Match preview: Owls v Newcastle

6 January 2023

Wednesday v Newcastle

Saturday 7 January
Emirates FA Cup third round



Wednesday welcome Newcastle to S6 for the first time since April 2017 – with both sides in excellent nick ahead of the cup clash.

The Owls broke into the top two of League One last time out with a comprehensive home win over Cambridge, while the Magpies cemented their top-four Premier League slot following a goalless draw at leaders Arsenal.

Eddie Howe’s outfit have lost only one game all season in all competitions, while Wednesday’s three defeats is the joint-best record in League One.

Both teams are on extended runs of resistance, the Owls are 13 unbeaten and Newcastle 15.


Wednesday: Darren Moore has confirmed that skipper Barry Bannan will miss out as he continues to nurse a muscle strain.


The game will also come too soon for Lee Gregory (back), whose involvement in the Boxing Day victory at Fleetwood was cut short.

Recent absentees Dominic Iorfa (ankle) and Tyreeq Bakinson (illness) have trained this week and will return to the squad.


Newcastle: Eddie Howe is expected to shuffle his pack for the cup clash. The Magpies head to Hillsborough having travelled to the capital in midweek and they face Leicester at St James’ Park on Tuesday.

Howe said: “It's going to be down to me to try to get the balance right of how we prepare for this game and what team we pick. We want to win the game and want to go through.”

Record signing Alekander Isak may feature as he makes his way back to fitness from a hamstring injury.


The Swedish striker scored twice in his first three Premier League appearances but has not featured for Newcastle since September.



Supporters are reminded the cup-tie is all-ticket. Newcastle have sold their allocation for the West Stand, while limited availability remains for Wednesdayites.

Remember, you must log into the Owls’ official ticket website HERE to make your purchase online.

Alternatively, call 03700 20 1867 (option 1 - £2 booking fee per ticket) or visit the Ticket Office.


Should the tie be drawn after 90 minutes, we go straight to a replay at St James’ Park, scheduled for Tuesday 17 January (7:45pm).


The draw for the fourth round takes place on Sunday at 4:05pm, live on BBC1.

Should we be in the hat, the Owls are ball number 29.

Further, if Wednesday or Barnsley progress to round four, the League One fixture at Oakwell set for Sunday 29 January will be postponed.

The Tykes travel to Derby in the third round on Sunday.


As the football world continues to mourn the passing of Pele, the Owls have dedicated the front cover of Saturday’s programme to the Brazilian legend.


Pele twice graced the Hillsborough turf for Santos, in 1962 and 1972, the latter of which is featured this weekend.

Priced £3, your special edition of ‘Wednesday’ is available around the stadium.


We were devastated to lose one of our own over the holiday period when long-serving member of staff Elaine Murphy sadly passed away.

There is a book of condolence in main reception for anyone who wishes to pay their respects before the game to the lady known simply as ‘Mrs Sheffield Wednesday’.



The Owls’ Fan Zone is open from 2:00pm until kick-off but will not reopen after the game.


The new floodlight installation at Hillsborough allows for a stunning light show ahead of kick-off, which will be in operation on Saturday.

Match Reports

Report: Wednesday 2-1 Newcastle

7 January 2023

A brace from Josh Windass extended his purple patch in front of goal – and secured Wednesday a fully merited Emirates FA Cup third round win over Premier League Newcastle.

Windass struck twice in the second half and although Bruno Guimaraes pulled one back, it was not enough to deny the Owls a route into round four.

Darren Moore called for a performance from his players and the crowd, with both obliging in an electric S6 atmosphere.

It was almost a dream start for stand-in skipper Liam Palmer, who motored into the box on the angle five minutes in and shot just past the far post.


The Magpies hit straight back and Cameron Dawson acrobatically diverted a fierce header from returning striker Alexander Isak.

Back came Wednesday in an action-packed opening to the tie as Josh Windass seized on a loose Elliot Anderson backpass and stabbed narrowly off target.

Dawson and Isak then went head-to-head for a second time after the Swede found space in the danger zone and again the Wednesday keeper came out on top.

It was real end to end football, with both sides showing real intent, which from the Owls’ part came close to paying dividends seven minutes before half time.


Dominic Iorfa did well to pick out Will Vaulks down the right flank, the midfielder’s low cross caused all kind of problems and Sven Botman deflected inches past his own goal with Martin Dubravka rooted to his line.

Newcastle lost Isak to injury at half time but his replacement Chris Wood caused an instant threat and it took a superb last-ditch tackle from McGuinness to thwart the substitute.

And moments later, on 50 minutes, Wednesday took the lead following a fabulous four-man move.

George Byers found Palmer down the wing, the defender cleverly teed up substitute Dennis Adeniran, whose first touch was to flick into the path of Windass, and the in-form striker stroked across Dubravka and in.


The Magpies’ response was immediate and Dawson came to the rescue, expertly diverting Anderson’s close range effort with his legs.

Dubravka dived to keep out Windass at the other end before the Owls doubled their lead on 64 minutes.

Michael Smith sent Windass scampering clear down the middle and the finish was unerring, crisp and conclusive.

Newcastle were far from finished and promptly halved the deficit on 68 minutes. Kieran Trippier was sent on by Eddie Howe and the England international delivered a corner from which fellow substitute tapped in from six yards after Dawson saved well from Wood.

Wednesday soaked up a brief bout of pressure, then Windass came within a lick of paint of a second successive hat-trick, firing a fierce set piece over the wall that rattled the crossbar.

That could have been the stroke of good fortune Newcastle needed to get back into the tie as they spurned a golden opportunity with seven minutes to go.


Joelinton rolled a simple ball across the penalty area but Wood skied his shot with the goal gaping.

It was one-way traffic as the clock ticked down, backs to the wall for Wednesday, and Matt Ritchie blasted another good chance over the top.

The Owls were pinned into their own half but try as they might, there was no further way through for Newcastle, who exited the cup on a memorable night at Hillsborough.

Wednesday: Dawson, Palmer (Hunt 88), Iorfa, McGuinness, James, Vaulks, Byers (Bakinson 90), Dele-Bashiru (Adeniran 46), Byers, Windass (Wilks 90), Smith (Paterson 88)
