Match preview: Owls v Fleetwood

27 January 2023

Wednesday v Fleetwood Town
Saturday 28 January
Emirates FA Cup fourth round


The Owls take a break from league duty as we welcome Fleetwood to Hillsborough in the fourth round of the Emirates FA Cup.

The Cod Army visit S6 for the second successive Saturday following last weekend’s 1-0 reverse in League One.

Fleetwood are out to arrest a lean spell of three defeats on the spin having also gone down to Oxford and Portsmouth.

Wednesday meanwhile are on an extended run of resistance spanning 20 games in all competitions – a new club record.


Wednesday: Darren Moore could give a debut to new recruit Aden Flint, who signed on Friday for a second loan stint at Hillsborough.


The gaffer has no fresh injury or suspension concerns as he plots a potential route to the last 16.

Fleetwood: Scott Brown could shuffle his pack for the cup clash. Speaking in his pre-match press conference, the Fleetwood boss said:

“We’ve been poor, especially in the final third which isn’t like us, but that’s in the past now so we need to work on that and put all our focus on Saturday as it’s a huge game for this club. We’ll change the game plan for Sheffield Wednesday."

Defender Shaun Rooney has served a four-match ban following his red card against the Owls on Boxing Day and is set to return to the squad.


The North and South Stand only will be open for the cup-tie and tickets are priced:

Adults: £15
Seniors/Under 21s: £10
Junior Under 17s: £5


Referee - Charles Breakspear
Assistant Referee - Mark Dwyer

If the tie is drawn after 90 minutes, we head to Highbury Stadium on Tuesday 7 February for the replay.


The fifth round draw will be broadcast live on BBC One this Monday, 30 January, during the One Show, commencing at 7:00pm.

Match Reports

Report | Wednesday 1-1 Fleetwood

28 January 2023

Wednesday and Fleetwood must lock horns for a fourth time this season after this Emirates FA Cup fourth round clash finished all square.

Promise Omochere gave the Lancashire outfit a surprise lead against the run of play but Josh Earl’s own goal means a replay at Highbury Stadium on Tuesday week.

The Owls bossed a one-sided first half, Fleetwood showed more intent in the second, but Wednesday edged proceedings overall.

Wilks was a thorn in the Fleetwood side, whether down the middle or cutting in, the forward caused real concern in the visitors’ backline.


One lung-busting run ended with a low drive deflected wide but the signs were good for a dominant Owls display.

Wednesday stroked the ball around with confidence while Fleetwood had to rely on the odd foray into the final third as the opening 45 unfolded.

Jay Lynch was at full stretch to keep out an angled Josh Windass set piece, Jack Hunt scythed a shot from distance just past the post as the Owls assumed almost complete control.

The only thing missing was the first goal, which might have come on the stroke of half time when Liam Palmer looked to tee up Callum Paterson for a tap-in but Danny Andrew read the situation well and got an all-important touch to divert for a corner.


The Cod Army came out after the break a different team, though, and the alarm bells rang for Wednesday when Brendan Wiredu nodded narrowly over from close range.

And moments later, on 51 minutes, Fleetwood broke the deadlock. Paddy Lane delivered an inviting cross from the left, Omochere stooped and planted a low header into the back of the net.

Wednesday responded with a triple substitution, with skipper Barry Bannan on the comeback trail, introduced alongside George Byers and Lee Gregory.

Bannan created an immediate opening for Wilks, whose fierce hit was gratefully gathered by Lynch but the keeper was powerless to prevent the Owls’ next attack bearing fruit on 71 minutes.


Marvin Johnson sent a delicious cross right into the danger zone and Earl, under pressure from the onrushing Wilks, could only volley into his own net.

Wilks then turned provider as Gregory went close with the clock counting down and Bannan had a bullet shot bravely charged down by Josh Vela.

Gregory shaved the top of the crossbar from another Johnson cross and there seemed only one likely winner in the closing stages.

But despite extended pressure, there was no further breakthrough, and these familiar foes will resume battle over the Pennines in 10 days’ time.

Wednesday: Dawson, Hunt (Bannan 61), Palmer, Iorfa, Famewo (Flint 90+6), Johnson, Vaulks (Byers 61), Adeniran (Gregory 61), Windass, Wilks (Smith 87), Paterson
