Wolves 2-1 Southend

Wolves 2-1 Southend

Wolverhampton   2 - 1   Southend

Richard Stearman scrambled a winner in the last minute of extra time as Wolves overcame a spirited Southend side to reach round three of the Carling Cup.

Nenad Milijas scored from the spot to put Wolves ahead after debutant Sam Winnall was fouled by Chris Barker.

After Blair Sturrock shot against the bar for Southend, Craig Easton headed in Josh Simpson's cross to equalise.

But Wolves rallied and Sylvan Ebanks-Blake had two goals disallowed before Stearman bundled home at the death.

Wolves boss Mick McCarthy made 10 adjustments to the team which drew 1-1 at Everton in the Premier League on Saturday.

Teenagers Winnall and Danny Batth were handed their debuts for club, Ashley Hemmings was given his first start and Stearman named as captain.

Southend settled quickly and saw a number of early chances go begging, and it was Wolves who struck the first blow.

Winnall, 19, surged into the box and performed several stepovers before being brought down by Barker, allowing Milijas to rifle his penalty past Glenn Morris.

Southend almost found an instant response but Tunisian Bilel Mohsni headed wide from Peter Gilbert's free-kick, and the had an effort ruled out for offside soon after.

The visitors looked to pick up where they had left off as the second half got under way and Barry Corr twisted and turned in the box before unleashing a shot that Hennessey got down well to save.

Wolves came back strongly with a succession of attempts on goal but Southend were not out of the game and Blair Sturrock, son of manager Paul, signalled their intent by rattling the woodwork.

McCarthy brought on Ebanks-Blake and Kevin Doyle in an attempt to wrap up the win, but the visitors snatched an equaliser as Easton stooped low to nod Simpson's centre past goalkeeper Wayne Hennessey.

Ebanks-Blake slotted home from close range, only to see the referee's assistant raise his flag to rule the strike out, and extra time would be needed to separate the sides.

The hosts looked to have regained the lead when Ebanks-Blake tapped in after Milijas's shot had deflected on to a post, but again the striker was denied by the flag for offside.

Simpson blew a great chance to win it for Southend with seconds remaining, lifting a shot into the arms of Hennessey, and it proved a costly miss.

Moments later, Stearman forced Ronald Zubar's cross over the line to give Wolves a last-gasp victory.
