It's been a long time since a Wolves captain last lifted the FA Cup. Forty five to be precise. And since the draw the prospect of a thrilling fourth round FA Cup tie with either minnows or giants has gripped the club. But captain Paul Ince has reminded everyone that whilst a Cup run would be nice, the focus remains on one thing.
'The league's more important.' he told The Express and Star.
'Our main objective is to get promoted and I don't want the players thinking about United before we've played these next two games. Then the United game is a treat.' he added
The prospect of another chance to take on United at Molineux is quite an incentive, and competition for places in the team will be fierce, with Glenn Hoddle using all his footballing nouse to gain an edge.
'We know our gaffer will chop and change the side to put out a team that he feels will get the win,' said The Guvnor.
'It's then down to everyone to make sure they perform in training and on the pitch, which breeds competition.'
It is an exciting draw, but I'm not sure you want to play Manchester United this early because you want a nice run to get the quarter- finals,' he added.
Everyone associated with Wolves will never forget their 1-0 victory over United at Molineux in The Premiership, and while Ince is content to bask in former glories, he never loses sight of his, and the club's main goal this year.
'We played them a couple of years ago in the Premiership and beat them at Molineux and we'll be hoping to get the same result. But the most important thing to remember is that we don't play them until the end of the month and we've got two vital league games before then.
Two vital games that Wolves must win to have any chance of attaining a top 2 spot, or at the moment, just to maintain touching distance with the play offs.
