Wolverhampton Wanderers will stand between Watford and a place in the FA Cup Final.

The semi-final draw was made this afternoon and the Hornets were first out of the hat, followed by the club who sit one point and one place above them in seventh in the Premier League table.

Having beaten Woking, Newcastle United and Queens Park Rangers all on the road, Javi Gracia's men reached the last four with a 2-1 victory over Crystal Palace at Vicarage Road yesterday thanks to goals from Etienne Capoue and Andre Gray.

Nuno Espirito Santo side's route to the semi-finals may be regarded as the more impressive by neutrals, although they have required one more game to advance to this stage.

Following their third round victory over an understrength Liverpool, Wolves needed a replay to knock out Shrewsbury Town. Bristol City were beaten in round five before goals from Raul Jimenez and Diogo Jota saw them to a 2-1 victory over Manchester United last night.

The Hornets have beaten their semi-final opponents once this season, as a quick-fire first-half double from Capoue and Roberto Pereyra saw them to a 2-0 victory at Molineux in October.

The second semi-final will see Manchester City take on Brighton & Hove Albion and the ties are due to be played at Wembley on Saturday, April 6 and Sunday, April 7.
