Match preview: Everton v Owls

23 January 2021

Wednesday head to Everton in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Sunday night.

A 2-0 win over Exeter two weeks ago booked our place in the next round against the Premier League Toffees.

Everton advanced to this stage of the competition with a 2-1 win over Rotherham in round three.

Heading into the cup-tie, Everton sit sixth in the Premier League and picked up a 2-1 win on the road against Wovles last time out.

Since our victory at St James Park against the Grecians, a COVID-19 outbreak in the camp meant the Championship games with Coventry and Wycombe were suspended.
