Match Pack - Owls v Stockport

8 August 2023

Wednesday v Stockport
Tuesday 8 August
Carabao Cup Round One


Wednesday make a quickfire return to Hillsborough following Friday’s Championship curtain-raiser at home to Southampton.

Bidding for a place in the second round of the Carabao Cup, the Owls host League Two side Stockport.

Last season’s play-off finalists slipped to a 1-0 home defeat to Gillingham on the opening day.

Wednesday and Stockport last met in this competition back in 2005, when goals from Lee Peacock, Richie Partridge and Adam Proudlock (2) sealed a 4-2 Owls win after extra time.


Wednesday: Xisco could make changes this evening with the game coming so soon after the Saints clash.

The likes of Devis Vasquez, Pol Valentin and Di’Shon Bernard are in contention.

Ashley Fletcher and Anthony Musaba made appearances from the bench on Friday and will be pushing for a starting spot.


Bambo Diaby is available to feature after serving a suspension carried over from last season.

Stockport: Key midfielder Will Collar is set to start tonight at Hillsborough.

The 26-year-old missed out through injury in the Gillingham defeat but manager Dave Challinor has said in the build-up that Collar – who scored 13 goals from the engine room last season - will start the game.


Ex-Owls Ryan Croasdale is a doubt with a hip injury.


In the event of a draw after 90 minutes, the tie will go straight to penalties.


The Round Two draw of the Carabao Cup will take place live on Sky Sports following the conclusion of Burton Albion v Leicester City on Wednesday 9 August.

Sky Sports’ Carabao Cup presenter Mark Chapman will host the draw that sees the 12 Premier League Clubs not competing in European competitions enter at this stage. The Carabao Cup remains regionalised in the early rounds with the draw split into a southern and northern section until Round Three.

Ball numbers for the Draw will be finalised on the morning of Wednesday 9 August.

Round Two ties will take place week commencing 28 August.


The North and South Stand only are open for Wednesdayites, priced £15 adults, £10 seniors and under 21s and £5 under 17s.

There are no cash turnstiles in operation this season and supporters are advised to arrive early to avoid queues.


Referee: Lewis Smith
Assistants: Paul Newhouse, Daniel Woodward
Fourth official: Garreth Rhodes


Live audio commentary from Rob O’Neill and John Pearson is available tonight via iFollow.

Due to recent consistent rainfall, rail replacement works currently underway between Shalesmoor and Hillsborough have been delayed up to and including this evening.

This means that trams are not running from and to Shalesmoor but replacement buses are in operation.


The EFL, Premier League, FA, FSA, PGMOL, LMA and PFA have come together to announce a series of measures to address behaviour across the game.

This includes new policies, procedures, and regulations to come into force from the start of the 2023/24 season to address unacceptable conduct on the pitch, on the sidelines and in the stands.

The new measures build on the work launched last season to combat dangerous and illegal fan behaviour, supported by the ‘Love Football. Protect the Game’ football-wide campaign.

We are also reinforcing the importance of all supporters staying within EFL Ground Regulations, which can be found HERE.

Match Reports

Shootout victory sends Wednesday through

8 August 2023

Debutant goalkeeper Devis Vasquez proved the hero as Wednesday advanced to the second round of the Carabao Cup at the expense of Stockport, winning 4-1 on penalties.

The Colombian kept out spot-kicks from Paddy Madden and Louie Barrie to see the Owls through amid late drama at Hillsborough.

An early Madden goal seemed to have guided the Hatters to the winning post as the skipper delved into the top drawer with a stunning early goal.

That was until the 97th minute, though, when substitute Tyreeq Bakinson claimed the equaliser that sent the tie to penalties.


And Vasquez basked in the spotlight at his new home to put Wednesday in the hat for tomorrow’s second round draw.

Xisco handed debuts to four new recruits at the back – Vasquez, Pol Valentin, Di’Shon Bernard and Bambo Diaby.

The quartet were untroubled in an incident-free opening that suddenly gave way to a wonderful strike 16 minutes in.

Akil Wright delivered an inviting ball into the box, where Madden pivoted and hit an unstoppable volley right into the top corner.


Only stout defending from Ethan Pye kept the Hatters’ lead intact. Anthony Musaba left keeper Ben Hinchliffe on the floor and seemed certain to score but was denied by Pye’s brave block at close quarters.

The remainder of the first half was a balanced affair, with Wednesday seeing more of the ball but Hinchliffe was rarely called upon.

The contest needed a spark after the break and Ashley Fletcher almost provided it with a rasping drive across Hinchliffe but just past the post.

Diaby had a snapshot deflected wide following a mini-scramble and the Owls certainly had more about them in the second period.


Both sides utilised the bench on the hour - Wednesday made two changes and Stockport three.

The pattern of the tie stayed the same as Stockport dropped deeper and deeper, relying on the counter in any forward thrust.

Xisco threw on three more substitutes in the closing stages but it was mainstay Barry Bannan who twice went close, sending wicked shots from distance inches over the top.

Bakinson then forced the save of the game from Hinchcliffe, who sprang across his goal to divert the midfielder’s header.


But Wednesday persisted and saved the best right to the last. With a little over a minute to go, Bannan swung in a looping, angled cross that Stockport struggled to clear and Bakinson was on hand to stab home.

So to penalties we went – and as the Owls converted all four, Vasquez twice denied the visitors to send an impressive following from Stockport back over the Pennines with nothing to show from a spirited S6 display.

Wednesday: Vasquez, Valentin (Paterson 59), Diaby (Iorfa 80), Bernard, James, Vaulks (Bakinson 80), Bannan, Delgado (Fusire 80), Musaba, Gregory, Fletcher (Windass 59)
