* Small Heath (now Birmingham City) were drawn to play Sheffield Wednesday at home (which was then Muntz Street) but the tie was switched to Sheffield when Wednesday offered £200 for a switch of venue. Soon after the match kicked off at Owlerton there were crowd disturbances and Sheffield Wednesday later received a 14 day ground closure by the FA as a punishment.
