Yesterdays: Pressman's penalty heroics!

10 October 2014

On this day 13 years ago, the Owls overcame Crystal Palace in a dramatic League Cup-tie at Hillsborough.

Simon Rodger put the visitors ahead in the first half but Ashley Westwood levelled after the break to send the game into extra time.

The Londoners struck again through Aki Riihilahti but the Owls forced a penalty shootout six minutes from time when Tony Crane nodded past Matt Clarke.

As the game went to spot kicks, up stepped hero of the hour Kevin Pressman who made key stops from 12 yards to book the Owls' place in the next round.
