Premier League away day is Owls reward

Last updated : 30 January 2011 By C. Morris

Sheffield Wednesday’s reward for negotiating their way past Hereford in the 4th round of the F.A. Cup is a 5th round clash with Birmingham City.

The Owls saw off the challenge of the League Two outfit by four goals to one at Hillsborough on Saturday and will now travel to St Andrews in search of a Premier League scalp on the weekend commencing Saturday 19th February.

With a place in the quarter finals up for grabs Wednesday are sure to take a large following to the midlands and the will hope that their hosts have one eye on their League Cup Final clash with Arsenal which takes place the following weekend.  

Elsewhere in the draw non-league Crawley were handed a plum tie away at Manchester United and Leyton Orient will host Arsenal.

The Owls were due to face Brentford at home that weekend and so the League One clash with the Londoners will need to be rescheduled.
