Match preview: Fleetwood v Wednesday

Fleetwood v Wednesday
Tuesday 7 February
Emirates FA Cup fourth round replay
Highbury Stadium


For the fourth time in 2022/23 the Owls and Fleetwood will lock horns this evening.

It’s an Emirates FA Cup fourth round replay at Highbury Stadium, ten days after the 1-1 draw at Hillsborough.


A place in the fifth round of the competition is at stake with a tie away at either Burnley or Ipswich, whose replay also takes place tonight at Turf Moor.

The Owls are flying on all fronts and without defeat since early October, while Fleetwood have suffered four straight losses in League One.


Wednesday: Callum Paterson will miss out after pulling up with injury in our 1-0 win over Plymouth on Saturday.


Paterson scored the only goal of the game against the Pilgrims to fire the Owls into top spot but went down with injury in the second half and was replaced by Jack Hunt.

With fixtures coming thick and fast and a key League One clash against Ipswich on the horizon, manager Darren Moore may opt to mix things up in terms of team selection.

Fleetwood: Darnell Johnson remains sidelined with a long term injury.

Club captain Josh Vela was sent off on Saturday as the Cod Army slipped to a 3-2 home defeat against Burton.

Striker Jayden Stockley scored on his debut at the weekend but will not feature this evening having already represented Charlton in the competition this season.


In the event of a draw after 90 minutes, the tie will go to extra time and then penalties if required.


The game is sold out to visiting supporters.

Match Reports

Report | Fleetwood 1-0 Wednesday

7 February 2023

Fleetwood ended Wednesday’s Emirates FA Cup hopes with a 1-0 win in this fourth round replay.

Carlos Mendes Gomes scored the only goal of the game, halting Owls’ long unbeaten run but leaving the visitors free to focus fully on the primary aim of promotion.

The contest could have gone either way, with good chances at both ends, and it was Mendes Gomes that took the one that mattered.

It was all change for the Owls, with only Liam Palmer in the starting line-up from the team that beat Plymouth in the league on Saturday.


Darren Moore handed a debut to academy starlet Sean Fusire, while fellow youngster Adam Alimi-Adetoro took his bow as a half time substitute.

Cod Army manager Scott Brown also shuffled his pack, fielding a much-changed starting XI to that of the first tie at Hillsborough, where goalscorer Promise Omochere was inches away from a dream start, nodding a Phoenix Patterson cross wide.

Omochere then went closer still, spinning in the box to find space and execute a fierce drive that smashed against the upright.

The Owls went downfield and this time the woodwork came to Fleetwood’s rescue as Lee Gregory’s header hit the underside of the crossbar following fine work down the left from Palmer.


The hosts responded with Patterson curling a clever shot from distance that had David Stockdale springing across his goal and the keeper was relieved to see the ball bend just off target.

The breakthrough came right on the hour and it was Patterson again the provider, sending an inviting cross into the danger zone that Mendes Gomes glanced into the roof of the net.

Wednesday, bolstered going forward by Josh Windass and George Byers from the bench, came on strong in search of an equaliser.

Fisayo Dele-Bashiru had claims for a penalty turned down after tangling with Brendan Wiredu and Byers was not far away with an outswinger that flew the wrong side of the post.


But with Fleetwood content to sit back and hold on to their lead, the Owls were left frustrated in the closing stages and the Lancashire outfit advance to round five.

Wednesday: Stockdale, Fusire (Windass 70), Hunt, Palmer (Iorfa 46), Famewo (Alimi-Adetoro 46), Brown, Adeniran (Byers 70), Bakinson, Dele-Bashiru, Gregory (Smith 46), Wilks
