Sheffield Wednesday’s Under-18s will face Leicester City in the third round of the FA Youth Cup this Friday, 5 March.
Kick-off will be 7.00pm at the Foxes training ground in Loughborough behind closed doors.
Our Under-18s have been in good form of late, though suffered their first defeat in four on Saturday away at Birmingham.
After victories over Nottingham Forest and Barnsley, either side of a draw with Wigan, our academy side were narrowly edged out by the Blues over the weekend.
The sides went in at the break level after an even first 45 which saw few chances for either side.
But the decisive moment came in the 58th minute when Rico Patterson’s deep cross from the left cannoned off the back stick and into the net.
A frustrating day at the office for the Owls, as the Blues youngsters registered their sixth win in seven outings.
Owls: Hare, Glaves, Yates, Sesay, Zottos, Glover, Kilheeney (Curtis 64), Asfha (Trueman 46), Aguas, Bonnington (C) (Cadamarteri 76), Hall
