The Dane felt this was a good draw for his former club.
A solitary strike from Lewis McGugan squeezed past the flimsy hand of goalkeeper Tim Krul and the rest is now rather miserable history for any Toon fan.
Or indeed ex-player. One such man is retired Danish forward Peter Lovenkrands. He spent three-and-a-half years at St James Park over two separate spells on the North East and is something of a fan favourite.
Last night though, he was shocked by Newcastle’s results – especially considering his hopes for the game.
Didn't see the #NUFC game! a Shocking result! Can't believe we are out of the cup I thought it was a good draw for us before the game!— Peter Lovenkrands (@lovenkrands11) September 23, 2015
Like many a Newcastle fan he felt Wednesday was a great draw and a chance for Newcastle to progress in a cup competition.
A good cup run was high on Newcastle fans list of wants for the 2015-16 campaign and they will now have to rely on good performances in the FA Cup.
But if they cannot beat a much-changed Sheffield Wednesday in the League Cup what chance have they got of being at Wembley come the end of May.
