Emirates FA Cup fourth round replay

THE MATCH

Following a 1-1 draw at Hillsborough just over a week ago, the Owls and Coventry will meet again for the Emirates FA Cup fourth round replay.

Djeidi Gassama equalised late in the S6 cup-tie, cancelling out Victor Torp’s thunderous hit on the stroke of half time.

It will be the fourth occasion in the space of just six weeks that the two sides have gone head-to-head.

The Sky Blues’ charge for the play-offs has taken a blow since our FA Cup clash ended in stalemate.

A 2-2 draw at home to Bristol City and 2-1 defeat on Saturday at Norwich has seen Coventry drop to seventh spot.

TEAM NEWS

Wednesday: Pierce Charles is set to take his place between the sticks.

The young shot-stopper made his debut in the original tie at Hillsborough and with Cameron Dawson injured and James Beadle cup-tied, the 18-year-old looks set to start his second senior game.

New recruits Kristian Pedersen and Ian Poveda are ineligible to feature.

Sheaf, who scored twice against the Owls at Hillsborough in the league meeting, is ruled out for six to eight weeks.
