Attention turns to the Emirates FA Cup this weekend as we host Plymouth in round one on Sunday.
After a superb 3-0 victory over Sunderland in midweek, Wednesday will aim to build on that display and advance in the competition.
Darren Moore’s side, though, have been handed a tough draw with League One high-flyers Plymouth making the long trip to S6.
The Owls are on a six-game unbeaten run in League One and have just one defeat in 11 games in all competitions
Plymouth haven’t tasted defeat in League One since the opening day (15-game unbeaten run)
The two sides haven’t met in the FA Cup since January 1968
Date: Sunday 7 November
Emirates FA Cup first round
Referee - Anthony Backhouse
