Carabao Cup: Lopetegui Grabs First Wolves' Win In 2-0 Victor

Former Sevilla coach Julen Lopetegui made a winning start as Wolves manager after late goals from substitutes Raul Jimenez and Rayan Ait-Nouri secured a 2-0 victory at home to Gillingham in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday.

Gillingham defied their position as the bottom club in all four tiers of English league football against top-flight strugglers Wolves.


The deadlock at Molineux was not broken until the 77th minute when Jimenez scored from the penalty spot before Ait-Nouri ensured Wolves' place in the quarterfinals with a stoppage-time goal.

Lopetegui was appointed by Wolves last month after Bruno Lage was sacked in October following a run of one win in 15 Premier League matches, going back to last season.

The 56-year-old begins his quest to lift Wolves away from the foot of the Premier League against Everton on December 26.
