#PLHistory #PremierLeagueStories on Jan 19 1993 – Sheffield Wednesday are a top bracket team – Ipswich Boss #MickMcGiven

Ipswich Town boss Mick McGiven described their next cup opponents Sheffield Wednesday as a top bracket team. Wednesday was on a run of five wins in their previous six matches and had scored 16 goals in five matches played in the coca-cola cup.

The tie was crucial for both the clubs as it could reward them with as much as £500000 if they made it to the semi-finals when television rights, gate receipts, and sponsorship were added.

Mick McGiven said, “They are a very entertaining side – a joy to watch at times. They play some attacking football and from what I’ve seen this season I would put them in the top bracket. They produce good passing and movement and the midfield create and score goals.”
