While fifth-tier Wrexham advanced to the FA Cup fourth round, Newcastle suffered a shocking FA Cup exit against third-tier Sheffield Wednesday.
Hollywood celebrities Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, who co-own Wrexham, led the social media jubilation following their non-league team’s unexpected 4-3 victory at second division Coventry.
However, Sheffield Wednesday stole the show with their superb 2-1 win at Hillsborough over a third-placed Newcastle in the Premier League.
Eddie Howe’s team had gone 15 games without a loss in all competitions before Wednesday, who are currently second in League One, defeated the Magpies. As a result, Wednesday has now won 10 straight games without a loss.
When Windass, who appeared to be on the wrong side of the field, deflected Dennis Adeniran’s close-range pass, Wednesday took the lead. After being passed through by Michael Smith, Windass calmly converted his second goal 13 minutes later.
Bruno Guimaraes’ close-range goal in the 68th minute helped Newcastle cut the gap, but Chris Wood wasted a great chance to tie the score by shooting over from 10 yards away.
