Commentary

That's all for today, goodbye!
Wednesday put their name in the hat for the fourth-round draw which will be taking place on Sunday. For now, their attention turns back to the league when they travel to Wycombe Wanderers. Newcastle suffer just their second defeat of the season, but Howe will be hoping to put this behind them quickly as they have an EFL Cup quarter-final against Leicester City on Tuesday.
League One team Sheffield Wednesday cause an upset in the third round by knocking out Premier League Newcastle United with a 2-1 win. It was a tight first half, with both sides having good chances, but the game truly came to life after the break. Windass' double won them the game - his first was guided in from close range and his second was a curling finish after a quick counter. Guimaraes netted minutes later, tapping in the rebound from Dawson's save, and Windass was inches away from a hat-trick when his long-range free-kick smacked the bar.
90' + 8' FULL-TIME: SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY 2-1 NEWCASTLE UNITED.
90' + 8' Newcastle have one last chance to put the ball into the box as Trippier swings a deep cross in. Manquillo was stretching, but his header loops behind him and Wednesday clear the follow-up.
M. Wilks
J. Windass
Sheffield Wednesday
90' + 6' And Windass is also making way, with Wilks replacing him.
T. Bakinson
G. Byers
Sheffield Wednesday
90' + 6' Wednesday are making their last two changes as they look to run down the clock. Byers is the first to go off, with Bakinson on for him.
90' + 4' Wednesday are camped back in their own half as they defend their lead for the last few minutes of stoppage time. It's switched to the right for Trippier, but his cross is too high for Wood.
90' + 2' Byers was outmuscled by Joelinton, but he jarred his knee in the process. He stayed down during Newcastle's attack and he's now receiving treatment. He's okay to carry on.
90' There's going to be a minimum of six added minutes here at Hillsborough as Newcastle continue to search for an equaliser.
J. Hunt
L. Palmer
Sheffield Wednesday
88' And Palmer is also making way, with Hunt replacing him.
C. Paterson
M. Smith
Sheffield Wednesday
88' Wednesday finally have an opening to make the double change they've been waiting to. Smith is the first to go off, with Paterson coming on for him.
87' CHANCE! Almiron isn't picked up on the right and he fizzes a low cross to Ritchie just inside the box. He hits it first time, and just like Wood a few minutes ago, he sends it high over the bar into the stands.
86' Wednesday just can't clear their lines at the moment as Newcastle win corner after corner. Ritchie puts it back into the middle for Botman, who goes for the volley on the turn, but Iorfa is there to block this one.
84' The corner count keeps going up for Newcastle as Joelinton sees a cross blocked this time. Trippier swings it in, but Smith does his defensive duties by nodding it over.
82' WHAT A CHANCE! The space opens up for Newcastle on the attack this time, as Trippier plays a superb first-time pass through the lines to Joelinton. He squares it to Wood, who opens up his foot before blazing his shot high over the goal.
80' Still, the visitors dominate possession and Guimaraes tries to slide it through to Ritchie. Byers slides in with a perfectly-timed tackle, and another Newcastle attack is broken up.
78' BLOCK! Newcastle break quickly on the counter and Willock makes a weaving run through the crowd on the edge of the box to get a sight of goal. He tries to catch the keeper out at his near post, but James sticks out a leg to block it.
76' OFF THE BAR! Windass does take the shot on from the free-kick and it takes a nick off Joelinton in the wall. Dubravka is diving, but it's just out of his reach as it smacks back off the crossbar.
75' Newcastle give away another cheap free-kick, and Windass is standing over the free-kick through the middle. He's a long way out, but it looks like he's going to strike this...
73' Wednesday win a free-kick in midfield and Vaulks tries to float it towards the far post. Byers is chasing it down, but there's too much on it and it flies harmlessly out.
71' Newcastle have the momentum now and Guimaraes threads it through to Wood in the middle of the box. He's under pressure so takes the shot quickly, but it's another good block by McGuinness.
Bruno Guimarães
Goal
Newcastle United
69' GUIMARAES PULLS ONE BACK! Trippier is thrust straight into the action as he goes across to take Newcastle's corner. Wood glances it on at the near post and Dawson smothers his shot but Guimaraes is on hand to tap it over the line. He was standing well offside, but the official didn't spot it, and it's 2-1!
K. Trippier
J. Lewis
Newcastle United
69' Final roll of the dice for Newcastle now as Trippier comes on in place of Lewis.
68' GOOD BLOCK! Joelinton decides to go it alone, driving into the box and riding the challenge from Palmer before checking back into a shooting position. He drills it towards the near post and McGuinness slides in to send it wide.
67' Newcastle are back in possession, but they're struggling to get it into the final third. Wednesday are keeping their shape well and making it difficult.
M. Smith
Assist
Sheffield Wednesday
65' Smith put Joelinton under pressure during an aerial challenge before reacting first to get to the loose touch.
J. Windass
Goal
Sheffield Wednesday
65' WINDASS SCORES AGAIN! Joelinton sticks out a leg to try and control the ball, but it bounces kindly to Smith instead. He slides it straight through the middle for Windass and he gets between both the Newcastle defenders to curl his shot past Dubravka, who was off his line, and into the back of the net. 2-0 Wednesday!
64' Smith makes a weaving run through midfield, brushing aside two Newcastle players before Guimaraes picks his pocket. He goes long towards Wood, but he can't bring it down under pressure from James.
62' Windass is racing into the middle and crashes into Guimaraes in the process. The medical team are on to see to him, but he's going to be able to carry on.
J. Willock
E. Anderson
Newcastle United
60' And Anderson is the final player to go off, with Willock coming on for him.
M. Almirón
J. Murphy
Newcastle United
60' Murphy's game also comes to an early end with Almiron on in his place.
Bruno Guimarães
S. Longstaff
Newcastle United
60' Howe looks to his bench for reinforcements and he's making a triple change. Longstaff is the first to make way, with Guimaraes replacing him.
58' GOOD SAVE! Straight down the other end, Murphy sees the space open up ahead of him and he smashes a shot on goal from range. It's swerving through the air and Dawson gets a strong hand onto it.
57' SAVE! Wednesday break quickly on the counter again and Smith is slid in behind Newcastle's defence. His shot takes a nick off Botman on the way through, and Dubravka stretches to push it away.
56' Newcastle are trying to work it upfield quickly, but they're getting a little sloppy in the final third. Murphy's loose touch gifts the ball back to Byers and Wednesday can clear the danger.
54' GREAT SAVE! Newcastle are looking to have an instant response from a corner and Botman's half-volley is blocked by Vaulks. It rebounds out to Anderson, who instinctively turns it towards goal, but Dawson sticks out a leg to deny him.
D. Adeniran
Assist
Sheffield Wednesday
52' It's a good impact from the substitute, who plays his low pass through Botman's legs to pick out Windass' run.
J. Windass
Goal
Sheffield Wednesday
52' WINDASS SCORES! The move starts with a lovely turn from Byers as he spins between two Newcastle defenders to set Wednesday on the attack. It's spread out to Palmer on the right, who helps it onto Adeniran. He picks out Windass at the near post and he just guides it past Dubravka into the net. 1-0 Wednesday!
51' CLOSE! Botman finds himself high upfield, and when it's played back to him, he decides to take on the shot himself. It's a clean strike that has Dawson diving towards his near post, but it flies just wide.
50' Anderson plays a one-two with Murphy, who has a lot of space down the left. It's pulled back to Wood in the middle, but his first-time shot is straight at McGuinness.
48' Byers accidentally clips the back of Ritchie's heels as he runs past him, and the Newcastle man is down. He was caught on his Achilles and is receiving treatment, but he'll be able to carry on.
46' Newcastle get us back under way for the second half!
D. Adeniran
F. Dele-Bashiru
Sheffield Wednesday
46' And Dele-Bashiru, who received a yellow card right at the end of the first half, is also going off, with Adeniran on for him.
C. Wood
A. Isak
Newcastle United
46' Both sides are making a change at the break, starting with Newcastle. Isak's return from injury ends after 45 minutes, with Wood replacing him.
Howe will be pleased with what he's seen so far. Apart from a couple of stray backpasses which they haven't been punished for, Newcastle have been in control and had better chances. He'll be looking for them to be more clinical in front of goal. Wednesday are still in this game though, and Moore will be urging them to take more risks.
It's goalless at the break between Sheffield Wednesday and Newcastle United. Both sides have had good chances to take the lead, with Isak forcing Dawson into a brilliant save early on before smothering another attempt later in the half. Wednesday have also come close, with Windass firing wide after latching onto a loose backpass and Palmer also couldn't direct his shot on target.
45' + 2' HALF-TIME: SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY 0-0 NEWCASTLE UNITED.
F. Dele-Bashiru
Yellow Card
Sheffield Wednesday
45' + 1' Dele-Bashiru is dispossessed by Longstaff, and he then catches the midfielder in his frustration. He's shown the first yellow card of the game.
44' Longstaff lifts it over the top to Murphy, and Wednesday are looking for a flag that doesn't come. Murphy chips the ball over Dawson, but it's bouncing wide before Iorfa helps it away.
42' Ritchie has another chance to deliver a free-kick into the box and his floated cross is hooked away to McGuinness. Manquillo puts it straight back into the middle, but Joelinton doesn't see it bounce right behind him.
40' Vaulks gets a nudge in the back as he leaps for the ball, but the foul goes against him as it hit his arm which was over his head. Newcastle have a free-kick just outside the box, but Isak's low curling effort is straight into the wall.
39' Longstaff slides it through to Murphy, who has space in front of him, but Wednesday players are closing him down from each side. He slows down instead of driving into the box and wastes a good chance for the hosts.
37' CLOSE! Vaulks knows he's about to be closed down so he whips an early cross into the box. Windass is hovering in the middle, but Botman gets a vital touch to take it out of his path and helps it just wide of the far post.
36' It's better from Wednesday here as they pass themselves out of a tight spot before Byers slides it through for Smith. He can't shake Botman though and Newcastle get it away.
34' Joelinton hits a crossfield pass against his own team-mate and fouls Vaulks in his attempts to make up for it. Wednesday take the free-kick quickly, but Smith drifts offside down the left.
32' Newcastle are getting a lot of joy down their right, and Manquillo is able to charge into the space again. The cross lets him down this time though as Vaulks gets back to get it away.
30' Ritchie knocks it out to Manquillo on the right before continuing his run into the box and getting on the end of the cross. He swings at it, but it bounces off his shin before looping onto the roof of the net.
28' Palmer picks Longstaff's pocket and weaves his way forward. The referee has a think before pulling it back for a foul, and the home fans aren't happy with that decision.
26' Smith tracks back and does well to win the ball off Lewis on the halfway line. He touches it on to Palmer, who attempts to set his side on the counter, but Newcastle easily intercept it again.
24' GOOD SAVE! It's well worked down the right by Newcastle as Manquillo cuts inside before threading it through to Isak. He has acres of space and hits his shot across goal, but Dawson stands his ground to block it.
22' Isak has drifted out to the right and he initially does well to get away from Johnson but then lets himself down with a heavy touch in the box. James gets across to cover, clearing the danger.
20' There's another nervy moment at the back for Newcastle as Lascelles knocks it back to the keeper. Windass is bearing down on him quickly and Dubravka is forced into rushing his clearance straight out.
18' Lewis makes the overlapping run down the left this time and plays a dangerous low cross into the box. Joelinton is closest to it, but he pokes his shot against James.
16' Newcastle are looking to up the pressure here as Lewis looks to pick out Murphy's run down the left. The winger peeled off the back of Palmer but set off too early and the flag goes up.
14' GREAT CHANCE! Anderson sends a really poor backpass to Dubravka that plays in Windass just inside the box. Dubravka rushes off his line and makes the forward's mind up for him as he stretches to hit it first time but shoots wide.
13' Wednesday are claiming there was a nudge on Johnson, but the referee doesn't think so as Manquillo chases the loose ball. Dawson rushes off his line and is chipped by the cross, but McGuinness heads it clear.
11' Newcastle have lost their last three matches against Wednesday in all competitions, losing twice to the Owls in their 2016-17 title-winning Championship season.
9' Wednesday are enjoying a good spell of possession here, but it's all in front of Newcastle. They're knocking it around nicely without being able to get forward.
7' WHAT A SAVE! Ritchie slides it forward for Manquillo on the overlap, and he clips a good cross in from the left. Isak makes a late jump to thump a header on goal and Dawson gets a strong hand to it to push it away.
6' GOOD CHANCE! Murphy isn't paying attention as Lewis gives him the throw-in, and Palmer steps in to win it and darts into the box. He decides to go for goal himself but drags his low shot wide of the far post.
4' Isak stretches in front of McGuinness to win the ball back before being fouled by the defender. Ritchie swings another free-kick from the left and picks out Anderson, but he sends his header over.
2' Newcastle win a free-kick on the left and Ritchie swings a good cross onto the edge of the box. It's Iorfa that rises highest though and he thumps it away.
1' Windass gets the game under way for Wednesday!
The teams are out on the pitch now, with kick-off just moments away!
Wednesday have been eliminated in five of their six FA Cup ties against Newcastle. The only time they progressed was in 1965-66, going on to reach the final that year, only to lose 3-2 to Everton.
Eddie Howe rings the changes, making eight from their goalless draw with Arsenal on Tuesday. Botman, Longstaff and Joelinton are the only ones to retain their places. They're boosted by the return of Isak from injury, as he comes straight into the side. Almiron, Guimaraes, Trippier and Willock are among the options on the bench.
Darren Moore makes just two changes to the side that brushed aside Cambridge last time out in League One. Iorfa comes into the defence, with Dele-Bashiru the other player brought in. Wilks and Patterson drop to the bench.
NEWCASTLE UNITED SUBS: Dan Burn, Ryan Fraser, Paul Dummett, Miguel Almiron, Joe Willock, Bruno Guimaraes, Karl Darlow, Chris Wood, Kieran Trippier.
NEWCASTLE UNITED STARTING XI (4-3-3): Martin Dubravka; Javier Manquillo, Jamaal Lascelles, Sven Botman, Jamal Lewis; Sean Longstaff, Elliot Anderson, Joelinton; Matt Ritchie, Alexander Isak, Jacob Murphy.
SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY SUBS: Jack Hunt, Mallik Wilks, David Stockdale, Tyreeq Bakinson, Alex Mighten, Dennis Adeniran, Akin Famewo, Jaden Brown, Callum Paterson.
SHEFFIELD WEDNESDAY STARTING XI (4-3-1-2): Cameron Dawson; Liam Palmer, Dominic Iorfa, Mark McGuinness, Reece James; Marvin Johnson, Fisayo Dele-Bashiru, George Byers; Will Vaulks; Michael Smith, Josh Windass.
High-flying Newcastle are looking to capitalise on their league form by mounting another cup run alongside it. They're unbeaten in their last 15 matches in all competitions (W9 D6) and boast the best defensive record in the Premier League. However, they did exit the tournament at this stage last season when they lost 1-0 to Cambridge United. Wednesday have already beaten Morecambe and Mansfield Town to reach this stage. They're also in good form coming into this match, going unbeaten in their last nine in all competitions (W6 D3), and have won each of their last three outings.
