Owls in hat for FA Cup first round draw

Wednesday will enter the hat for the FA Cup first round draw tomorrow.

All League One and League Two clubs will enter the world-famous competition alongside those non-league sides who've made it through the qualifying rounds.

The draw will take place live on ITV tomorrow, Sunday, at 1.30pm, and those who don't have access to a television can also watch it online at

The fourth qualifying round takes place this weekend and Wednesday could find themselves up against non-league opposition.

They could also face derby rivals Sheffield United, whilst League One rivals Huddersfield Town and Charlton Athletic would provide stiff, and unwanted, competition.

A non-league team away would do me - probably get on TV.

Dear Mr. Megson... Hope you are feeling well. Much as we understand your views on cup football taking a back seat to league games this season, I, on behalf of many Wednesdayites, would like to point out that the FA Cup holds a significant place in our hearts, as well as the national football calendar. We don't expect you to win the trophy but we hope you'll be sending out a side good enough to try and win every match. Yours sincerely...

Think Megson will take the FA Cup more seriously than the other cups, expect Mr Mandaric will make him do so - .

The FA Cup is played on a Saturday in place of the football league fixtures so there is no reason to play a second string side and it's all about continuity. The reason we're playing much better now is because we are only making changes when we are forced into it with injuries or suspensions.

we aint going to win it, cup run would add to the coffers, but promotion is the main priority so play the reserves for me
