Wolverhampton Wolves vs Brighton FA Cup Match Result February 2024

Mario Lemina found the net, securing the sole goal as Wolves triumphed over Brighton to advance to the FA Cup quarter-finals, where they are set to host Championship side Coventry City.

In the early moments of the game, Brighton goalkeeper Jason Steele's error led to a spilled cross, allowing Lemina to capitalize and slot home from close range. Despite moments of pressure from both sides, neither team could find the back of the net again.

Wolves' victory came at a cost as Hwang Hee-chan sustained a potentially serious hamstring injury, while Lemina also appeared to struggle following a challenge from Pascal Gross.

Under the stewardship of Gary O'Neil, Wolves have exceeded expectations this season, currently sitting ninth in the Premier League table and now progressing to the FA Cup quarter-finals for the third time in the 21st century.

Reflecting on the win, O'Neil emphasized the team's ambition to compete for the FA Cup, acknowledging the challenges ahead but maintaining a determined mindset. He expressed satisfaction with the home draw for the upcoming quarter-final, highlighting the team's comfort at Molineux.

The victory sets up an exciting quarter-final clash for Wolves, scheduled to take place over the weekend of Saturday, 16th March.
