Dermot Drummy is hoping he can pull off a cup upset as he takes on his boyhood club Wolverhampton Wanderers tonight.

Crawley Town face a tricky trip to the Championship side as they get their EFL Cup campaign underway.

Londoner Drummy supported Wolves as a youngster, before switching allegiances to Arsenal as a teenager.

But the head coach will be going all out to pull off an unlikely victory and build on Saturday’s opening-day League Two win.

He said: “We have to plan again for Wolves, it’s a big game and they’re a Championship side. We are looking forward to it, but we have to plan and get it tactically right.

“I think it being their first home game with a new manager, the fans will be out in force and we respect they are a Championship side.

“I don’t think there is any good time to play a Championship side, but I hope there is no good time to play us either.

“It’s a massive club and I used to support them as a young lad believe it or not and it’ll be great for me to go to Molineux.

“I remember going into a petrol station and they were giving badges away and I got a Wolves badge and I fell in love with the gold and black.

“My dad used to take me when they played Spurs and I just grew up supporting then until I was 11, then they lost to Arsenal, so I followed Arsenal.”

Reds have a fully-fit squad to selected from in tonight’s 7.45pm kick-off.
