Posted on 21 January 2015  - 23:06

Action from Wednesday evening's 1-0 win over Sheffield United in our Capital One Cup semi-final first leg at White Hart Lane.

Our League One opponents prevented us from creating too many chances, with the game's decisive moment coming in the 74th minute.

Jay McEveley was penalised for handball and Andros Townsend stepped up to fire the resulting penalty past Mark Howard in the Blades' goal.

We consequently take a slender advantage into next week's second leg at Bramall Lane.
