Wolves' Matt Doherty in action with Manchester United's Nemanja Matic

Matt Doherty is targeting FA Cup glory as he aims to turn a good season into a great one on both the domestic and international fronts.

The Ireland wing-back was a key member of the Wolves side which dumped Manchester United out of this year's competition at the quarter-final stage last weekend.

And as he prepares for Saturday's opening Euro 2020 qualifier in Gibraltar, he has already set his sights on a big day at Wembley.

Nuno Espirito Santo's men face Watford in the semi-finals with either Manchester City or Ireland team-mate Shane Duffy's Brighton awaiting the winners, and Doherty sees no reason why they should not lift the trophy to cap a remarkable campaign.

Asked if Wolves can win the cup, Doherty replied: "Yes, of course. I know Manchester City are still in there, but we have managed to avoid them. I know they'll be favourites, but we have drawn with them this season.

"I know they beat us at the Etihad, but in the semi-final, it's a 50-50, one-off, anything is possible and we have got a good team, so yes, we're capable of doing it."

Doherty added: "Now we have got a big semi-final to look forward to and we'll expect to win that too."
