Wolverhampton Wanderers will be looking to reach the quarter-finals of the FA Cup for the second time in three years when they host Southampton tonight.

Ahead of the clash, Vavel take a look at three memorable games that took place between the two sides at Molineux.

Wolves 3-0 Southampton- 10th April 2009

Towards the end of a campaign that saw the Wanderers win the Championship title, a lightning start helped guide Wolves to a comfortable 3-0 victory.

Sam Vokes broke the deadlock inside only 32 seconds when he headed home from a David Jones corner.

Five minutes later Jody Craddock doubled the hosts lead when he converted past Kelvin Davis after latching on to another Jones cross.

The rout was then completed on the 19th-minute mark when Jones netted from the penalty spot after David Edwards was penalised inside the area.

For the remainder of the game Vokes, Andy Keogh and substitute Marlon Harewood were all close to adding a fourth, but the three points were already wrapped up as Wolves went five points clear at the top of the table.

Wolves 2-0 Southampton- 29th September 2018

A late showing by the Wanderers saw Wolves claim three points against the Saints towards the start of their first season back in the Premier League.

In a game of few clear cut chances, the attacking threat of substitute Adama Traore ultimately proved to be the difference.

Ivan Cavaleiro gave Wolves the lead with eleven minutes remaining with his first Premier League touch when he converted after being found by a Traore cutback.

Then full-back Jonny Otto ensured the three points were going to the Wanderers when he slotted home from point-blank range after being found by Matt Doherty.

This result at the time after seven games moved Wolves up to eighth place in the Premier League table.
