Fleetwood Town welcome Sheffield Wednesday to Highbury Stadium on Tuesday as both sides aim to reach the fifth round of the FA Cup.
The League One rivals played out a 1-1 draw at Hillsborough in the first meeting, setting up a pivotal replay in Lancashire.
Josh Earl scored an unfortunate own goal midway through the second half, and neither side managed to find a winner, although Sheffield Wednesday could – and probably should – have booked their place in the next round.
The Fishermen saw just 31% of the ball in the previous meeting, with the hosts dominating large spells
of the game, but Wednesday managed a solitary attempt on target throughout the clash, despite racking up 15 shots.
Fleetwood suffered a 3-2 defeat to Burton Albion on Saturday, with Charlie Kirk netting the winner for the visitors deep into stoppage time, meaning Scott Brown’s side have lost each of their last four league games.
As a result, Fleetwood find themselves just two points outside the relegation zone in the League One table, 32 points behind first-placed Sheffield Wednesday.
The Owls have only lost three of their 28 league matches this season, picking up 18 wins and seven draws along the way, and they also boast the best defensive record in the third tier, having conceded a measly 18 goals.
Darren Moore’s side extended their winning streak in the league to six games with a 1-0 victory over Plymouth Argyle on Saturday, keeping their fifth successive clean sheet in the process.
