Chorley captain Scott Leather has booked the day off from his job as a lift engineer to focus on the part-time side's FA Cup fourth-round tie with Wolves on Friday (19:45 GMT).

Many of his team-mates will spend the day at work, including manager and school teacher Jamie Vermiglio.

The Premier League club will be without defenders Marcal (groin) and Jonny (knee) and Daniel Podence (calf).

Raul Jimenez is continuing his rehabilitation from a fractured skull.

Will lightning strike twice for Chorley and Wolves?
Wanderers go to National League North side Chorley aiming to avoid a second upset in Lancashire.

Back in 1986, Wolves, then in the Fourth Division, were embarrassed 3-0 by Northern Premier League Chorley in the first round.

Nuno Espirito Santo's side go into this year's tie winless in their past six Premier League games.

"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," said Nuno.

"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."

Chorley are ninth in National League North and have beaten Wigan, Peterborough and Derby to reach round four.

Vermiglio hopes the club's historic win against Wolves 35 years ago can inspire his players on Friday.

"If the players can be motivated even more, we're going to try it by utilising the spirit of '86 and what that team did," said Vermiglio, whose side are the lowest ranked left in the competition.

"That's what they've got to aim for. The game in '86 brings an extra bit of spice, mainly because those people are still here.

"We're fortunate enough to have people like Ken Wright, chairman of our club, who was the manager on that day. So for him, this is unbelievable to be reliving those memories."

FA Cup: How non-league Chorley upset Wolves in the 1986-87 FA Cup
Match stats

The only previous meetings between Chorley and Wolves came in the 1986-87 season, with non-league Chorley eliminating Fourth Division Wolves from the FA Cup first round (3-0 in a second replay after two 1-1 draws).
Wolves lost their last FA Cup meeting with non-league opponents, going down 1-0 at Luton in January 2013.

Wolves have reached the fifth round of the FA Cup in just two of the past 12 campaigns, doing so in 2016-17 and 2018-19.

So Wolves will be at home to Southampton in the 5th round. Unusually that round will be played midweek around the 10th Feb
Pencilled in for Wednesday 10th but could be Tuesday 9th. Either way the following Saturday (the 13th) we play Southampton in the league at St Mary's

We play at Leicester on Sunday 7th so the cup game will likely be on Wednesday 10th. Then the league game at Southampton will be on either Sunday 14th or Monday 15th

Parma remain favourites to sign Cutrone. They are currently in a relegation position. Mid table Benevento also supposedly interested.

Wolves were hoping Jose would be here on Monday but there’s the new Brexit rules for work permits to get through plus the current flight restrictions between Spain and the Uk, so likely to be a day or two later. He will become Wolves Number 12

Let's hope that if Parma sign Cutrone it's a permanent deal so he stops getting pushed from pillar to post. The poor guy needs some stability in his life, no wonder he performs poorly wherever he goes. Good luck to the lad, I wish him all the best for the future.

Even Wolfie hasn't tried to defend that shambles.
Like I've mentioned many times before, I'll only give my opinion on matches I actually watch. They don't show Cup matches on cable tv in FL.

Obviously, you don't need to go to the North Pole to know its cold.

Are you going to continue like you did when you went by the name of Lone Wolf?

Chelsea 2 up over Luton after 16 minutes bu Luton doing a fair job of roughing up the Chelsea players. Pulisic, Abraham and Zouma have both taken knocks, with a bit of luck, half their first teamers will be out of action on Wednesday

have all taken knocks

Luton get one back as the ball goes through Arrizabalaga as if he was made of smoke.
