Matt Doherty Says Wolves 'Fancy Their Chances' Of Winning FA Cup

Wolves progressed to the fifth round of the FA Cup with a replay win against Shrewsbury on Tuesday night.

It was largely Ireland international Matt Doherty who Wolves had to thank for the 3-2 win. The 27-year-old scored twice and set up the winner for Ivan Cavaleiro.

Wolves side now face Bristol City in the next round with Doherty knowing his side are one of only seven Premier League sides remaining in the competition.

"We fancy our chances," Doherty told the Express and Star.

Considering we are seventh in the league now and there are not many Premier League teams left we have got to look at it and back ourselves to go and win a trophy.

If we beat Bristol now we are not far away from Wembley. It will be one more round after that.

So it has opened up for us – if we can play well and get into the later rounds who knows what can happen.

It is important to us.

Doherty now has six goals in all competitions this season. Getting to double figures is now the aim for the season.


"I have always loved going forward and managed to chip in with goals and stuff like that.

"It is nothing to do with having more of a licence going forward. I am up for set pieces which can help and it is just the way we play.

"We play good attacking football and I go forward and it just falls to you sometimes. Some of the goals have been tap-ins but you still have to be there. You have still got to be clever enough to be in the right place at the right time. I am happy to do that at the moment."
