League One group The Premier League’s third-placed team, Newcastle United, was eliminated by Sheffield Wednesday in a famous FA Cup upset. 

The Owls prevailed in a thrilling tie at Hillsborough thanks to two goals from Josh Windass in the second half. 

With more than 20 minutes left, substitute Bruno Guimaraes gave Newcastle hope with a close-range goal, but they were unable to force an equalizer. 

Eddie Howe’s team has not lost since August 31 when they lost to Liverpool.

After a competitive first half in which both teams missed golden opportunities, Windass scored the game’s opening goal seven minutes into the second half by completing a smooth play. 

It was George Byers who got things going with a deft turn just inside the Newcastle half and a drive toward the penalty spot. 

He passed the ball wide to Liam Palmer, who slipped Dennis Adeniran through, and Windass tipped in Palmer’s cross-shot. 

The goal was upheld since there was no VAR in use and the forward appeared to be just a little bit offside.

The second was uncontroversial in all respects. Windass was set free by Michael Smith’s excellent first-time pass, and he displayed excellent control as he opened up his body and curled the ball past Martin Dubravka and into the far corner of the goal. 

Hillsborough was bouncing, but the lead held by the visitors was cut in half just four minutes later by Brazil midfielder Guimaraes, who also appeared to be just on the edge of offside, who stabbed in from a yard out after the Owls failed to deal with a corner.

Owls manager Darren Moore told the BBC, “It’s one of the proudest moments in my management career.” 

“Everyone at the club, including the players, has my sincere congratulations. We played quite well despite facing a very strong opposition.

“We approached it well since we were aware that we had to execute both on and off the ball. We have confidence in our ability to score goals, we did so, and in the very end, we stood firm against the attack.”

With eight minutes left, Chris Wood missed Newcastle’s finest opportunity to tie the score with a fierce long-range free-kick that rebounded off the bar. Despite many crucial saves from the home team’s goalkeeper Cameron Dawson, Windass came close to completing his hat-trick.

According to Moore, “we prevented them from getting into a rhythm, which gave us some hope in the game.” “They all did well, in my opinion. The focus will be on Josh, but Cameron made a few outstanding stops. 

You know you’re going to be tested by teams like this, so your goalkeeper needs to focus and be available when needed, which he was. 

Owls make Magpies pay for lost opportunities. 

Even with several alterations from their typical league lineup, a League One team is always likely to need a bit of luck to defeat a Premier League team that is in good form. 

Newcastle will regret the opportunities they missed, even though impressive Wednesday had lots of play for extended periods of time. 

However, Howe told BBC Sport, “We weren’t clinical enough when those good opportunities were there. We had enough chances to win the tie, and their goalkeeper made a number of brilliant stops. 

Sheffield Wednesday fought as hard as we did, but they were unsuccessful. We must accept the defeat. 

We haven’t lost many games this season, and Howe said, “It’s incredibly terrible; you don’t want to lose any game.” 

Alexander Isak was a record acquisition for Newcastle when he returned from a hamstring injury that had kept him out since September. He showed flashes of his talent, but there were also indications that he was rusty. 

The Sweden striker had a wonderful opportunity to give the opposition the lead, but Dawson should not have been given the opportunity to save his header from six yards out.

Later in the half, with room in the area, he shot directly at the goalkeeper, while Jacob Murphy ought to have performed better after being set free by a ball over the top. 

Late in the game, after being set up by Joelinton, Wood had the best opportunity of them, but he blew it by finishing poorly. 

Crucially, though, the Owls possessed the ability and tenacity to take advantage of Newcastle’s carelessness and bravely protect their lead to clinch a storied victory.
