Cup glory beckons for Wolves

7th January 2019, 11:47 by Nick Harris

Nuno Espirito Santo wants his Wolves players to be inspired by the club's FA Cup history when they take on Liverpool on Monday.

The late Bill Slater CBE led Wolves in 1960 when they picked up the famous trophy and there will be a tribute to him before kick off ahead of the clash with the Reds.

Nuno wants the current side to try and emulate the great teams from the 50's and 60s and, with Wolves sat in a comfortable mid-table position in the Premier League, this season could be the time for another cup assault.

The manager told reporters: "It’s part of the history of the club. If we can try to progress and look to the future, and try to be how Wolves were in the ‘50s and ‘60s, it will mean a lot, but we know we have a big task in front of us.

"We will try, but there are not many weaknesses. They are a very good team, no doubt about it. They are one of the biggest clubs in the history of football. It’s a big challenge, we want to compete and we want to go for the game."
