MATCH SUMMARY

If the first game was defined by fog then the replay was all about mud. So much mud that with the full time score at 0-0 the referee declined to play the additional 30 minutes extra time as the surface was simply unplayable. Another replay beckoned to earn a place in the League Cup Quarter Finals.
