Huddersfield 1-2 Sheffield Utd

Two late goals saw Sheffield United come from behind at Yorkshire rivals Huddersfield to secure their place in the third round of the Carling Cup.

Nathan Clarke headed wide before the hosts went in front, Mike Flynn's 25-yard drive taking a deflection and flying past goalkeeper Ian Bennett.

Luke Beckett missed two chances to extend Huddersfield's advantage.

And the Blades levelled when Darius Henderson fired in right-footed, before Kyle Naughton's deflected drive won it.

Sheffield United boss Kevin Blackwell told BBC Radio Sheffield:

"Huddersfield deserved to win the game, I make no bones about that.

"Huddersfield get all the plaudits but United get the result and that's all that matters."
