Nuno satisfied after Wolves seal first victory of season against Sheffield Wednesday

Wolverhampton Wanderers have advanced to the third round of the Carabao Cup with a 2-0 win over Sheffield Wednesday.

Leo Bonatini scored the opener seven minutes after the restart before Helder Costa sealed the win from the penalty spot with five minutes remaining.

The win was Wolves' first of the season and comes off the back of Saturday's surprise 1-1 draw with Manchester City.

And speaking after the game, Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo was pleased with the performance.

Nuno said of the game: "We're all satisfied – there are a lot of positives; a starting XI with youth, players playing for the first time, good answers.

"The main thing is the team competed well and went through...the Carabao Cup, the FA Cup, they're all important to us because they're games and we take positives and negatives from every game we play."
