Fleetwood Town will host Sheffield Wednesday in the FA Cup fourth round replay at Highbury Stadium on Tuesday night. The two League One sides played out a 1-1 draw at Hillsborough in the first meeting on January 28. Promise Omochere gave the lead to Sheffield Wednesday seven minutes into the second half, before Fleetwood leveled the score, courtesy of an own goal by Josh Earl, twenty minutes from time. Meanwhile, both sides were involved in league-fixtures in the weekend, with the hosts losing 3-2 to Burton Albion, while the Owls edged past Plymouth Argyle 1-0. 

Fleetwood are languishing at the 17th spot in the English third tier standings, having collected 29 points from 28 games. Their latest outing ended in a defeat to Burton despite the fact that Jayden Stockley and Omochere found the back of the net. The result extended the Fishermen’s winless run to five games across all competitions. As a result the Cods find themselves just two points outside the relegation zone. However, Scott Brown’s side have fared pretty well in the Cup competition to reach this far, having got the better of Oxford City, Ebbsfleet United and Championship club Queens Park Rangers in the previous round fixtures. 

Sheffield United, on the other hand, are sitting at the summit of the League One table, with 61 points to their name, level on points with second-placed Plymouth Argyle, but separated by goal-difference. The Owls are well on course to earn promotion to the second tier of English football. Their last outing against Plymouth was decided by Callum Peterson’s lone effort inside the opening seven minutes. It was Darren More’s side’s sixth consecutive league-win, while extending their unbeaten run to 14 games across all competitions. After starting off their FA Cup campaign with a 2-0 win over Morecambe, the Owls defeated Mansfield Town before booking their place in the fourth round with a surprise 2-1 victory over Premier League outfit Newcastle United.
