Gabor Gyepes has been a revelation since he came to the club. At first a few were sceptical. And there was THAT free kick that made a few smile.
Now thanks to him Jody Craddock and Jo Lescott, Wolves not only now have healthy competition in the middle of a back 4, they also have the option of playing 3 at central defenders which has recently worked well.
Gabor second FA Cup tie against United promises to be a little more intense than his first against Plymouth. But that doesn't stop him believing that an upset could be on the cards.
'Even though we’re the underdogs I hope we can get the win and I do feel we’re capable of doing it.
'It’s a long season for everyone in England but for Manchester United they have had the Champions League, the Premiership, the Carling Cup and now the FA Cup to be concerned about.'
That fixture build up is now starting to take its toll. The United injury list is building and there will be a few household names missing when United take the field on Sunday. They've also looked less than convincing in recent games even if results have still gone The Reds way. And Gabor is definitely hoping they have a bad day at the office on Sunday.
“Of course they have a very strong squad, but it’s impossible to play well in each and every one of those 'ames and perhaps we’ll be playing them on a day when they’re not in such good form.' he adds.
Last Saturdays game away at Millwall was a thoroughly uninspiring goalless draw. But Wolves have been playing some neat football at times of late and the 24 year old Hungarian is hoping they can carry that into the Cup tie, and come out on top.
'It’s a great game for us to be going into because even though we’ve not been scoring the goals I think we’ve deserved, we’ve been playing well.'
'It’ll be a very, very hard game — of course — but we really want to make sure we get Wolves into the next round.'
