Few fans will forget our last trip to Bramall Lane - as we booked a cup final place at Wembley in dramatic style on 28 January, 2015.
We took on Sheffield United - then in League One, and managed by Nigel Clough - in the second leg of a League Cup semi-final clash. We had a narrow 1-0 advantage from the first leg thanks to Andros Townsend's penalty.
Everything looked to be going to plan when Christian Eriksen curled home a trademark free-kick to double our overall advantage on 28 minutes.
However, the home side, and particularly substitute Che Adams, had other ideas. Introduced on 74 minutes, Adams scored on 77 and 79 to turn the tie around on the night and level the scores on aggregate.
Extra time was looming and snow falling when Harry Kane picked Eriksen's run between defenders, and the Dane rolled past Mark Howard to level the scoreline at 2-2 on the night and secure a final 3-2 advantage.
