I was there in 1998.
2-1 down from the first leg (back when the League Cup was considered important enough to constitute two matches per round), Wolves smashed Barnet to dust inside a half empty Molineux to progress.
Bully netted his 18th (and final) hat-trick for the club and Robbie Keane executed one of the most audacious finishes you’ll ever see.
I actually put a bet on Wolves to win 5-0, but sadly it was only £1 and the odds were only 20/1. Still, not a bad earner.
After seeing us toil in Wales at the weekend and only narrowly progress past Newport, I’d happily accept a much narrower victory this time.
The Bees have endured a worse start than Wolves and currently sit 21st in League Two with just three points from their opening four matches.
However, after promotion from the conference last season, survival is probably an acceptable achievement.
They beat Millwall in extra time to progress beyond the first round and will be sniffing a bigger upset this time.
One familiar name from their teamsheet is Graham Stack, who had two loan spells at Wolves, but barely ever featured for the first team.
Martin Allen, now in his fourth spell as Barnet manager will have fond Molineux memories.
His Gillingham side were thrashed 4-0 in League One two years back and his luminous red trousers prompted chants of ‘Are you Santa in disguise?’ from the South Bank.
That was a train wreck of a performance in Cardiff. Kenny said it was an even game and while I agree there wasn’t a lot in it prior to their first goal, he’ll know we should be doing a lot better.
There are noises about major changes to the side tonight, so who knows what sort of XI we’ll see given the personnel at Kenny’s disposal?
If the above team came to fruition that would be nine changes from the side that kicked off against Cardiff.
That doesn’t even include the likes of Tommy Rowe, Jordan Graham or young striker Bright Enobakhare who might also figure.
Personally I’d like to see more of the first team retained, regardless of recent stumbles. I want us to win and progress. Losing with a few decent individual displays isn’t my cup of cocoa.
Much like Newport, you’d hope that changes to the team don’t mean we come unstuck against lower league opposition.
But more ins and outs are predicted tonight and we barely scraped through in the last round despite playing the likes of Afobe, Dicko and Coady.
I do fear an upset but hope Kenny picks a sensible side that can get the job done.
I’ll go for a narrow win – 2-1.
Up The Wolves!
