  • Wednesday do battle with Manchester City in League Cup
  • Coach Lee Bullens insists Owls have a chance
  • Visitors backed by 5,400 travelling army

The Owls face the toughest of League Cup tasks when they face Premier League champions Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium on Wednesday night.

But the trip over the Pennines will evoke fond personal memories for Lee Bullen, who scored at City for Wednesday in the FA Cup third round replay of 2007.

The Owls went on to lose the tie 2-1 after giving the hosts a fright and the current SWFC coach says the visitors are capable of doing the same thing again.

He added: “Wigan went there last year and won in the FA Cup. They knocked them out of the cup when nobody expected it. Nobody expected Stoke to win there the other week.

“There is a result to be had for us if we apply ourselves in the right way. If City have an off day, then maybe we can take advantage of it.

"Championship teams can beat the big boys in the cup competitions but City are the holders of the competition so they won't be wanting to let it go either.

"Ultimately, as an individual player, you want to play against the number one team. They've got a fantastic squad, regardless of what team they pick.”
