Wolves v Tottenham player ratings: Ruddy 8, Neves 6; Skipp 8, Kane 7

Spurs progress to League Cup fourth round following a penalty shootout having let a two-goal lead slip in normal time

Harry Kane ended his goal drought as Tottenham manager Nuno Espirito Santo knocked his former club Wolves out of the League Cup on penalties after a 2-2 draw at Molineux on Wednesday.

Tanguy Ndombele gave Tottenham a 14th-minute lead when he charged down Conor Coady's clearance and shot past John Ruddy.

Kane, without a goal in his four previous games, increased Tottenham's advantage after 23 minutes. Dele Alli's perfect pass sent Kane clear and the England captain found the bottom corner.

Leander Dendoncker pulled one back for Wolves seven minutes before the break when he headed in Rayan Ait-Nouri's corner. Daniel Podence levelled 13 minutes into the second half from Dendoncker's pass.

In the shootout, Dendoncker, Ruben Neves and Coady all missed for Wolves to help send Spurs into the fourth round and a meeting with Burnley.
