Sheffield Wednesday vs Sunderland

Sunderland to win on penalties- 5/1!

Match preview

93 days after these two clubs met in the League One play-offs, Sheffield Wednesday will be seeking some revenge.

Back in May, Patrick Roberts’ 93rd minute equaliser at Hillsborough saw Sunderland reach the play-off final 2-1 on aggregate.

The Black Cats would go onto beat Wycombe Wanders at Wembley, thereby ending their four-year exile in the third-tier.

Alex Neil’s side have made a positive start to life back in the Championship, beating Bristol City 3-2 on Saturday having drawn 1-1 with Coventry six days earlier.

Sunderland actually reached the League Cup quarter-finals last season, their best run since 2014 when they were runners-up, bowing out at the hands of Arsenal.

So, will this be the start of another memorable cup adventure for the club from Wearside?

As mentioned, Sheffield Wednesday are rooted in League One, last spending back-to-back campaigns in the third-tier 11 years ago.

The Owls beat MK Dons on Saturday, taking their tally to four points following a thrilling 3-3 draw with Portsmouth.

In this competition, having fallen at this hurdle against Huddersfield 12 months ago, they’re looking to avoid back-to-back first round exits for the very first time.

This one could go either way in Yorkshire.
