Wednesday have been drawn at home against Hartlepool United in the northern area quarter-finals of the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy.

The Owls will host their npower League One rivals in the week commencing Monday, November 8 at Hillsborough.

The draw for the next round of the competition took place on this morning’s Soccer AM show on Sky Sports.

It gives Alan Irvine’s men a good chance to progress to the semi-final of the competition with another game on home soil.

The Owls progressed to the last eight in the northern section thanks to an 8-7 penalty shoot-out success against Chesterfield in midweek.

Hartlepool progressed thanks to a slender 1-0 victory over League Two side Bradford City on Tuesday night.

Carlisle v Crewe
Rotherham v Huddersfield
