Sheff Wed (1) 2-1 (1) Fulham

Atdhe Nuhiu's second-half goal sent Fulham out of the FA Cup.

Beaten at home in the league by Ross Wallace's brilliant goal for Sheffield Wednesday last weekend, they went behind to another superb long-range strike.

This time the Owls' scorer was Barry Bannan, whose blistering shot went in off the underside of the bar three minutes before half-time.

But Fulham, in their second match under new boss Slavisa Jokanovic, hit back a minute later when Moussa Dembele - who had come on for the injured Cauley Woodrow - pounced in a crowded penalty area and fired home.

The visitors then had chances to go ahead, but Ross McCormack was denied by keeper Joe Wildsmith, who also produced a fine reaction save to keep out Dembele's header.

And Alex Kacaniklic missed a glorious opportunity for the Whites when he was unable to apply the finishing touch after being found by Tom Cairney's cross.

It was to prove a costly miss as Wednesday managed to regain the lead with 18 minutes remaining.

Lucas Joao's cross was met by Nuhiu, who hit his shot into ground and the ball bounced up and into the left-hand corner.
