Reserves beaten on penalties

dipped over Joel Castro Pereira's bar and, soon afterwards, a free-kick from the right was touched in by an unmarked Clough at the near post.

Rothwell scooped off target from a Pearson pass and, when Andreas Pereira was flagged offside in the dying seconds, a shoot-out was required to decide the victors. Reece James' shot over the bar proved to be the only penalty miss with Andreas Pereira, Guillermo Varela, Rothwell and Charni Ekangamene all finding the net. Clough, Hall, Josh Vela, Tom Walker and Oscar Threlkeld all beat Joel Castro Pereira to set up a semi-final date with Wigan Athletic.

United: J.Pereira; Varela, Thorpe, McNair, James; Janko, Pearson, Rothwell, Ekangamene, A.Pereira; Wilson (Rowley 81). Subs: Gollini, Weir, Rudge, Harrop.
