Wolves boss Mick McCarthy has pledged an FA Cup replay full of excitement at Molineux after admitting the first meeting with Birmingham was "a damp squib".

McCarthy is bemused that ITV have chosen to show tonight's meeting live after the lacklustre and goalless 90 minutes at St Andrew's when chances were at a premium.

But he believes the return will be a "barnstorming" encounter even though both sides will again make several changes from their league league line-ups, saying: "Those who watched the first game probably won't come back. That's 14,000 not coming already."
