Sheff Wed   3 - 2   Northampton

Tommy Miller scored two penalties as Sheffield Wednesday edged past Northampton in an entertaining game.

Mark Beevers put the hosts in front with a header from a Tommy Spurr corner before Miller doubled the lead after Liam Davis tripped Neil Mellor.

Billy McKay gave the Cobblers hope when he finished an Andy Holt cross but Miller's second spot-kick made it 3-1 when Paul Rodgers felled Mellor.

Kevin Thornton netted a quick free-kick in injury time but the Owls held on.


Sheffield Wednesday boss Alan Irvine told BBC Radio Sheffield:
"I thought first half we were excellent but, after the break, we were careless and let them back into the game.

"It could easily have been 5-0 at half-time but it's important you are ready for the second half.

"It's a great run. I'm delighted about it. I'm looking to keep that run going."

Northampton Town manager Ian Sampson tells BBC Radio Northampton:
"It was a good cup tie and I'm disappointed to get knocked out. For the first 25 minutes, we showed them too much respect, and we rode our luck a little bit.

"It was a very composed finish from Billy McKay - the two strikers worked hard and he deserved his goal.

"In the second half, I was delighted. We dominated for long periods but unfortunately it just went away from us."
