Yesterdays: Thriller at the Baseball Ground

19 February 2015


With the Owls set to face Derby on Saturday, swfc.co.uk takes a look back at a thrilling fixture at the Baseball Ground in 1992/93.

En route to the FA Cup final, the Owls were drawn against the Rams in the televised sixth round and 22,511 fans witnessed a classic.

John Sheridan fired the Owls in front from the penalty spot before Shane Nicholson equalised with a spectacular effort from distance.

Paul Warhurst regained Wednesday’s lead before Derby scored twice through Marco Gabbiadini and Paul Kitson to put Derby ahead.

But in a game of twists and turns, Wednesday would go on to have the final say and it was Warhurst on target to force a replay at Hillsborough.

The defender-turned-striker proved to be the ultimate match-winner, scoring the only goal in the S6 replay to set up the momentous Steel City semi final at Wembley.
