FA Cup Preview: MK Dons v Owls

MK Dons
vs.
Wednesday

Stadium:mk

Tuesday, January 15

7.45pm

Wednesday will look to book their place in the FA Cup Fourth Round at the second time of asking tonight when they visit MK Dons.

The Owls failed to beat their League One opponents on home soil and require a replay in Milton Keynes to try and face either West Brom or QPR in the next round.

Karl Robinson's men will fancy their chances back on home soil but Wednesday have performed better on their travels in recent matches.

Vital Quotes:

Owls midfielder Kieran Lee told the Sheffield Star:

'It was a tough game against MK, they played really well when they came here. Obviously we're going there to win and do our best. Hopefully we'll do enough to get through to the next round.

'I've played against them a lot. Their main strength is keeping possession - we know that.

'They'll probably have lots of possession. But we know with the pace we've got we can catch them on the break.'

MK Dons Team News:

Plenty of former Wednesday players are expected to be involved for the Milton Keynes side but striker Ryan Lowe will have a late fitness test.

Defender Jon Otsemobor could return from injury to feature, however, after missing the match at Hillsborough earlier this month. He could join Darren Potter in the starting eleven.

Izale McLeod is cup-tied and George Baldock and Tom Flanagan are both unavailable through injury.

Player to watch: Darren Potter

The MK Dons side is expected to be packed full of former Owls and Potter will be hoping to pull the strings and guide his new side to victory and FA Cup progression.

Wednesday Team News:

Wednesday will be without on-loan midfielder Jeremy Helan, who is cup-tied.

Midfielder David Prutton is also unavailable as he serves the last of his two-game ban.

Owls boss Dave Jones could ring the changes to the side that defeated Hull City on Saturday, with players such as Mamady Sidibe and Gary Madine ready for starts.

Player to watch: Michail Antonio

Antonio's pace give Wednesday a much-needed outlet in the formation they set-up with away from home, and the Owls will be hoping he can add another goal after Saturday's strike at the KC Stadium.

I so wish for a couple of goals from Madine to finally kickstart his season. C'mon!
