The R’s overcame Swansea 5-1 on home soil in the last round to book their place in round four.

For Garry Monk’s side, the cup clash will provide an opportunity for a response after going down heavily at home to Blackburn in the Championship last weekend.

Wednesday have been strong on the road this term and have won their last two away from Hillsborough (Brighton 0-1, Leeds 0-2).

In fact, the Owls are the highest scorers in the division away from home with 25 goals from 14 games.

QPR are on a good run of form with three wins from their last four and have won their previous three in all competitions at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium.

Team news

SWFC: Wednesday have no fresh injury concerns for the cup-tie on Friday.

Liam Palmer and Fernando Forestieri are edging closer to their respective returns but are unlikely to feature in the capital on Friday.

The Owls Under-23s host Hull at Middlewood Road on the same day and Monk has indicated Forestieri could store minutes under the belt in this fixture.

Massimo Luongo has had the red card rescinded from the weekend clash with Blackburn and is available for selection against his former club.

QPR: Jordan Hugill is back in contention after missing the Leeds game with a knock.

Goalkeeper Joe Lumley is also likely to be available but faces stiff competition for the gloves from Liam Kelly, who kept a clean sheet in the weekend clash with Leeds and saved a penalty from Patrick Bamford.

Yoann Barbet (knee) has been out for three months and is due back in full training next week.

Match Reports

Report: QPR 1-2 Wednesday

24 January 2020

Morgan Fox and Sam Winnall sent Wednesday into the fifth round of the Emirates FA Cup with late goals in both halves at QPR on Friday night.

Nahki Wells grabbed a last-gasp consolation for the Londoners but it was too little too late.

Fox pounced on 42 minutes and Winnall wrapped up the win in stoppage time as Wednesday survived a scare after Wells reduced the arrears.

After an even opening, Garry Monk’s men, showing six changes, had the first sight of goal 17 minutes in.

Sam Hutchinson split the Rangers defence with a pinpoint diagonal ball to Jacob Murphy, who forced Joe Lumley into action at his near post.

Possession was shared as the contest unfolded and midway through the first half there were chances at both ends inside a minute.

Jordan Rhodes was a whisker away from getting something on a delicious Murphy cross before the R’s countered with Marc Pugh firing narrowly wide.

But when the breakthrough came three minutes before half time, it went the way of Wednesday.

Hutchinson found Fox in the area with a quickly taken throw-in and the defender looked up to place ow beneath Lumley to give the Owls the advantage.

Wednesday started the second half as they had ended the first and the dangerous Murphy delivered a delicious cross that just evaded Rhodes and Winnall.

QPR had to up the ante if they were to stay in the competition and Ebere Eze tried to do exactly that with a driving run that ended with a shot straight down the throat of Cameron Dawson.

Todd Kane fluffed his lines from 12 yards after neat work from substitute and crowd favourite Bright Osayi-Samuel moments later, before Ilias Chair’s long-ranger whistled wide.

Then it was the turn of Jordan Hugill with arguably the best opportunity but the striker couldn’t get enough purchase on his shot from the centre of the box.

Fox made his presence felt in more familiar territory on 74 minutes, thwarting Eze as the tricky midfielder was about to pull the trigger.

The R’s poured bodies forward in pursuit of an equaliser and certainly bossed the ball towards full time but Wednesday held the defensive line and their nerve.

And on 90 minutes, the visitors made their passage safe. Substitutes Atdhe Nuhiu and Adam Reach combined to set up the advancing Winnall, who slotted past Lumley to put the tie out of sight.

Still there was time for Wells to round Dawson and score but that proved the last of the action and the Owls are in the hat for Monday evening’s fifth round draw.

Wednesday: Dawson, Odubajo, Lees, Börner, Fox, Harris, Hutchinson (Hunt 54), Pelupessy, Murphy (Reach 71), Winnall, Rhodes (Nuhiu 76)
