FA Cup draw reaction

Manager on landing Wolves

Lee Johnson admitted FA Cup, first-round ties don't come much harder than being paired with high-flying League 1 rivals Wolves.

"It is a tough one, but it is a cup game and anything can happen," explained Latics' manager.

Johnson (pictured) is happy to be at home saying a big crowd at Boundary Park can be their extra man.

And Latics' manager won't need to doing a scouting report having played Wolves in the league only five days ago when they lost 2-0 at Molineux.

He continued: "It is definitely a benefit having just played them.

"The cup tie will be completely different, especially as the game is at Boundary Park.

"We don't know how seriously Wolves will take the cup and there factors such as the weather which could come into play at this time of the year.

"It ought to be a cracking cup tie and hopefully we will be able to get a positive result."
