Nuno Espirito Santo says Wolves are taking the FA Cup very seriously after securing their place in the quarter-finals on Sunday.

Wolves booked a first FA Cup quarter-final appearance for 16 years after they ended Bristol City’s long unbeaten record with a 1-0 win at Ashton Gate.

Midfielder Ivan Cavaleiro’s first-half finish brought City’s 15-match undefeated run and nine-match winning streak to a halt.

The Championship club had their moments, but ultimately could have few complaints after they struggled to consistently impose themselves on the fifth-round contest.

Wolves had not reached the competition’s last eight since 2003, and Nuno says they are taking the competition very seriously.

‘I am very happy because we have achieved something very positive for us,’ he said.

‘It is a tough stadium to come to and take away something.

‘We were the better team in the first half, we created a lot and didn’t concede too many chances.

We are always looking for the best options in a strong XI.

There is no such thing as rotation for us, it’s always looking for the right options.

‘We really appreciate this competition, and we go for it, of course.’
