There will be many personal battles on the pitch Sunday. But one player is probably a little more focused than than most to make sure that the team in Old Gold come out on top.
Paul Ince spent 6 years playing for Alex Ferguson's Manchester United and was an integral part of the team that turned around United's fortunes.
When players want to settle arguments they say “show me your medals”, but not many are so rash to say it to The Guv'nor
A collection of every domestic honour and the European Cup Winners Cup isn't often beaten when it comes down to bragging rights.
Sunday's 4th round match will probably represent Paul's last chance to take on his old employer, but he's as up for the battle as he was as a youngster.
Never less than fiercely competitive he is guaranteed to give it his all for the Molineux masses.
He only wishes the two teams met a little bit later.
Ince said: “It is an exciting tie, although I am not sure we wanted to play United this early in the FA Cup.
'It is always nice to have a good cup run, so I would have preferred this tie in the quarter-finals or even later.'
Every Wolves fan remembers their last encounter with The Red Devils when a Kenny Miller strike gave all 3 Premiership points to The Wanderers.
The Guv'nor sees no reason why the team cant get the same result again, but remains level headed regarding where the side's true aspirations lie this term.
He explained: 'It is only a couple of years since we defeated United in the Premiership at Molineux, and I see no reason why we can’t get the same result on Sunday, but our main objective is to win promotion. This game will simply be a treat.'
And thats all any fan can ask for.
With Ince in the side Wolves look a far better bet to pull off what will still be the shock of the round.
But its still not beyond the realms of reality to hope that their name will go into the fifth round.
