For our Sheffield Wednesday vs. Fleetwood prediction, we're going for a 2-0 win for the home side.
We have an all League One clash in the FA Cup this weekend as promotion chasing Sheffield Wednesday face Fleetwood Town in the fourth round.
Sheffield Wednesday reached the fourth round of the FA Cup by beating Morecambe, 2-0, Mansfield Town, 2-1, and Newcastle United, 2-1.
The Owls inflicted one of the upsets of the third round as they beat then 3rd placed Premier League side Newcastle 2-1 in a what was a huge performance.
Wednesday are having an excellent season in League One and they enter this game 2nd in the league table and on a brilliant run of form.
The Owls enter this game having won each of their last five consecutive matches while remaining unbeaten in their last fifteen in all competitions.
Their home record is also extremely impressive, with The Owls winning each of their last four games on home soil in all competitions while also remaining unbeaten in their last thirteen home games in all competitions.
Sheffield Wednesday and Fleetwood have faced each other only four times in their history and The Owls have won all four games, with the most recent as soon as last weekend where Wednesday triumphed 1-0 in the league.
The Owls have a great chance of a heroic cup run this season as their form is excellent and they've already demonstrated an ability to dispatch higher league opposition. This is a favourable draw and a game they should win.
Fleetwood Town reached the fourth round of the FA Cup by beating Oxford City, 3-1, Ebbsfleet United, 1-0, and Queens Park Rangers, 2-1.
The Cod Army have been struggling of late in the league and have found themselves gradually sliding down the table amidst a poor run of form as they now sit 17th in the table, just five points clear of the relegation zone.
They enter this game off the back of a three-match losing streak having lost to Oxford United, 1-2, Sheffield Wednesday, 1-0, and most recently Portsmouth, 0-2.
Their away form is slightly more encouraging having won two, drawn one and lost two of their last five matches in all competitions.
This is the first time in Fleetwood's history that they've reached the fourth round of the FA Cup, but they've lost each of their last four ties in this competition when facing sides from League One.
A win here for Fleetwood would be historic but in all likelihood they will be short of the requisite quality to win. They're up against a formidable opponent who won't be taking this game lightly.
