Wolverhampton Wanderers 5 Chester City 1
It was as comfortable a night as Glenn Hoddle could have hoped for as a much-changed Wolverhampton Wanderers showed the gulf in class between the Championship and League Two by going goal crazy.
A sparse crowd saw Wolves book their place in the second round of the Carling Cup but Hoddle's men found the clinical finishing to go with their all-round promise.
It took only six minutes for Kenny Miller to get some reward for his early-season endeavours with a first goal of the campaign.
Darren Anderton's long corner was swung back in by Seol for Miller to control and fire home via the slightest of deflections off Tom Curtis. Miller had the ball in the net on 27 minutes following Anderton's fierce drive but the assistant's flag denied him a second.
Wolves, fielding a team with six changes and four debutants, threatened to turn the evening into a procession.
Seol shot wide from Mark Kennedy's cross after a flowing move involving Miller and Mark Davies and then 17-year-old Davies, on his full debut, turned superbly in the area only for his effort to be deflected over off Scott McNiven.
Chester had barely shown as an attacking force in the first period with two more Wolves debutants - 19-year-old keeper Carl Ikeme and Hungarian defender Gabor Gyepes - having little to do other than watch Michael Branch and Ben Curtis shoot wide.
In the second half Seol headed Kennedy's centre straight at MacKenzie although former Wolves captain Keith Curle's decision to bring in Gregg Blundell and go to two up front at least suggested Chester were trying to make a game of it.
But on 62 minutes a moment of quality secured Wolves their second goal. Anderton was starting to display his extensive passing repertoire and a magnificent crossfield ball set substitute George Ndah away. His pullback was emphatically despatched by Colin Cameron.
Within 60 seconds Anderton was at it again but Miller shot wide after excellently controlling a through ball, before Ndah saw a one-on-one chance finish the wrong end of the post.
It didn't matter. Chester had crumbled, in particular MacKenzie, who on 72 minutes made a hash of Anderton's free kick which slipped through his fingers and into the net.
MacKenzie blatantly handled the ball yards out of his area yet escaped punishment. He was soon picking the ball out of the net again after Cameron's fierce drive before substitute Vio Ganea, after 15 months out injured, slotted the fifth from Cameron's pass.
Davies, the Chester version, popped home a superb free kick before an extravagant celebration.
