Bristol City 0-1 Wolves: Wanderers reach FA Cup quarter-finals
Ivan Cavaleiro put Wolves ahead with his fifth goal of the season

Wolves overcame resilient Bristol City at Ashton Gate to reach the FA Cup quarter-finals for the first time since 2003.

After a quiet opening, Ivan Cavaleiro stroked home the only goal with the game’s first shot following good work by Matt Doherty down the right.

Bristol City improved markedly after the break and put significant pressure on the Wolves goal, going close through Jay Dasilva and Matty Taylor.

Despite frenzied late action in the Wolves box, they could not find an equaliser and the visitors held on to secure a place in the last eight as their impressive season continues.

The drama in added time was in sharp contrast to the game’s sedate opening stages, with Wolves looking composed and seemingly on course for a comfortable win.

After going ahead through Cavaleiro they could have extended their lead still further, going close through Doherty and Leander Dendoncker before the break.

But whatever Robins boss Lee Johnson said at half-time had a positive effect as the Championship side improved dramatically after the break.

Dasilva wasted arguably their best opportunity when he blazed over when in space on the edge of the box before Wolves keeper John Ruddy did well to push away Taylor’s deflected effort from close range.

Then in the last minute of added time, Robins keeper Fielding saw a shot saved by opposing counterpart Ruddy after going up for a corner.
