Fleetwood Town host Sheffield Wednesday at the Highbury Stadium for a fourth-round replay of their FA Cup clash on Wednesday (February 8). The twk sides played out a 1-1 draw last weekend in Sheffield, with Promise Omochere’s 52nd-minute opener cancelled out by Josh Earl, 19 minutes later.
Just days after the draw, the Fishermen saw another setback, as Burton Albion picked up a 3-2 victory at Highbury in their League One encounter. It was a topsy-turvy game that saw two goals in stoppage time, including Charlie Kirk’s winner for Albion in the 96th minute. Josh Vela was also sent off deep into the second half for the hosts.
It was their 11th league defeat of the season, and a fourth in a row, leaving them in 17th position in the standings with just 29 points from 28 games. Sheffield, meanwhile, picked up a narrow 1-0 win over Plymouth Argyle, with Callum Paterson scoring the only goal of the game in the seventh minute for their sixth league win on the bounce.
With 61 points in the bag, the Owls remain firmly atop the table and with a game in hand over Plymouth.
Fleetwood put up a stern performance away from home but Sheffield, for all their might this season, could up the ante and walk away with a win.

Fleetwood remain without long-term injury absentee Darnell Johnson, meaning Aristote Nsiala and Corrie Ndaba should occupy the centre-back positions on Tuesday.
Josh Vela was sent off in Saturday’s defeat to Burton, so Lewis Warrington is expected to feature in central midfield for the hosts.
After missing a handful of games due to injury, Barry Bannan is back in action for Sheffield Wednesday, and the influential captain will aim to enhance his tally of four goals and six assists on Tuesday.
Josh Windass has chalked up 11 goals and five assists in all competitions this season, while Michael Smith has bagged 10 goals and three assists, so they will lead the Owls’ attack.
