FA Cup Draw : Giant or Giantkiller?

FA Cup Draw : Giant or Giantkiller?

Glenn Hoddle was quoted at the weekend as saying he didnt mind who Wolves got in the 4th round of The Cup, s long as it was a big club, and as long as Wolves were at home. They say everything comes to he who waits, well Glenn Hoddle certainly got his wish today. Wolves were the penultimate team out of the bag in the draw for the FA Cup Fourth round, earning a home tie with the last team. either Manchester United or Burton Albion. Fergie's men still have the small matter of a replay with Albion to consider, but Glenn Hoddle couldnt contain hi sjoy at the thought of bringing United to Molineux. Speaking to the clubs official site he said

'They don't come any bigger than this. We expect United will go through but Burton are still in it. They were fantastic yesterday and that's what the FA Cup is all about.

'It's great that it's a home draw - the lads are already buzzing. They want to play against the best and Manchester United are one of the biggest teams in Europe.

'Everyone will expect them to beat us but this year we have seen already that upsets can happen, so we will fancy our chances.'

For captain Paul Ince its a chance to renew some old aquiantances. 'I'm waiting for a call off Giggsy. He's my closest friend at Old Trafford. It won't be long before the banter starts'

'I've had lots of calls already from my mates. This is going to be a big game for everyone involved with the club.My initial reaction was let's hope it's Burton - but we are all presuming it's going to be Man Utd. If we look at it that way, then it's a massive draw for us.' he said

Wolves surprised everyone when United last visited Molineux, beating them 1-0, Kenny Miller bagging the winner, and were only just shaded in the earlier fixture at Old Trafford. Wolves have undergone quite a transformation under Glenn Hoddle, and in front of packed Molineux CROWD Fergie's player will have to work hard to get into the 5th round.But Ince was quick to remind people that a cup run should be nothing more than icing on the cake, and the priority still remains a far bigger prize.

'We played them two years ago in the League and won 1-0 - so if we could have a repeat of that then we'd all be happy. 'It's always nice to play your old club and if I'm involved it will be one I'll really look forward to.'

adding 'Our priority has always got to be gaining promotion but, of course, we'd all love to do well in the FA Cup.'
