Wolves made it into the fifth round of this season’s Emirates FA Cup following a narrow victory over non-league outfit Chorley.

As Vitinha’s first-half wonderstrike from 35 yards proved to be the difference, Wolves had to battle hard to not experience something similar this time out, having suffered an embarrassing defeat to the Lancashire side in the competition back in 1986.

The win sets Wolves up with a FA Cup fifth round tie against either Southampton or Arsenal.
