Match preview: Owls v Man City

3 March 2020

The Owls host Manchester City in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Wednesday night (7.45pm).

It’s the first time Wednesday have been at home in the competition this season having advanced in the previous two rounds away from Hillsborough.

A 1-0 and 2-1 win over Brighton and QPR respectively saw Garry Monk’s side set up the cup-tie with City.


Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City side are in outstanding form and head to Hillsborough on the back of four successive wins.

In the last two, the Citizens have beaten Real Madrid 2-1 away from home in the first leg of their Champions League last-16 encounter.

They followed up their first ever win at the Bernabeu by defeating Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup final on Sunday at Wembley to secure the silverware for the third season running.


City will now be looking to defend their FA Cup crown having lifted the famous old domestic trophy last season with a crushing 6-0 win over Watford in the final last May.

Team news

SWFC: Wednesday will be without loan recruits Josh Windass and Connor Wickham, who are both cup-tied.

Moses Odubajo, Massimo Luongo and Adam Reach are unlikely to figure.

Steven Fletcher continues to build up his fitness after a spell on the sidelines but Monk has said the striker will be involved in some capacity.


Man City: Top scorer Sergio Agüero is available for selection after picking up a knock in the Carabao Cup final.

The City boss has also confirmed that goalkeeper Claudio Bravo will be in the starting line-up.


Leroy Sane has been making good progress after a long period out of action but will not feature at Hillsborough.

The winger has been out for seven month with knee ligament damage but has recently stepped up his recovery with an appearance for the Under-23s.

Match Reports

Report: Wednesday 0-1 Manchester City

4 March 2020

The Owls were ousted from the FA Cup by holders Manchester City at Hillsborough as a single second half goal from Sergio Aguero saw the visitors through.

The Argentinian hitman found the net in the second half to cap a dominant City display. Twice they hit the woodwork before finally finding the net, although Wednesday were far from disgraced in front of the worldwide TV audience.

Pep Guardiola’s side controlled the contest but the Owls were defensively sound, resolute and organised.

And further upfield they were anything but overawed by City’s all-stars in the early exchanges, with Jacob Murphy sending a long ranger narrowly wide of Claudio Bravo’s far post.

But the visitors hit back and Aguero might have done better from six yards following an accurate Benjamin Mendy cross.

City were knocking on the door and possession was in the Wednesday half for the lion’s share of proceedings.


Gabriel Jesus and Riyad Mahrez had chances from which neither could profit and Nicolas Otamendi so nearly did on the half-hour.

Mahrez delivered a teasing set piece into the area, Otamendi’s headed purchase was good but the crossbar came to Wednesday’s rescue.

The interval came and went with the Premier League side in the driving seat, although Joe Wildsmith – making his first appearance of the season – was largely untroubled.

Wildsmith smothered a toe-poked effort from Aguero and was relieved to see a fierce Mendy drive smash against the frame of the goal for the second time.

Moments later Wildsmith did impress, diving low to keep out a Bernardo Silva snapshot as City turned the screw.


And the pressure finally told on 53 minutes. Aguero turned on the angle in the box to pull the trigger and Wildsmith appeared to save only for the ball to spin agonisingly up and over the line.

That was the platform the cup holders required and from that juncture their grip on the trophy was never going to slip.

Mahrez flashed wide before Wildsmith made a super double save from John Stones and then Rodrigo.

The Owls stayed on to the back foot, although there was one glimmer of hope with 10 minutes to go when substitutes Alex Hunt and Steven Fletcher combined, with the latter a whisker away from the former’s intelligent feed.

Wildsmith prevented Raheem Sterling doubling the lead at the last but overall it was not to be for Wednesday as the tie stayed true to the form book.

Wednesday: Wildsmith, Palmer, Iorfa, Börner (Lees 46), Fox, Murphy, Bannan, Lee (Hunt 63), Pelupessy, Da Cruz, Forestieri (Fletcher 56)
