Wolverhampton Wanderers 2-1 Barnet

Wolves survived a late fightback from League Two side Barnet to reach the third round of the Capital One Cup.

Adam Le Fondre found debutant Bright Enobakhare, who put the Championship club ahead from two yards.

The hosts squandered several chances to extend their lead, before Sheyi Ojo collected Le Fondre's pass to curl in from just inside the box.

Bira Dembele pulled one back from close range to set up a nervy finish, but the Bees could not find an equaliser .
