The meaningless kick abouts of pre-season are over.

Wolves gaffer Mick McCarthy declared early on in July that he hated pre-season, but even he will be pleased with how things have panned out.

Goals from George Elokobi and Steven Fletcher were enough to secure Wolves our third successive win and winning breeds confidence and who can complain about that?

Wolves even kept a clean sheet against the La Liga side and avoided letting in a late goal!

To be fair to Real Zaragoza, they were a couple of weeks behind ourselves in terms of their preparation for the new season, but they still posed a good threat at Molineux.

‘It was a bit more like a Premier League game because the opposition wanted to have the ball at the back and pass it out like some of the better teams do against us.’ our Mick told Wolves Official Website.

He added: ‘You have to be patient and can’t go chasing it all the time and I thought we handled it well because we had to show some quality to beat a solid opposition and we deserved to win.

‘Despite the fact that the first goal was a bit scruffy the second was a classic and I thought we were the better team.’
