Wednesday draw City in the cup

The draw for the 4th round of the FA Cup was held on Monday evening and Sheffield Wednesday were the first team drawn out of the hat, they will face current Premier League champions and FA Cup holders Manchester City at Hillsborough.


The Owls have progressed to this stage thanks to two away wins, beating Brighton in the 3rd round and then QPR in the 4th round last Friday. Manchester City cruised past Fulham in round 4 on Sunday.

Wednesday last faced Manchester City in the FA Cup in 2015 when they led at half-time at the Etihad Stadium thanks to a goal from Atdhe Nuhiu but two late goals from James Milner saw the home side progress.

The tie will be played at some time during the midweek around Wednesday 4th March 2020.
