David Sullivan will be looking for revenge when the Hammers meet Wolves at the Boleyn in the Third Round of the FA Cup.

The chairman is pleased with a draw which finally sees us getting a home draw in the premier domestic cup competition.

Hammers fans didn’t have long to wait beyond the third and fourth balls to arrive out of the canister to know their 2015-16 opponents.

There was relief that we were at home to a very beatable team and speaking exclusively to ClaretandHugh this morning the chairman declared himself content with the match-up

But he recalled: “One of my first games at the club was Wolves at home at we were appalling, I’d like revenge for that. It was a Tuesday night, we were TERRIBLE!”

The Hammers were beaten 3-1 via goals from Kevin Doyle, Ronald Zubar and a certain Matt Jarvis with our lone response coming from Guillermo Franco.

Sullivan told us: “It’s a decent draw, its been four or five games since we have been drawn at home in the Cup. We are due 4-5 HOME DRAWS!

If we can’t beat a mid-table Championship side at home we do not deserve to get to round 4. We will be treating the FA Cup very seriously.
We must give Wolves respect. It’s not an easy draw, but it’s one we expect to win.”
