Match Preview: Town v Sheffield Wednesday

7 February 2023

Fleetwood Town are set to host Sheffield Wednesday for the fourth time this season on Tuesday night, in the Fourth Round replay of the Emirates FA Cup, and we have all the information you need ahead of the clash.

Fixture: Fleetwood Town v Sheffield Wednesday

Competition: Emirates FA Cup (Fourth Round Replay)

Date: Tuesday 7 February

Kick-off: 7:45pm

Venue: Highbury Stadium



It hasn’t been a great start to the new year in terms of the league for Fleetwood. No win now since New Year’s Day and that run extended last Saturday after a last-minute loss to Burton Albion. However, Fleetwood have had a good run in the FA Cup so far, having beat Ebbsfleet, Oxford City and Queens Park Rangers respectively, while also picking up a draw with the Owls which takes the Cods to Tuesday night’s replay.

Scott Brown was able to field all three of the late January transfer window signings. Corrie Nbada started in the heart of defence while both Jack Marriott and Jayden Stockley led the line.

In the 3-2 loss at the hands of Burton, Stockley did get on the scoresheet after a nice move from the Fleetwood attack, but it wasn’t the best outing for the team with the game being snatched from them by Stockley’s former Charlton teammate, Charlie Kirk in the dying seconds.

The man with the heroics at Hillsborough last time out though, Promise Omochere was on hand to continue his great scoring record with a goal in Saturday’s game so Fleetwood will have the advantage of having him in the squad for this midweek tie.



Tuesday’s visitors on the other hand, Sheffield Wednesday have been seeing a contrasting vein of form to Town. The Owls haven’t suffered a league defeat since they faced Plymouth back in October but beat Argyle in the return fixture last time out to go top of League One.

]It was only Fleetwood who halted Wednesday’s run of six straight wins when the two teams drew in the Cup game at the end of January. It was just a 1-0 victory over Plymouth for Wednesday last weekend, but the goal was scored early, and Darren Moore’s men played their effective style of football that guided them towards the win which has since made many people label them as the best team in the league.

For this Fourth Round replay, a trip to either Ipswich or Burnley is on the cards and the South Yorkshire-based side will be doing all they can to keep Highbury quiet on Tuesday.

Report: Town make history after knocking Wednesday out the FA Cup

7 February 2023

Sponsored by

Fleetwood Town made yet more history in the Emirates FA Cup on Tuesday night as they managed to stop Sheffield Wednesday’s unbeaten run by beating them 1-0 at Highbury.

In a game that was the polar opposite from Saturday afternoon, the willingness and determination from the Cods showed from start to finish as Carlos Mendes Gomes’ header in the second half was the difference on the afternoon.

Scott Brown’s men started the game with an electric pace as the first chance came just four minutes into the game. Phoenix Patterson played a low ball across the face of goal, with Promise Omochere waiting in the centre, but he couldn’t get a touch on it.

Soon after, Town’s number 20 had two more chances to open the scoring, with the side feeling unlucky not to have broken the deadlock. His header on the first one went just wide of the near post, and the second one struck the inside of the post but didn’t go in.

The visitors did have a chance in between those from Omochere as Fisayo Dele-Bashiru was played in by a skilful Lee Gregory pass and, although his shot was on target, it didn’t trouble Jay Lynch as he comfortably saved the shot.

Town’s frontline were causing all sorts of problems throughout the half and Omochere had yet another chance to find the back of the net 25 minutes in, and he seemed to do well after being pulled back in the box, but his shot went wide off the mark.

Even though Wednesday could have gone ahead just after when Gregory headed Liam Palmer’s cross onto Lynch’s crossbar, it didn’t stop Fleetwood’s attacking threats as Patterson curled an effort just wide of the top-right, and Danny Andrew’s free-kick was well saved by Stockdale.

With the first real chance of the second half, Mendes Gomes found the back of the Wednesday goal what a goal it was! Patterson played a free-kick in towards the near post and Town’s number seven leapt higher than anyone else before his header flew into the net to make it 1-0.

Chances were at a premium in the second period after the Mendes Gomes goal, but the mentality shown by the Cods was enough to drag them over the line and earn the first Fifth Round spot in the Emirates FA Cup in the club’s history!

Town XI: Lynch (GK), Andrew (C), Wiredu, Mendes Gomes (Macadam 75’), Robertson, Warrington, Holgate, Omochere, Hayes, Patterson, Johnston.

Unused subs: McMullan (GK), Johnson, Nsiala, Boyle, Thiam, Baker, McMillan.

Owls XI: Stockdale (GK), Palmer (C) (Iorfa 46’), Brown, Wilks, Adeniran (Byers 70’), Gregory (Smith 46’), Famewo (Alimi-Adetoro 46’), Dele-Bashiru, Bakinson, Fusire (Windass 70’), Hunt.

Unused subs: Dawson (GK), Johnson, Shipston, Durrant.
