 [ LIVE: Swansea-Wednesday in FA Cup

Swans boss Carlos Carvalhal will take on his former team for the second time in 10 days after a 0-0 draw at Hillsborough set up the replay.

Remember: this tie will have to finish on Tuesday, so extra time and penalty kicks will take place if the teams are still locked together in South Wales.

Swansea suffered their first defeat in 11 games last time out as they were hammered 4-1 by Brighton in the Premier League. As for Carvalhal’s former club Wednesday, who fired him earlier this season, the Owls sit in 17th place in the table and are just seven points above the relegation zone.

The winner of this tie will host the winner of the other fifth round replay, Tottenham Hotspur or Rochdale who clash at Wembley on Wednesday, for a place in the FA Cup semifinal at Wembley.
