Following a narrow victory over non-league outfit Chorley, Wolves made it into the fifth round of this season’s Emirates FA Cup.
Having endured an embarrassing loss in the competition back in 1986 to the Lancashire team, Wolves had to struggle hard to not encounter anything similar this time out, as the difference proved to be Vitinha’s first-half wonder strike from 35 yards.
With an FA Cup fifth-round tie against either Southampton or Arsenal, the win sets the Wolves up.
