Coming to this game, both Chorley and Wolverhampton have just met once prior to this game, and that was in 1986-87 season in this very same competition, to which a Non-league Chorley FC team defeated a fourth division Wolves side in a 2-0 win. So, looking back at the history, there might just be a glimmer of hope for the the Magpies to spring a surprise in the 4th round of the FA Cup, and with that against a struggling Wolverhampton side who seems to be having a poor performance of recent. Perhaps, with a relaxed mentality and not caring so much about their opponents playing in the top tier division (EPL), Chorley will definitely cause some huge difficulties for the visitors in the next 90 minutes of the game.

Chorley FC has been having a good performance in this year's FA Cup, with Jamie Vermiglio's team creating a perfect feat in the matches from round 1 to round 3 of the FA Cup 2020/21. In the first round, Chorley beat League One and Wigan club 3-2 after 120 minutes. In the second round, Chorley overcame another high flying League One team, Peterborough, with a score of 2-1, and that away from home. Round 3 took place on January 9, 2021, Chorley defeated another first-class team Derby County 2-0 at home. Therefore, coming to this game, I believe their might just be another huge upset, with the club playing against a team who have just gone through a series of 6 consecutive matches in the Premier League without winning (losing 4, drawing 2). Although, Wolverhampton might be desperately in need of a convincing victory to recover their form, but since it's likely they are going to be resting most of their A-list players, things might be a little bit patchy on the road for the expected young lads featuring.

So, from the above analysis, I believe the host will secure an upsetting victory against Nuno Espirito Santo's deterrent team. Although, it might be a huge wall for Jamie Vermiglio's men to break, but with their impeccable performance of recent, I believe they will overcome that challenge.
