Shots looking to take down Owls

Aldershot Town have already enjoyed some cup success this season and they have another opportunity as they get set to take on Sheffield Wednesday on December 3.

The Shots are lingering in mid table in League Two, but manager Dean Holdsworth has got his team up for the domestic cups this term and they are certainly a side that should not be taken lightly by any means.

Holdsworth's men managed to get past Rochdale, Carlisle and most impressively West Ham in the Carling Cup before being put to the sword by Premier League giants Manchester United. People looking at the FA Cup free bets should remember this.

Aldershot will have already enjoyed the financial benefits of their run in the League Cup and a decent stint in the FA Cup would do their manager's transfer budget no harm as the hope to climb the League Two table.

However if they want to reach the third round and potential face up against another Premier League giant they will first have to get past the Owls, who are in a rich vein of form at the moment. Those following the football predictions should bear this in mind.

Wednesday have only suffered one defeat in their last 11 outings in all competitions and under manager Gary Megson they are starting to gel.

The Sheffield outfit are just two points off the automatic places in League One and promotion back into the Championship will be key for them this season.

Megson could be tempted to give fringe players a run out at Hillsborough for this FA Cup clash so don't be too surprised if Holdsworth's men cause another upset in December.
