Wolves ready for Cup test - Bully

14th March 2019, 12:02 by Nick Harris

Wolves legend Steve Bull says the draw with Chelsea last weekend sets them up well to face Manchester United on Saturday in the FA Cup.

It is 16 years since the club were in a quarter-final and they have not reached the last four since going out to eventual champions Arsenal in 1998.

Wolves' confidence returned after a battling 1-1 draw against Chelsea and Bull sees that as the perfect preparation for the clash with the Red Devils.

He told the Express and Star: "We were a bit down in the dumps after losing at Huddersfield but four points from Cardiff and Chelsea have got us back on track for the big one this weekend."

Bull also believes in Raul Jimenez they have the firepower to worry United, he continued: "You can see that he really believes in himself and he's taking his chance in the Premier League.

"He's adapted to the league and to Wolves' style and you'd fancy him to bang a few more in before the end of the season – hopefully on Saturday!"
