The FA Cup fourth round kicks off on Friday night with non-league Chorley hosting Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers. A massive five tiers of football separate the clubs, with both roughly mid-table in their respective leagues: Chorley are ninth in the 22-team National League North, with Wolves 14th in the top flight.

It will potentially be a real once in a career opportunity for some of the non-league players to go up against this level of higher-calibre opponents, though they do have individuals who have been in professional football themselves previously, such as former Blackburn defender Adam Henley.

Wolves have struggled of late and Chorley will hope to cause an upset, though since the turn of the year they have won and lost twice each so their own form is far from perfect.

Other than the win over Crystal Palace in the third round, Wolves have only won a single game since the start of December - that’s a run of nine league games with only victory over Chelsea. Chorley beat Derby County in the last round to set up this tie.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the match.

When is the game?

The match kicks off at 7:45pm on Friday, 22 January 2021.

Where can I watch it?

The game will be screened live on BT Sport 1 and BT Sport Ultimate. Subscribers can watch the fixture via the BT Sport app and desktop website.

What is the team news?

Chorley boss Jamie Vermiglio must choose between Lewis Baines and Andy Halls and Adam Henley in his defensive line. Connor Hall scored against Derby in the last round but he was on the bench at the weekend, with Harry Cardwell starting up front instead.

Wolves are without Marcal, Raul Jimenez, Jonny and Daniel Podence, but will hope to have Adama Traore fit again.

Confirmed line-ups

CHO: Urwin, Halls, Baines, Leather, Birch, Shenton, Tomlinson, Calveley, Cardwell, Hall, Newby

WOL: Ruddy, Hoever, Boly, Kilman, Coady, Ait-Nouri, Dendoncker, Moutinho, Vitinha, Silva, Cutrone

Odds

Chorley - 22/1

Draw - 17/2

Wolves - 3/19

Prediction

A second giant-killing in a matter of weeks? If the Premier League side rotate heavily, Chorley could do it thanks to Wolves’ awful form and lack of scoring options. This one could go all the way. Chorley 1-1 Wolves and the game goes to penalties.
