Matt Taylor says he does not know what to expect from Emirates FA Cup opponents Sheffield Wednesday, who travel to St James Park on Saturday.

With the Owls currently experience an outbreak of Covid-19 amongst their squad, it is likely they will be calling upon several youngsters to fill the rank for their trip to Devon, and the gaffer says this means the Championship outfit may be an unknown quanity.

"I have no idea what we're going to get from them on Saturday, but I need a clear indication what I expect from my players and that is an aggressive style of play.

"We can only focus on ourselves, and that's what I've said to my players. They'll still be very good players though!"
