Wolves take on Premier League opposition in today's third round FA Cup draw at Molineux

Nuno Espirito Santo will be hoping Wolves deal with PL team Swansea today the same way they have already dealt with Leicester City and Southampton under his leadership. Will he continue to field his first team - unbeaten in twelve games - or will he ring the changes in the hope of a decent cup-run? Will Rafa Mir make his debut following his transfer from Valencia?

Well Nuno does make some changes:

Line-up: Norris, Bennett, Coady, Hause, Doherty, Gibbs-White, N'Diaye, Vinagre, Helder Costa, Bonatini, Enobakhare

Suns: Burgoyne, Douglas, Miranda, Oskar Buur, Cavaleiro, Rafa Mir, Goncalves

An interesting line-up giving some players an opportunity to prove themselves, and some substitutes appearing on the bench for the first time including Oskar Buur and new-boy Rafa Mir

Half decent side to be honest. Mir on the bench to score the winner?

Nice thought Ivy

So... we're underway following a tribute to John Foz Hendley the club's historian who passed away suddenly this week.

First shot is by Bony but goes harmlessly wide

Bonatini passes to Bright (Enobakhare) who scores but it's ruled out for a foul. Another break and shot from Bright brings out a good save

Morgan (Gibbs-White) links up well with Costa whose pass just evades Doherty but gives us a corner.

Vinagre gives a free kick away just outside our pen area. Doherty clears it for another corner which comes to nothing.

Shot from Costa brings another good save and another corner. Costa and Bonatini linking up well upfront so far

On a couple of separate occasions when I’ve needed to contact the club, the most recent last March, I directly came into contact with John Hendley. I honestly couldn’t Speak highly enough of him. A great ambassador of Wolves, Wolves through and through and for me (and I’m certain many, many others) he really went over and above of what was required.

Extremely sad news to hear of his passing in the week and so pleased Wolves gave him a thoroughly deserved tribute.

Costa to N'Daiye who tees up bright but he fires wide.

Renato Sanchez takes a shot from a long way out which goes way over the bar, falls over, gets up and walks off the pitch, straight past his dug-out and down the tunnel!! Tom Carrol comes on to replace him. Quite bizarre!!

Bony falls to the floor looking desperately for a penalty but the ref isn't interested.

Soft free kick given to Swansea just outside pen area in dangerous area. Olsen puts it over the wall and against the bar, possibly with a good hand from Norris.

Vinagre loses the ball, goes in to regain it, catches Nathan Dyer and is sent off by Anthony Taylor for a 'studs-up' challenge.

Nathan Dyer getting the bird from our crowd - he clearly wasn't the slightest bit hurt by Vinagre's challenge but his reaction helped get him sent off.

Gibbs-White is the unfortunate player substituted to bring on Barry Douglas.

Half time Wolves 0 Swansea 0. Swansea have had more possession but Wolves have had more shots o target, and with a bit more accuracy should have taken the lead. The second half will be interesting now that Wolves are down to ten men after Vinagre's dismissal.

Swansea replace defender Fernandez with Jordan Ayew. Wolves have had a couple of good striking opportunities, which have generally fallen down due to Bright either trying to do too much alone or having a shot rather than passing, which is pretty typical of his past performances in my view.

Wolves are very much holding their own despite being a man down. Crowd have been calling for Cav to come on and he replaces Bright Enobakhare. I think Bright's days will be numbered in the future at this club. no sign of Mir coming on yet.

Wolves break down a Swansea attack. Costa starts to break and is kicked by Fer & brought down Fer gets sent off!!! Ten men each side now, so we can really go for it.

Swansea make final substitution - Bony goes off replaced by Roque Mesa. It was Bony who got yellow not Dyer.
Wolves playing well, taking their time and building attacks.

That's it - we're off to South Wales to replay this game.

I think Nuno will probably revert to his first team choice for the replay and we should come through. Swansea failed to make any advantage pay when we went down to ten men.

You could be right about Bright but also Jack Price, not even on the bench.
