The BBC will broadcast live FA Cup football this evening as Swansea City host Sheffield Wednesday in a fifth round replay.
The original tie at Hillsborough ended in 0-0 draw, meaning the Swans face a third consecutive replay in this season’s competition, having also needed two attempts to progress past Wolverhampton Wanderers and Notts County respectively, though a repeat of the 8-1 shellacking they bestowed on the Magpies in round four seems unlikely.
The winner of this tie does have the added incentive of knowing should they claim victory here and move on to the sixth round, they will earn a home tie against the winners of tomorrow night’s replay between Tottenham Hotpur and Rochdale.
Coverage starts at 8.00pm on BBC One and BBC One HD with live streaming via the BBC iPlayer.
