Carling Cup: Wednesday Round-up

Wednesday as compared to Tuesday threw a few more EPL teams out of the competition, the biggest being Chelsea. They lost to Charlton 4-5 in penalties after the game ended at 1-1 after extra time (Robben,Darren Bent). Huth missed the penalty and Andersen was the hero for Charlton, keeping out the penalty. Thus ended Chelsea's dream of a quadruple for the season. Bolton won at home with a Borgetti winner in the second half. Everton's cup of woe runeth over with another loss, now to Middlesbrough. ManUtd gave starts to most of their young brigade and Rossi, Ebanks-Blake, Miller and Kiren on target after Barnet's goalkeeper was given marching order after just 2 minutes (due to handling the ball outside the penalty area). Shearer assured Newcastle's progess in the Cup with a winner 10 minutes from time.
