Wolves Blog stops by to answer three questions

Wolves Blog, it's a blog about Wolves. Who better to answer our questions for this FA Cup tie.

Cottagers Confidential: Wolves currently sit in 10th place going into the busy Holiday stretch. But They've only one won game in their last eight. How do you feel about the league form right now and what do you think the strategy is going to be for the FA Cup?

Wolves Blog: Christmas has been productive and we've picked up 10 points from 4 matches having lost 5 in a row before that. Things look like they're going in the right direction again and confidence is returning. I hope Kenny Jackett will pick out best team because we're long, long, long overdue a decent cup run. Realistically, what's the point of supporting a team like Wolves or Fulham if you're not even going to try in the cups? It's our only realistic chance of winning major honours.

CC: Kenny Jacket seems to have a reputation for getting teams promoted. How has he done as the Wolverhampton manager and what do the supporters think about him?

WB: He's surpassed all expectations. Completely rebuilt the team last season and won the league with record points. This season has been a bumpier ride, but we're closer to the top than the bottom and still in with a chance of the play-offs. Some of the summer signings weren't great, but generally we're going in the right direction. I think he'll get us up into the Premier, if given enough time and backing.

CC: Fulham have been linked to Bakary Sako many times before in the past, but what other players should Fulham be on the lookout for?

WB: His compatriot Nouha Dicko is a wonderful talent. Powerful, fast and a good finisher, he's a handful for most defences. It's no surprise that our dip in form coincided with his absence from the team. He's back now though and the results have improved immediately.

CC: If you could predict a lineup and result.

WB: Hopefully our best team so:

Ikeme
Iorfa
Batth
Stearman
Hause
Price
Evans
Edwards
Sako
van La Parra
Dicko


Fulham are a tough side to quantify and our recent record in cup competitions is woeful, so I'll sit on the fence and predict a replay - 1-1

Best of luck for the season guys.
