Aston Villa get Wolves in the FA Cup or maybe Crystal Palace

The draw for the fifth round is taking place and we have only gone and got Wolves at Wolves or actually Crystal Palace at Palace, as that game is still to be decided.

I'd love Wolves, but I'd also love a match at Palace, but both will be tough games although we will be going into the match as favourites.

Full FA Cup 5th Round Draw

  • Southampton v Portsmouth
  • Reading v West Bromwich Albion
  • Fulham v Notts County or Wigan Athletic
  • Chelsea v Cardiff City
  • Bolton Wanderers v Tottenham Hotspur or Leeds United
  • Derby County v Birmingham City
  • Manchester City v Stoke City
  • Wolverhampton Wanderers or Crystal Palace v Aston Villa

The last time we played Wolves in the FA Cup, at Wolves, was in 1965 after drawing at Villa Park in the first match. We drew the match and went back to Villa Park and lost 3-1. We have never played Crystal Palace at Crystal Palace in the FA Cup, but the last time we did play them was in the tournament was in 1962 when we beat them 4-3 at Villa Park.

All matches will be played on 13th and 14th February. I for one am hoping for a Saturday match, but if we get Wolves, I fancy it will be a Sunday. Don't know why, just a feeling.
