The reasoning behind the move is that because Plymouth Argyle won their FA Cup replay against the Owls on Tuesday, they will now be playing their second-round tie on the previous Sunday. That means their televised Tuesday match against Milton Keynes Dons has been pushed back 24 hours to give them extra preparation time, and will still be shown by the satellite television station.

Had Wednesday won the replay, they would have been playing on Sunday in round two.

The move shows utter contempt for one of the country's biggest away followings, and the Owls have apologised for "any inconvenience caused for a situation outside of the club’s control."
