WOLVES Academy director Chris Evans today promised the club's young charges are ready to make history as they stand 90 minutes away from the "greatest showpiece in world youth football".

The Wolves youngsters can take the club into the FA Youth Cup final for the first time in 29 years if they can overcome a 1-0 first-leg deficit against highly fancied Southampton at Molineux tonight (7.30pm).

And Evans insists Wolves are expecting to upset the formbook.

"The spirit and togetherness of this group of young players is impressive and at times in this competition they have punched above their weight," said Evans.

"They have been underdogs in many of the ties but have shown great resilience as well as plenty of talent.

"Before the first leg everyone was building up Southampton as big favourites, as a phenomenal side who had everything.

"We might have gone down there with a bit of trepidation but the lads soon realised they were every bit as good as them." He added: "We are 90 minutes away from reaching the greatest showpiece in world youth football and there is one team standing in our way."

With admission £3 for adults and £1.50 concessions, Evans has repeated his request for fans to turn up to cheer the team on to victory.
