Burton Albion physio Phil Brown couldn't have been happier with todays FA Cup fourth round draw. The lifelong Wolves fan has always dreamed of a day at Molineux, and now he has the chance. Theres only one snag.
'It is what I've always wanted. We've got to get past Manchester United first - but I'd love to go to Molineux,' he said after watching The Brewers name come out of the hat.
Albion earned their place in the draw with a 0-0 draw at the Pirelli Stadium, and now only a replay at Old Trafford stands between them, and a Midlands Derby. Burton forward Darren Stride epitomised the club's down to earth view when he said
'It's a great draw for Manchester United and Wolves. We'll be lucky to get there - but we'll try our hardest. If we get there it will be another great draw for us.'
Neutrals and Wolves fans will now watch the Old Trafford replay with keen interest, both hoping the FA Cup can provide a bit more of the romance that makes it such a spectacle. But in Wolves' case, maybe hoping that like many a romance, Burton's is destined not to last.
