Match Thread: FA Cup Third Round: Wolves vs Man Utd
By Wolves

More of this please!

Wolves will set out today to prove that last year's feat of reaching the FA Cup semi-final was not a fluke and can be repeated or bettered. Once again they face Manchester United at Molineux and hope to repeat last season's win whilst also hoping to avoid three successive defeats.

Coach Nuno Espirito Santo stated in his press conference that the FA Cup is a competition taken very seriously by the club, and that they want to proceed in it as far as possible. Unfortunately his ambition may be affected by injury to Diogo Jota, which was sustained in the foul which led to Kabasele being sent off at Watford. No other injury worries have been announced. John Ruddy will taking over in goal is implied in today's programme, but it is unlikely that Patrick Cutrone will make an appearance as he - and Jesus Vallejo - are likely to leave the club in the current transfer window. 

The match will be shown on BT Sports and kick off is scheduled for 5:31pm after broadcast of the Mental Health video led by Pronce William. Our referee today will see the return of Martin Atkinson who recently had all the VAR issues in our defeat of Manchester City.

Unfortunately my son follows Man Utd, so we will be in the pub together to watch match!! Board members are encouraged to join me in posting their observations of the game for the benefit of other members unable to see the game.
