The Owls were given a home tie against the financially-struggling Shakers, who last season won promotion to League One.

The two sides last met in League One in 2012 when Wednesday came out 4-1 winners after two goals from Michail Antonio and one apiece from Gary Madine and ex-Bury manager Ryan Lowe.

Wednesday reached the second round stage last season having beaten Sunderland at the Stadium of Light before losing to Wolves at Hillsborough.
