Port Vale   2 - 0   Sheff Wed

League Two side Port Vale cruised past Sheffield Wednesday to reach the third round of the Carling Cup.

Vale, who beat Sheffield United in the first round, were always in command against the Championship outfit.

Their cause was helped by the first-half dismissal of Francis Jeffers who appeared to head-butt Tommy Fraser.

The home side scored two goals in two minutes to win it, Kris Taylor firing a fierce shot into the top corner on the hour before Robert Taylor hooked home.


Port Vale manager Micky Adams:

"I didn't like knocking Sheffield United out (in the last round), but beating Wednesday was a different matter. Even if we play Manchester United in the next round, this is the tops for me.

"I know people will say we beat 10 men and of course that was a factor, but I thought the attitude of my players was spot-on from the start. It would have been a travesty if we had not gone through.

"The game plan was to give Wednesday as little time on the ball as possible and I thought our tactics were spot-on. Every player did their bit and it is not a time to single out any individuals."

Sheff Wed boss Brian Laws on Jeffers's red card:

"I won't hide from anything and when I've seen it everyone will soon know what the outcome will be.

"What I will say now is you need 11 players on the pitch to win football matches and I'm bitterly disappointed to be out of the competition.

"No disrespect to Port Vale, but we were always going to be up against it when you play for almost an hour with 10 men."
