Swansea vs Sheffield Wednesday: FACup TV channel, kick-off time 5TH Round

After an atrocious, goalless first leg, Swansea and Sheffield Wednesday meet once again in a fifth round replay in the FA Cup. 

The first meeting was a dull, forgettable affair in South Yorkshire and now the sides will play each other in south Wales for a place in the quarter-finals. 

The winner will go on to face either Rochdale or Tottenham, who also drew in their first meeting, although their 2-2 was a lot more entertaining than the clash the Swans and the Owls produced. 

Both sides are coming off losses at the weekend with Swansea being beaten by Brighton and Wednesday losing to Aston Villa.
