Wednesday will face Premier League champions Manchester City in the third round of the Capital One Cup.

The Owls’ reward for coming through their second round clash at top-flight Burnley is another trip across the Pennines but, with all respect to the Clarets, a much tougher task lies in wait.

City enter the competition in the next round alongside the teams involved in European competition and are one of the favourites to lift the trophy this season.

Stuart Gray’s side, who also saw off Notts County in the first round, will have to cause one of the upsets of the competition if they are to progress.

The ties will be played in the week commencing September 22 and the match could be one selected for live TV coverage.
