Recent signing Frederico Vanancio is set to make his debut and will most likely feature should he receive international clearance. Vanancio will be keen to express his defensive footballing talent having arrived from Portuguese outfit Vitoria FC only last week, I'm sure, like myself, the Wednesday faithful will be keep a watchful eye on the new recruit.
In addition to Vanancio, players such as Joe Wildsmith, Liam Palmer, Atdhe Nuhiu and Sam Winnall may find themselves in the starting eleven for this evenings encounter, an opportunity they should all and will embrace.
Not only is the rotation system good tactically during a cup run, but, it gives the so called 'second string' players an opportunity to impress and post-match hopefully give Carlos Carvalhal a welcome headache.
Competition for places is higher than ever at S6, especially in the forward line. Furthermore, Lucas Joao and George Hirst are expected to find themselves on loan come the end of the transfer window. With this in mind, 110% effort and determination should be seen during this encounter, I cannot see anything other than a Wednesday victory. Maybe a Gary Madine consolation goal also if we are unlucky.
Prediction, 2-1 to the Owls!!!
