Wolves boss says their fans are being overcharged by Man Utd for FA Cup replay

Nuno Espirito Santo has claimed Wolves fans are being charged too much to watch their FA Cup third-round replay at Old Trafford on Wednesday, with some shelling out up to £55 for a ticket.

While prices for away fans are capped at £30 in the Premier League, there is no limit to what clubs can charge visiting fans in this competition - meaning Wolves supporters attending the game are facing a pricey night. This will be their side's 38th fixture of the campaign.

Fans who are not season-ticket holders or members face paying the maximum, and boss Nuno said: 'It's too much isn't it? So I don't agree. I would prefer it if fans do not pay too much but I cannot do anything about it. Make it cheaper, cheaper, cheaper.'

Wolves, who did not query United's pricing, have a 3,000 allocation for the replay, after the original third-round tie at Molineux on January 4 ended goalless. The two clubs held discussions about allocation and pricing following that game.

The replay will go to penalties if the sides are still level at the end of extra-time and Nuno revealed his side had been practising spot-kicks at their Compton training ground this week.

He said: 'Every player took their penalties in practice. Tomorrow in the eventually that we go to overtime we have to assess the players on the pitch and make the right decisions.

'We try to reproduce the situation. We make the player walk from the halfway line and take his time to focus and concentrate and take his pen, it's his moment. I totally believe that routines create habits.'

Nuno remains desperate for Wolves to add to their squad this month following the departure of failed signings Jesus Vallejo and Patrick Cutrone.

Forward Diogo Jota hopes to resume work outdoors next week following a scan on a calf problem, though he faces a race against time to be fit before the end of the month.
