Wolves defender Matt Doherty sets sights on silverware

Wolves defender Matt Doherty is proud of their achievements so far this season and believes they are capable of going all the way in the FA Cup.

The rise of Wolves over the past two seasons has been nothing short of remarkable and it doesn’t look set to slow down.

Nuno Espirito Santo, with the help of super-agent Jorge Mendes, has assembled an extremely talented squad and they have eased into life in the top flight.

Wolves, who are priced at 4.50 to win the FA Cup, currently sit seventh and could potentially force their way into Europe next term, while they also hold a spot in the FA Cup semi-finals.

They have seen off Liverpool and Manchester United en route to the last four and will take on Premier League rivals Watford at Wembley on April 7.

Brighton or Manchester City will be waiting for the winner of that tie in the final and Doherty is confident they can claim the historic piece of silverware for the first time since 1959-60.

Doherty said: “We’re seventh in the league, semi-final of the FA Cup, first season in the Premier League, so we can’t ask for anything more than that.

“We could win the FA Cup – and there’s a pretty good chance we could do that – but we have to beat Watford first and they’ve beaten us already this season.

“We know that’s going to be a difficult game but the way we’re playing at the moment, we’d back ourselves to beat anyone.”
