Sheff Wed   4 - 1   Hereford

Jones and Potter celebrate Sheffield Wednesday's equaliser
Jones and Potter celebrate Sheffield Wednesday's equaliser

Two second-half penalties from Clinton Morrison helped Sheffield Wednesday beat 10-man Hereford of League Two and reach the fifth round of the FA Cup.

Stuart Fleetwood silenced Hillsborough when he gave the Bulls a shock lead.

But Darren Potter equalised six minutes later, before Hereford's Joe Heath was dismissed for a cynical challenge on Morrison in the penalty area.

Morrison scored from the spot, adding another penalty 10 minutes later after Jermaine Johnson found the top corner.

The visitors got off to a dream start when Stuart Fleetwood was afforded the time to bring Jake Jervis's cross down six yards out, before turning and firing home.

But after Potter found the net from Daniel Jones's pull-back in the 15th minute, the Owls looked likely to add another before half time as the tide turned.

Hereford continued to enjoy some promising moments, with Fleetwood and Janos Kovacs coming close.

However, they would and should have been behind in the 25th minute when Clinton Morrison got into a great position in the box, but somehow managed to knee the ball over the bar from a yard out.

A sweeping attack by Wednesday almost produced their second goal of the game, but Bartlett got down well to make a smart save from Gary Teale.

Hereford continued to defend stubbornly, but Wednesday's dominance was finally rewarded in the 69th minute when Heath was dismissed for a foul that denied Morrison an opportunity to strike at goal.

But the striker was given that opportunity from the spot, and despatched his kick with ease.

Despite missing chances to put the game beyond doubt, the home side went 3-1 up in the 77th minute after a surging run and accurate finish from the lively Johnson gave them a deserved two-goal cushion.

The rout was complete barely two minutes later, when Morrison scored his second of the afternoon after Hereford captain Michael Townsend had handled in the box.
