Wolves will have to compete at the best of their standards if they are to progress to the quarter-finals of the FA Cup, manager Nuno Espirito Santo has said.
Currently seventh in the Premier League table, Wolves can reach the last eight of the FA Cup if they overcome Bristol City at Ashton Gate on Sunday.
Having beaten Liverpool and Shrewsbury in the previous rounds, Espirito Santo knows how difficult will be for his team against the Championship side.
“We know it’s going to be very tough. They are a good team with good momentum. We started against Liverpool and then we went to Shrewsbury," he told his pre-match press conference.
"Those challenges were so, so difficult. Now we are in the fifth round and we know how tough it will be. The only way we’ll go through is if we compete to the best of our standards on Sunday."
With 39 points already in the Premier League, Wolves have all but secured their top flight status, but the manager is not taking anything for granted and will focus on one game at a time.
"I think we are doing a good job to have these points in this moment of his competition. But the table doesn’t mean anything to us," Espirito Santo said.
"We go game by game, after the FA Cup we go to Bournemouth and we know how hard it is going to be. That is the best way."
