Perry scored the winning penalty in our win over Man City in the Asia Cup, and scored a winner for them last week.

Neto booked for simulation by ref Peter Banks after he went down in the area. No replay available, but commentators thought it was a pen

Free audio commentary on BBC Sheffield for me and also BBC West Midlands. But only on DAB. EFL must have sold rights to Sky. A lot of hastle to pay 2.50 or search DAB for poxy radio commentary for a minor fixture.

Jordao scores on his debut 1-0 Wolves

Cheshire wolf
25/09/2019 20:14
New lad Bruno Jordao gives Wolves the lead from distance. Goalkeeper should probably have stopped it. Hehas recently also scored two for under 23's and is a midfielder

Wolves 1 Reading 0

Time they scrapped this silly competition , even if we win it so what? Its a mickey mouse cup of reserves for most prem teams and didnt even know we were playing tonight till I saw this thread.

That's a shame Angry - I did issue a reminder to everyone last pm on the Prediction League to remember to forecast tonight's game

Sheffield WWFC

True. But 3 points for me on Prediction League if it stays 1-0

Bruno Jordao has gone over on his ankle, and the stretcher is being called on so it looks like the end of his game, which is a shame after giving us the lead and looks a promising player. Taylor Perry comes on to replace him.

I know what you are saying Angry, but I have to say, 50 years ago this June I was at the old Wembley watching my other team at the time Swindon Town beating Arsenal in the League Cup Final, and it was probably the best sporting day I have ever had. I know the probability of a lower league team repeating that feat is low, but I think it would be a shame to deny them the chance.

Four added minutes to play

chicagowolf

Half time 1-0 from a goal that Jordao will be proud of, after a spill by their goallie

Cheshire wolf
25/09/2019 20:37
Half time whistle goes. Wolves lead through a Bruno Jordao shot which the goal keeper fumbled. Jordao later went off injured. Wolves have generally been in charge with little threat from Reading evident
Wolves 1 Reading 0

Relieved we’re up at HT. I am very pro-the league cup, always have been and our history would be all the poorer if it hadn’t been introduced. Times change, it’s true, however this competition should remain a real priority for us for silverware. A trip to Wembley in any cup final trumps, for me, a trip to Wembley for a semi.

Here we go again with no further changes that I'm aware of as I missed kick off. Vinagre tries a curling effort but just wide.

Cheshire wolf
25/09/2019 21:04
McIntyre and Adam - who is particularly disgruntled about it - are substituted by Reading. Wolves still in control; at the back, but struggling a bit to get their act together up front. Neto breaks into the area and shoots and the crowd appeal for handball but a corner is given. Good play between Neves & Vinagre but the cross just too close to the goalie.

Oxford beating West Ham, Bournemouth and Sheffield Utd also losing!!

25/09/2019 21:09
Dont worry Cheshire, I predicted the match in anticipation of it being subject to more "technical" difficulties days ago but forgot about it

corner for Wolves

Cheshire wolf
25/09/2019 21:10
Pedro Neto brought down from behind by Swift who gets a yellow card. Takes a while to get Neto back to his feet and he is struggling a bit now.

Corner taken short and shot wide

Reading getting into the match. Sent a shot in but cleared off Wolves line

Cheshire wolf
25/09/2019 21:16
Wolves struggling to maintain control of the game and playing a little too deep at times. Bennett made a clearance from just in front of the goal line with ruddy out of it!

chicagowolf
25/09/2019 21:18
Gibbs White off for Chabani. Another lame performance fro MGW

Cheshire wolf
25/09/2019 21:20
Shabani was signed from Bayern Munich (having played in their first team) and is a German Under 23 player, apparently a tall lad too!!

Ivybridge Wolf

20,702 there tonight. A decent attendance.

Luke Cundle - 17 year old midfielder - about to come on, He also went to China, but doesn't yet pay in the Under 23's! He replaces Neto

Latest scores: Brighton 1 Villa 3
Burton 1 B'mouth 0 abandoned due to power failure (shame for Burton!!)
Chelsea 4 Grimsby 1
MK Dons 0 L'pool 2
Oxford 2 West Ham 0
Sheff Utd 0 S'land 1
Man Utd 0 Rochdale 0

25/09/2019 21:32
Another injury to a young Wolves player and a stretcher for Shabani after an innocuous looking challenge by him. This has happened just after we made our last substitution. So down to 10 men for the last 5 minutes plus added time.

Cheshire wolf
25/09/2019 21:34
A Round of applause for Shabani as he is carried from the pitch, in tears. A sad end to his first team debut. Cutrone now playing at the front on his own.

Cheshire wolf
25/09/2019 21:36
Nine added minutes to maintain our one goal lead. Now Cutrone is limping FFS!!!

Cheshire wolf
25/09/2019 21:37
Great save by Ruddy pushing the ball round his post. Cutrone limping quite badly. Bennett will need to have his defence well organised now.

chicagowolf
25/09/2019 21:37
9 minutes added on. Cutrone hobbling. Wolves save. Fun a minute, down to ten men

Cheshire wolf
25/09/2019 21:40
Good headed clearance by Vinagre, and he then goes on a raid forward.

Cheshire wolf
25/09/2019 21:44
Another good save needed by Ruddy. Free kick given to Wolves on the edge of their box. Ruddy wasting as much time as he can.
SWest Ham, Brighton, B'mouth and Sheff Utd all knocked out.

Equaliser scored by Boye after 8.5 minutes of added time!!!!

chicagowolf
25/09/2019 21:44
1-1 equalizer win last minute. Penalties?

Once again - for the third consecutive year Wolves have to face penalties to try & go through to the next round. Let's hope they do better tonight!!

Ivybridge Wolf

Excellent! We win and via a penalty shootout!

Cheshire wolf
25/09/2019 21:58
Considering all the changes to the team tonight and the number of youngsters making their first start, plus the injuries we have suffered - finishing on nine men, that is a good result, and we are in the draw for the next round. I'm just pi$$ed off as I forecast a 1 - 0 win for us!!
Utd have drawn with Rochdale and now go into penalties!!

Ivybridge Wolf
25/09/2019 22:17
Drawn away v Villa in the next round!
