Chorley vs Wolverhampton Predictions
- BT Sport 1
- National League North side Chorley have never beaten a Premier League team before.
- Wolves have conceded just one goal in total in their last three FA Cup fixtures.
- Wolves have lost just two of their last nine FA Cup away matches.
Wolves to run out comfortable winners
Sixth tier side Chorley continue their FA Cup adventure on Friday evening when they welcome Premier League club Wolves to Victory Park, though the minnows aren’t expected to slay any giants this week.
Chorley took full advantage of Derby County’s lengthy list of COVID-19 absentees in the previous round, booking their place in the fourth round of the cup with a fine 2-0 win over the understrength Rams.
Wolves meanwhile, saw off opposition from the same division in the form of Crystal Palace to set up their David vs Goliath clash with Chorley, though we expect Wanderers to enjoy a more routine evening against their lower-league hosts this week.
With well over 100 places in the English league ladder between the teams, the gulf in class between Chorley and Wolves is gargantuan, and Nuno Espirito Santo’s charges should possess far too much quality for their plucky hosts – despite their poor form in the league.
The standard match result markets are best avoided for this one, though the Wolves win to nil option jumps out at a price worth backing, while our correct score prediction tips Wanderers to canter into the next round with a 3-0 triumph.
