Wolves boss Nuno wary of Chorley pitch for FA Cup clash

Nuno has warned Wolves about adapting to Chorley's pitch ahead of their FA Cup fourth-round tie.

The Premier League club will travel on Friday to face National League North side Chorley, who they famously lost to in 1986.

Speaking before the game, Nuno said: "We don't have to go much further back, recent history in football tells you - especially in this competition - things can happen. We have to be aware of the responsibility we have.

"We will approach it exactly the same as any game, with the search for detail. The difference of the divisions doesn't show you the game so we have to compete and play.

"We are going to find a pitch which is not in the best condition, we know an effort has been made to preserve the pitch but with the weather conditions it will be very difficult to play football on. We have to adapt.

"The next game is always the opportunity to improve on what you did wrong before."
