Carabao Cup: Wolves v Stoke
Match Preview Wolves versus Stoke
Well after beating Blackpool in the first round of the Carabao Cup, drawing Premier League Wolves away was not the match we wanted.
Will Michael O’Neill use this cup game to bring some of the players that didn’t play versus Millwall upto speed or does O’Neill want to keep a consistent side?

Season so far
Stoke started the league season with a decent draw away to Millwall, another side that are expected like Stoke to be challenging for the play off spots at least.
Wolves started their season with a great 2-0 away win at Sheffield United, Wolves started the game fast scoring two goals in the first 7 mins.
Question for Thursdays game is what sides do both Stoke & Wolves play, do both play their first teams or play a younger team to alleviate some of the fixture congestion the shortened season has caused.
Do you expect to be in the third round draw?
