Watford v Wolves - An FA Cup history

Watford v Wolves - An FA Cup history

Watford have been paired with 8 times finalists Wolves in the FA Cup for the 5th time in the history of the famous competition, when the 2 sides meet in January.

4 times winners Wolves have won the last 2 FA Cup meeting between the championship rivals - a comfortable 4-1 away win in 1992-93 and a 2-1 close replay victory at Molineux in 1980-81 after holding Graham Taylor`s Hornets to a 1-1 at the Vic.

Well, at least the Watford showings were better than the 10-0 defeat they suffered in the 1912 tie against a Wolves side, who had already picked up the trophy twice before that encounter (in 1893 and 1908).

Still, it`s not all bad news for the Aidy Boothroyd`s side. Second Division Watford saw off a top flight Wolves with a 3-0 win at Molineux in the 5th round during the 1979/80 season before being knocked out by Arsenal in the quarter finals.

The last cup encounter in all competitions between the 2 championship rivals went the way of Watford when centre back Clarke Carlisle scored twice as the Hornets ran out 2-1 winners in the 2005/2006 League Cup third round.
