Wolves have drawn League Two side Acrington Stanley in the Carling Cup.

The tie will be played week commencing 11 August at Molineux.

Not the toughest test you may think, but in 2006 Stanley knocked Forest out at this stage, and took Watford to penalties in the next round, so there wll be no room for complacency.

With the top English sides choosing to field weakened sides in the competition, the Carling Cup still offers teams outside of the Premiership top half their best chance of silverware, if not the most prestigious.

Is this the season Mick McCarthy’s men emulate the boys of 74 & 80 and make it a hat trick of League Cup’s for the club?
