FA Cup third round: Wednesday await


Filed: Sunday, 4th December 2011
By: Staff Writer


West Ham will face Sheffield Wednesday at Hillsborough in the third round of the FA Cup.

Former Hammers boss Gianfranco Zola picked the League One side out of the bag first before former Sheffield United star Li Tie drew West Ham's number 42 ball - the 18th ball picked.

Hillsborough - awash with mud and rain - was previously the venue for West Ham's famous 1964 FA Cup semi-final win against the mighty Manchester United. Goals from Ronnie Boyce (2) and Geoff Hurst secured a memorable 3-1 win for the Irons that day.

It was also where John Lyall's side were bundled out of the 1985/86 competition at the quarter final stage; Tony Cottee's goal not enough to prevent West Ham slipping to a 2-1 defeat.

In all, West Ham have played Wednesday four times in the FA Cup, drawing once and losing on the remaining three occasions.

The draw also threw up one or two other tantalising ties, including both Manchester and West Midlands derbies - plus a potential Dagenham v Millwall clash, should the Daggers beat Walsall in their forthcoming second round replay.

Full draw as follows; all ties to take place on the weekend of 7 and 8 January 2012.
