Solbakken happy with cup draw

Stale Solbakken is relishing the chance to face Chelsea after Wolves were drawn against the Blues in the third round of the Capital One Cup. The Norwegian manager guided FC Copenhagen to a goalless draw at Stamford Bridge in the last 16 of the Champions League in 2011, although a first-leg victory in Denmark was enough to see the Blues progress to the quarter-finals. Solbakken's return to west London, albeit in rather different circumstances, was guaranteed by virtue of a tricky 3-1 victory over League Two side Northampton at Sixfields on Thursday night. The 44-year-old told his club's website: "We could have been a bit luckier with the draw but it is a cup competition and this happens. "Last time I was there with Copenhagen we drew 0-0 so maybe we can do that and win on penalties. It is one to look forward to but we have a few games to go before that. "We will have nothing to lose in that game and everything is possible."
