Match preview: Luton v Wednesday

15 January 2019

Wednesday and Luton will settle their FA Cup third round tie this evening at Kenilworth Road.

The two sides played out a goalless draw at Hillsborough earlier this month, prompting tonight’s replay in Bedfordshire.

Whether it be after 90 minutes, extra time or penalties, it will be decided on the night with the winners to face Chelsea in round four at Stamford Bridge.

Here is’s match preview:

Team news

Owls: Sam Hutchinson’s chances of being involved this evening are rated 50/50. The midfielder picked up a knock at Hull on Saturday and was unable to train on Monday.

Joey Pelupessy will also be assessed after picking up an ankle injury.

Keiren Westwood (toe) may miss out in the cup clash.

Luton: The Hatters will be without striker Danny Hylton who begins his four-match suspension after picking up a red card in the 1-1 draw with Sunderland.

Forward Harry Cornick (ankle) is also a doubt.


Sold out

Wednesday’s full allocation of 1,500 tickets have been snapped up as the Owls visit Kenilworth Road for the first time since February 2007.
